With senior swingman Josh Thomas going into playmaker mode in the second half and Justin Cook and Anthony Stover leading the way in the scoring column, top-seeded Renaissance advanced to the semifinals with a 70-48 victory at Notre Dame Riverside.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — While relieved to advance to the semifinals, Renaissance Academy basketball Coach Sid Cooke was anything but pleased with his team's performance. In Tuesday's CIF Southern Section Division III quarterfinal, the Wildcats allowed visiting Santa Fe to hang around well into the closing minutes of the fourth quarter before pulling away for a 67-54 victory. "We were just trying to slow the ball down to run time, but [the Chiefs] were good enough to make us run," said Renaissance guard Josh Thomas of the pressure the team faced in protecting a 59-51 lead with 2:30 to play.
