Bulldogs run away with it

first_imgThe Grizzlies committed 19 turnovers overall, eight of which came in the first eight minutes. “We wanted to be aggressive,” Pasadena guard Trevon Harmon said. “We want to pressure them and force mistakes. We’re a defensive them that looks for turnovers.” While Harmon had two steals to go with 17 points, five rebounds and five assists, his biggest play was a steal against Golden Valley’s Maverick Ahanmisi with 10 seconds left in the second quarter that led to an easy Torey Phillips layup and gave Pasadena a 44-17 halftime advantage. Other then Ajere and Harmon, Phillips (13 points) and teammate Armon Binns (10 points) finished in double digits. One of Pasadena’s strengths Friday night was on the offensive boards. The Bulldogs collected 17 offensive rebounds compared to Golden Valley’s 10. “I’ve been looking forward to the second round for a long time,” Tucker said. “It seems like it’s taken forever to get there. We have some demons to get over.” The top-ranked Bulldogs also entered last year’s Division I-A first round as the No. 1 seed only to get bounced 64-62 to unheralded Perris. “I’ve been replaying that game in my mind for a long time,” Tucker said. “It left a sour taste in my mouth for quite some time. I’m looking forward to getting rid of that taste on Tuesday. We’ll be ready.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But more than anything, Friday night’s CIF-Southern Section Division II-AA first-round boys basketball playoff game between host Pasadena High School and Golden Valley was difficult to define. By the end, the top-seeded Bulldogs wound up with a 70-39 victory over the Grizzlies. “I thought we played a strong game defensively,” Pasadena coach Tim Tucker said. “Offensively, we were phenomenal.” Four Bulldogs scored in double digits, with Nigel Ajere leading the way. It was the Bulldogs’ senior center who helped Pasadena kick-start its offense. Down 6-4 after a Kyle McAfee 3-pointer with 5:10 left in the first quarter, Ajere scored eight of his game-high 18 points as the Bulldogs responded to their only deficit of the game with a 15-0 run. Ajere capped the run with a thunderous two-handed dunk after picking off an errant Grizzlies pass at half court. The jam earned him loud applause from the crowd and an eventual technical foul for hanging on the rim. Pasadena, which led 21-7 after the first quarter, never allowed Golden Valley (13-15) to get comfortable. center_img The victory sends Pasadena into a second-round matchup Tuesday against Chaffey (15-6) at 7:30 p.m. A coin-flip today at 9 a.m. will determine which team will host the second-round game. last_img read more
