• Photo Gallery: Pasadena vs. Chaffey ONTARIO – While achieving the ultimate goal of winning a CIF-Southern Section Division II-AA championship still might be in the distance, the Pasadena High School boys basketball team took care of some important issues on Tuesday in its second-round playoff game against host Chaffey. The Bulldogs, still carrying the bitter memory of a 64-62 loss at Perris in the second round a year ago, looked and played like they were on a mission. Harmon found Nigel Ajere for a pair of early layups to get Pasadena on the board and it virtually was a layup drill for the Bulldogs from there. “Our seniors stepped up big, and we came out with a good win,” said Harmon, who grabbed five rebounds and had a team-high eight assists. Twelve of the Pasadena’s first 15 baskets came on open layups as the Bulldogs built a 31-12 lead midway through the second quarter. Pasadena’s defense suffocated Chaffey and allowed just two field goals in the first half, both in the second quarter, to give the Bulldogs a commanding 40-13 halftime lead. The No. 1-seeded Bulldogs accomplished what they couldn’t do a year ago – advance to the quarterfinals. Pasadena used a one-two punch of Torey Phillips, who scored 24 points, and Trevon Harmon, who had 22, to pummel the stunned Tigers 77-44 and send Pasadena (27-2) to the next round, where on Friday it will host Cajon, a winner over Fullerton. “All week we’ve been talking about how we went on the road and lost a year ago, so I thought we were really focused, came out and played good defense and set the tone on how we were going to play,” Pasadena coach Tim Tucker said. “I think the game was over in the first half.” Of Pasadena’s 33 field goals, 24 were layups. “Trevon Harmon,” Tucker said, “what can you say about him? This kid is picking defenses apart with his passes.” Ajere added 11 points and five rebounds for the Bulldogs. Chaffey (18-7) opened the second half with a 9-2 run to cut Pasadena’s lead to 42-22, but the Bulldogs continued to create easy scoring opportunities. “We kind of let them back in it, but we’re playing at another level right now and we just hope to keep going,” Tucker said. Phillips cashed in on those chances with 16 second-half points to squash any thoughts of a Tigers comeback. “It’s a big relief off our shoulders after falling to Perris last year,” Phillips said. “We just wanted to come out here, play hard and get that monkey off our back.” [email protected] (626) 962-8811, Ext. 4456 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
