"I am more than happy to have Burroughs and Burbank in our league. I think it adds to the league," Snodgress said. "Burbank and Glendale have been sister cities for so long, and it's natural that the teams from the cities are in the same league.
"Demographically, it just makes sense."
Riding an emotional 52-50 league overtime victory Friday against cross-town rival Hoover, Glendale used a stingy defense and some timely outside shooting to get past Burbank.
The game was a crucial one for both teams, which are fighting for CIF Southern Section playoff spots. With eight teams in the league, at least four will qualify for the postseason.
The win knots the teams at 3-4 in league, as a host of schools are trailing league-leading Pasadena.
Burbank (10-9) came into the game with a three-game league winning streak. However, the Bulldogs were cold from the floor from the outset against Glendale, converting just 16 of 55 shots (29%).
"Ugly," said Burbank Coach Jose Hernandez, describing his team's play. "We didn't shoot well, and were just forcing up shots from the outside.
"This is not the way we want to be playing at this point in the season. We are going to have to regroup and be ready for our next game."
The Nitros (9-10) didn't exactly torch the rims themselves, making 17 of their 48 shots (35%).
"Both teams came out a little [sluggish] for the Monday night game," Snodgress said. "But I'm happy with the way we were able to break out of that and get the win."
Snodgress went with a 2-3 zone defense that worked well against the Bulldogs. Burbank had trouble penetrating to the basket, and many times resorted to shots from the outside.
