Boys Basketball teams advance in CIF playoffs
Lone Pine made quick work of Bloomington Christian in the CIF opening round winning 70-49. The Golden Eagles big three were indeed big with Brad Greene leading the way with a triple double. Lone Pine will now travel to Santa Barbara to face #9 Bishop Diego. The second round game will be played Friday night. A win in the second round would most likely set up a quarterfinal game with #1 seed Bell Jeff. The potential Bell Jeff-Lone Pine showdown would be played in Bell Jeff on Tuesday, February 24th.
