BURBANK — For the first time in Julian Andrade's three-year tenure as Bellarmine-Jefferson High head boys' basketball coach, he will be at the helm as his team plays a second round playoff game.
More than likely, the road game on Friday night will offer more resistance than Wednesday night’s CIF Southern Section Division IV-AA first-round home playoff match against Academy of Careers & Exploration.
The Guards made quick work of the Eagles, cruising to an 87-28 victory.
“Hard work paid off,” said Andrade, who has coached the Guards to a 16-11 record and a second-place showing in the Santa Fe League. “We were able to get the high seed and play a game like this.”
