GLENDALE — The free throws kept coming and Glendale High School dropped in all but four in the fourth quarter en route to a 65-55 foul-fueled victory over visiting Pasadena in a Pacific League game on Friday night.
“I practice them every day in the gym for hours,” said Glendale’s Bobby Ekimyan, who made nine of 10 foul shots in the quarter, hitting seven of them in a two-second stretch. “It feels natural; normal.”
Glendale made 20 of 24 free throws in the quarter to repel all of the late frenzied Pasadena rallies.
“It was really physical,” longtime Glendale coach Steve Snodgress said. “It seemed in the second half that both teams were marching to the free-throw line. We had to hit enough of them to survive. In that second half, both teams did not give it an inch. That made it a free-throw game.”
