Despite double-doubles from Michael Anekwe and Felix White, Besant Hill School’s boys’ basketball team lost in the quarterfinals of the CIF-Sothern Section Division VI playoffs Tuesday at The Thacher School.
No. 2-seeded Hesperia Christian eliminated the Coyotes, 50-40, overcoming a significant size disadvantage with a suffocating full court press that forced Besant Hill into a season-high 39 turnovers.
