BURBANK - Almost two weeks removed from its last competitive action, the Providence High girls' basketball team showed some rust. Yet, the Pioneers also showed some grit, highlighted by a defense that forced 28 turnovers and scored enough transition baskets to make up for a slow offensive effort in a 42-29 victory over visiting Vista Tri-City Christian in the opening round of the CIF State Division V basketball playoffs Wednesday evening at the...

BURBANK- The Providence girls' basketball team wrapped up a long day of basketball as participants in the final game of the 2013 Pioneers Hoop Showdown by taking on Rolling Hills Prep. However, the visiting Huskies had the last word, as they used their superior size to capture a 45-38 victory. “We got a pretty tough schedule,” Providence Coach Andrew Bencze said. “Usually this time of year we're in league and winning by 20-25 and there is a lot of confidence going.

Posed with an earlier start Friday or playing on Saturday, second-seeded Bellarmine-Jefferson High's boys' basketball team chose the former in its CIF Southern Section Division V-A second-round game at Mesa Grande Academy. What resulted was a bit of a lackluster first half for the Guards, but perhaps a needed wake-up call, as Bell-Jeff thumped Mesa Grande, 73-49, on Friday afternoon. "To be honest, we didn't play very good. Second half, we came out and played a lot better," Guards Coach Julian Andrade said.

When Abid Oses was a sophomore last season for the Bellarmine-Jefferson High boys' basketball team, he had to share the floor with a group of seniors. As a result, he took a back seat in most of the Guards' games and ended up averaging a steady 13 points a contest. With the graduation of the senior contingent, Oses took more of a centralized role this past season for Bell-Jeff. The junior stepped into the role nicely, leading the team in scoring and helping the Guards advance to the CIF Southern Section quarterfinals.

After moving from the Las Vegas area last summer, Yazzy Sa'Dullah had little difficulty adjusting to the culture Burbank had to offer.

It didn't take long for Sa'Dullah to make an impression after trying out for the team during the first week of school in August. After meeting Burbank Coach Bruce Breeden, she made a favorable impression on the Bulldogs following the first practice session. “We had a five-on-five session and you could see she was quite a player within about five minutes,” Breeden said.

BURBANK - A Burroughs High girls' basketball squad that has shown resiliency all season did so once again in its CIF Southern Section Division I-A quarterfinal playoff game on Saturday evening. Previous instances resulted in the Indians coming out victorious in the midst of an undefeated Pacific League season that gave them the title and, more recently, two postseason victories that set up a home showdown with Huntington Beach for the right to clinch a berth in the semifinals. PHOTOS: Burroughs vs. Huntington Beach girls' basketball in CIF quarterfinal playoffs Burroughs had a spirited second-half comeback attempt against the Oilers in front of a near capacity crowd at Burroughs High, but a first half littered with turnovers proved to be too much to overcome for the Indians, who succumbed to relentless defense and an athletic Huntington Beach team that has dropped just two games all season.

CHINO - Up by 18 points at halftime, it didn't stand to reason that the Burroughs High girls' basketball team would have to sweat another close finish. Yet, the Indians found themselves again in a tight contest late, this time against host Chino in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs on Wednesday evening. Fortunately for Burroughs, the setting was familiar to a squad that won a Pacific League championship thanks in part to several close victories.

BURBANK - For many of the Burroughs High girls' basketball players, they had never experienced what it's like to get a win in the CIF Southern Section playoffs. That's because coming into Saturday night's Division I-A first-round game, the Indians hadn't posted a postseason win since 2011. That year Burroughs advanced to the quarterfinals, losing to Inglewood. It might have been some playoff jitters that affected Burroughs in its opener at home against Riverside Poly. The Indians were shaky in the first quarter and couldn't seem to get into a rhythm.
