LA North, LA South, IE and OC: First round boys basketball playoff results
By Tim Haddock
The Golden League is proving to be the giant killers of the CIF Southern Section boys basketball playoffs. Knight is one of four teams from the Golden League to oust seeded teams in the first round of the playoffs. The Eagles upset Los Osos, the No. 16 seed, in the Division 1AA playoffs.
Palmdale squeaked past No. 11 Vista Murrieta by one point in the Division 1A playoffs.
Quartz Hill, an at-large team, beat seventh-seeded Crescenta Valley in the first round of the Division 1A bracket.
Eastside might have pulled off the most stunning win of the playoffs thus far, beating fourth-seeded Glendora in overtime in the Division 2A playoffs.
Maybe there’s something in the water, or perhaps the sand, in the high desert. Mojave, the fourth-place team out of the Desert Mountain League, beat sixth-seeded Temecula Prep, in the first round of the Division 6AA playoffs.
