Van Nuys took an early 12-point lead and rolled to a 55-48 victory in a Boys City 3-A quarterfinal playoff game at Van Nuys.
Senior guard Pat Meyer led the Wolves with 16 points.
The game marked the end of Birmingham Coach Jim O'Hara's 30-year coaching career.
Said O'Hara: "It feels fine. It was a great season. But I'm glad it's over. Thirty years is a long time.
"The difference was, we didn't shoot well. They packed it in on us, and we couldn't hit from the outside. We've had a problem with that all year."
Birmingham was led by Benny Carrasco with 14 points.
Van Nuys plays Marshall in the semifinals Friday night.
