• Pacifica Christian High School’s boys basketball team continues its impressive playoff run against Tarbut V’Torah in the semifinals of the CIF-SS Division VI-AA playoffs today at Culver City High School. The Seawolves are the no.3 seed team in the division. Pacifica Christian qualified for the semifinals by defeating Capistrano Valley Christian, 64-38 on Tuesday.
Cameron Bell, Pacifica Christian’s primary post presence, expects the game to test his squad’s resolve.
“We’re going to have to keep our heads,” Bell said during practice earlier this week. “We just have to stay calm and collected.”
While the Seawolves rely on an up-tempo style of play, Bell thinks the game will be decided in the post.
“We have to physically take it for ourselves,” the senior said. “We have to show (Tarbut V’Torah) who has worked harder and who wants it more.”
