Boys Basketball: Pasadena reaches the promise land, will take on Eisenhower on Saturday at Honda Center.

CIF-SOUTHERN SECTION PLAYOFFS
DIVISION 2A CHAMPIONSHIP
SATURDAY, 12:30 P.M.
AT HONDA CENTER
NO. 2 PASADENA (24-6) vs. NO. 1 EISENHOWER (27-5)

The top two seeds will meet when No. 2 Pasadena (24-6) takes on No. 1 Eisenhower (27-5) in the CIF-Southern Section Division 2A championship game. The Bulldogs are making their first finals appearance since winning it all in 2007. Pasadena rid its two-year dry spell of second-round exits, a notion that’s haunted the Bulldogs the last couple years. Pasadena’s swarming defense was key in returning to the finals, but it also helped that the Bulldogs made giant strides as the season progressed. Turnovers and poor shot selections stymied Pasadena early in the season, particularly in tournament play. The Bulldogs, however, improved as they approached Pacific League play on minimizing turnovers and letting their defense create the offense. By late league season, Pasadena was playing stellar defense and growing comfortable with its new lineup. That’s exactly how Pasadena has won its last three playoff games. Case in point … Mira Costa in the quarterfinals had Pasadena by the ropes as the Bulldogs found themselves trailing at the half for the first time. The third quarter, however, was all Pasadena, Nick Holden hitting a layup at the buzzer to tie the game and help the Bulldogs take complete control in the fourth. The same thing happened last Friday when Pasadena came out hot in the third quarter, thanks to Tyler Barber who hit his first four shot attempts to help the Bulldogs and Chris Bridges making five third-quarter steals to help PHS pull away from a dangerous Keppel team making its first semifinals appearance in school history. There were a couple hundred fans who were kept out of the Keppel-PHS game last Friday. That was bound to happen when a game of that magnitude was played at Muir. “The site served its purpose,” Pasadena coach Tim Tucker said. “It served as an advantage because we’ve played our semifinals there before. The thing about it is that it’s a coin flip. They very well could have won the flip and we would have played wherever they wanted to play the game. We needed to play somewhere where we were comfortable, and Muir was the place.” On a side note … thanks to all of you who clicked on our Keppel-PHS photo gallery.

    Miquel,
    You are killing the blog by not putting up new baseball threads DAILY! Thought you wanted to sell papers and hits? Guess I was wrong.

  • He’s a joke

    Miguel get your act together. He isn’t even respected in his own news room and I quote

    “It just goes to show that if you stay out of the night clubs, don’t look at this as a “job” and keep trying no matter how long the odds are, good things will happen.”

    Remember, like rust, baseball never sleeps.

  • I’m just say’in

    It will be interesting to see how this game plays out. Playing Keppel does not prepare PHS for Eisenhower. If Eisenhower is anything like last year they are a team of athletes that get up and down the court and shoot a lot of 3’s. PHS may have to replace Jolly as I don’t think he’ll be able to keep up. This game will also test the coaching staff at PHS; we will see if Tucker can really coach.

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

I was really skeptical at first, as they were going on about wholegrain pasta, as being rubbish for losing weight but then my mate whose a bit a fitness freak explained how bodybuilders eat pasta to put on mass. Anyways I gave it a try, and it was really good. I managed to lose 2 stone.
