Both teams now prepare for CIF Southern Section Playoff games this Wednesday and Thursday, February 14 - 15.
The Centaur boys will host Glendale High on Wednesday night and the girls will host Crossroads High on Thursday night in Del Goodyear Gymnasium. Both games start at 7:00 p.m. The boys (16-9 overall) are seeded No. 2 in the 32-team Division 3A tournament bracket against the Glendale Nitros (18-9 overall) with the winner advancing to Friday's second round.
The Culver girls (21-5 overall) are seeded No. 4 in the Division 3AA bracket against the formidable Crossroads (15-10 overall) squad from Santa Monica that happens to feature NBA great Shaquille O'Neal's daughter on its roster.
