BURROUGHS HIGH — The Burroughs High girls' basketball team had plenty of reason to be confident heading into Thursday night's first-round CIF Southern Section Division II-AA playoff game against visiting Mission Viejo.
The Pacific-League-champion Indians rolled into the contest winners of 11 straight games and had already set the all-time program mark for victories in a single season.
But still, it's playoff time, which means every tournament team has earned the right to compete on this stage.
Regardless, against Mission Viejo, Burroughs imposed their will from the outset and was dominant to the finish.
Burroughs, the No. 4 seed, scored first, never trailed and won the blowout, 52-35.
With the win, the Indians advanced to play Saugus (14-14) at 7 p.m. today at Burroughs. The Centurions won their postseason opener Thursday, defeating Marina, 45-33.
