Boys Basketball: St. Ignatius takes down Santa Cruz to advance to Sand Dune final

By Matthew Snyder

Heading into Saturday night’s tournament semifinal against St. Ignatius in the Sand Dune Classic, Santa Cruz head boys basketball coach Patrick Jones wanted to negate junior forward Julian Marcu’s influence on the offensive end.

The Cardinals held a foul-ridden Marcu to four points, but they couldn’t contain St. Ignatius’ talented guards – particularly junior Trevor Dunbar – who propelled the Wildcats to a 69-45 win.


Girls Basketball: Lowell ousts Pinewood in Sand Dune semifinal

By Zack Farmer

Scoring 15 points in the first half of a high school basketball game usually isn’t a good thing, but when it’s five points more than the opposition, it feels a bit better.

The Lowell girls basketball team held Pinewood to 10 first-half points and turned on the offense in the third quarter en route to a 44-27 win in the semifinal round of the Sand Dune Classic on Friday at St. Ignatius.

Boys Basketball: St. Ignatius surges late to take down Burlingame in Sand Dune

By John Baker

When deciding who to schedule in its opening game of the Sand Dune Classic, the St. Ignatius boys basketball team had a dilemma – pick an easy opponent to improve its chances of getting into the championship game or a tough one to harden them for the rigors ahead.

When the opener came around Thursday, it seemed tournament host took the latter road.

In an exciting matchup with perennial Central Coast Section contender Burlingame, the Wildcats built a big lead, lost it with just over 5 minutes left, then went on a strong run to beat the Panthers 59-54.

Games of the Day – Galileo vs. Pinewood girls basketball: The Lions have dominated local competition since a two-point loss to International in their second game of the season and will kick off the Sand Dune Classic with the perennial CCS Division V power for the third season in a row. St. Ignatius vs. Burlingame boys basketball: The Wildcats start the Sand Dune with a pretty good measuring stick for what could be ahead in WCAL play. The Panthers have played four WCAL opponents this season. Bellarmine, Serra and Riordan have blown Burlingame out, but the Panthers beat Valley Christian. The result and margin could be telling for St. Ignatius. For live updates on these games, follow us on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/SanFranPreps.
