Bell Jeff 71, Flintridge Prep 51--Seniors Mike Yildiz and Carlos Arroyo combined for 42 points and 25 rebounds to pace No. 4 ranked Bell-Jeff past visiting Flintridge Prep in a third-round game. Flintridge surprised the host Guards (23-6) by taking an early 12-4 advantage. Bell-Jeff coach Eli Essa switched the Guards from a tentative matchup zone to an aggressive man-to-man, and the team responded with a 27-7 run over the rest of the first half. Yildiz and Arroyo put the game away in the second half by scoring 16 of the Guards' next 18 points to post a 46-28 lead. Yildiz finished with 20 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists while Arroyo had 22 points and 15 boards.Flintridge Prep (15-11) was led by guard Devin Brown with 17 points and center Ben Kroop's 12 points. From the outset, Flintridge Prep attempted to curb scoring by controlling the clock with its half-court game. The Rebels straddled the 3-point arc, taking the shot clock down to less than seven seconds on their first four possessions. Early success around the perimeter produced an early Flintridge Prep lead. A 3-pointer by Devin Brown (17 points) gave the Rebels (15-11) a 12-4 lead.  But Bell-Jeff responded.  Spurred on by the inside play of Carlos Arroyo and the versatile game of Mike Yildiz, the Guards came back with an 11-0 run. The duo, which scored all of Bell-Jeff's first-quarter points, connected with 1:18 left in the period when Yildiz found Arroyo in the paint for a bank shot that gave Bell-Jeff a 13-12 lead.  The Rebels never led again.  In the second quarter, Bell-Jeff (23-6) opened up the court, finding points from baskets by five different players.  Casey Markovic Jr., who finished with nine points and nailed a 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter, found his mark from the outside, freeing up the interior for Arroyo and Andy Bunning (six points).   Defensively, the Guards broke down the Flintridge Prep offense. They held the Rebels to five second-quarter points, forcing bad shots and scaling away Flintridge Prep's composure.  Yildiz, who led the Guards on both sides of the court, snatched the ball from the Rebels twice in the quarter, collecting four steals on the night.   Bell-Jeff, which took a 12-point lead into halftime, extended its lead to 21 points in the fourth quarterwhen Markovic nailed a 3-pointer at the six-minute mark.
