BURBANK HIGH — The looming dog days of summer may be a slower period for many teams, but for the Burbank High boys' basketball squad, it's hardly an offseason.
The Bulldogs concluded their 2010-2011 campaign back in February with a 41-39 first-round playoff loss at Mission Viejo, a team that went on to play for a CIF Southern Section championship.
Burbank finished the season with a 16-12 overall record and graduated senior starting forwards Adam Colman and Chris White.
That campaign came a year after a record-breaking 2009-10 season in which the Bulldogs advanced to the CIF semifinals.
"We did lose a couple of three-year guys that meant a lot to the program," Burbank Coach Jose Hernandez said. "We definitely feel like we underachieved last year."
