LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Offense has been an area of concern for the La Can¿ada High boys' basketball team this season.
That continued through the first half Friday when the Spartans hosted Garden Grove's Pacifica in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division III-AA playoffs.
La Can¿ada ended up putting together what Coach Tom Hofman referred to as one of its best offensive performances this season with a strong second half to pick up a 66-45 victory.
"This is what we were looking for all year, this was a good team victory," said Hofman, whose team scored 21 points in the first half and 45 in the second for a season-high 66 points. "We had a nice balance, everybody was contributing to the offense."
The entire starting five for the Spartans scored at least nine points with senior point guard Ryan Lee leading the way with 15. Darrell Dansby finished with 14, Conner Boyd scored 12, Tim Kim had 10 and Jay Srinivasan added nine.
