Erik Boal FLINTRIDGE PREP -- The fact that the Flintridge Prep boys' basketball team was outrebounded, 43-22, in Wednesday night's nonleague game against Ribet Academy was only one of Coach Garrett Ohara's concerns. Other pressing issues such as being able to consistently inbounds the ball, not turning the ball over in the half-court offense and making free throws were also foremost in Ohara's mind following the Rebels 68-44 loss to the Frogs in the Rebel gym. Flintridge Prep (3-2)

When making their selections Sunday, the CIF office chose St. Francis as one of two teams to receive an at-large berth from the Western Division with St. Francis' strength of schedule being a critical factor.

LOS ANGELES  -  Back following two seasons away from football, Kareem Ismail became the biggest target on the field when it mattered most for the Flintridge Prep football team. The 6-foot-7 Ismail, who last played during his freshman season before seeing his career put on hold because of injuries, made the two biggest catches of the season for himself and the Rebels. Ismail's biggest reception came when he hauled in a 15-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Clayton Weirick in the first overtime to give visiting Flintridge Prep a 34-28 upset win against Ribet Academy on Friday night in a CIF Southern Section Northeast Division first-round contest.

For the first time in his brief head coaching career, Flintridge Prep's Antonio Harrison found himself at the CIF Southern Section offices for the release of the football playoff pairings. For only the second time in his 12 years as St. Francis' head coach, Jim Bonds and his Golden Knights looked as if they wouldn't find themselves in the postseason. But on Sunday, Harrison realized him and his Rebels were right where they wanted to be, while Bonds and his Golden Knights were pleasantly surprised to find themselves right where they're used to being - in the playoffs.

Once he arrived in California from his native land of Guadeloupe in the summer of 2008, Gill Tacita had plenty to learn without much time to learn it. First, he needed to grasp the English language. In addition, Tacita also learned that the skill level of basketball in Guadeloupe didn’t compare to that in the United States, where it’s one of the more popular sports to play and follow from the high school ranks to the NBA. Tacita’s comprehension of English vastly improved and so has his basketball skills while playing forward for the Renaissance Academy basketball team.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — While testing themselves against a team with legitimate size in the post, the members of the Renaissance Academy boys’ basketball team also managed to test the patience of their coach. The Wildcats would eventually pass all tests on Tuesday night, defeating visiting Ribet Academy, 72-62, but not before allowing the Frogs to make the game far too close for comfort early in the second half. Gil Tacita’s second-effort layup with 43.9 seconds left, capping a much stronger fourth-quarter showing, gave the Wildcats an eight-point lead and rendered the game an exercise in intentional fouling the rest of the way. “We had bad ‘D’ and we made a few mistakes,” Tacita, who scored 17 points, said of a stretch between the end of the second quarter and the beginning of the fourth that saw Ribet twice pull to within three points after trailing by as many as 16. “Coach just told us ‘Play harder,’ and we did.” Renaissance (16-8)
