It’s easy to look at tonight’s CIF State Division IV second-round boys basketball playoff game between Central Valley Christian of Visalia and La Verne Lutheran High School as anything other than a battle of two Pacific-12 Conference-bound standouts.
Central Valley Christian is led by 6-foot-8 forward Grant Verhoeven, who will play at Stanford next season. Lutheran, of course, features 6-10 forward Grant Jerrett, who will play at Arizona.
They figure to put on quite a show tonight at the University of La Verne. Tipoff is 7 p.m.
