L.A. Baptist earned a first-round bye in the Div. V-A bracket and will host either Mesrobian of Pico Rivera or San Gabriel Academy in the second round at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The Knights (17-6) are led by Andreanna Marshall, who averaged an area-best 26.3 points per game. Five Marmonte League teams were selected to the Div. I-AA bracket, but none are expected to seriously contend for a title in the Southern Section’s toughest division. No. 10-seed Moorpark (23-3), No. 11 Newbury Park (19-7) and No. 13 Royal of Simi Valley (21-5) will be favored in Saturday’s first-round games. Flintridge Prep of La Canada Flintridge (Div. IV-A) and Village Christian of Sun Valley (Div.V-AA) received No. 2 seeds and figure to contend for division titles. email@example.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Britney Fitchpatrick and Amanda Adjari add an experienced backcourt for Hart, the Daily News’ top-ranked team, which will host either Poly of Riverside or Glendale in the first round at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The Indians will be heavily favored until the quarterfinals Feb.24, when they could potentially face No. 5-seed Mira Costa of Manhattan Beach (20-6). Mira Costa beat Hart 46-45 on Dec. 27. The Southern Section girls’ basketball playoff pairings created little surprise Sunday, as Hart of Newhall and L.A. Baptist were the local schools to earn top seeds, and several others earned favorable spots. Hart earned the distinction in Div.I-A after winning its sixth consecutive Foothill League title earlier this season. The Indians (24-2) are the defending Div. I-A champion, and they have one of the most dominant front lines in the state with Tatianna Thomas, Megan Ford and KaLana Inemer.
