Brian Ballew said he is unaccustomed to playing the hero, but the Hart High forward sure looked like a veteran in the role Wednesday night. The 6-foot-2 senior scored seven of his 17 points in the final two minutes, including a three-pointer with two seconds to play that gave the Indians a 55-52 victory over Palmdale in the semifinals of the 22nd Hart Holiday Classic. The defeat snapped a nine-game winning streak for the Falcons (9-2).

Muir High School has had one of the top boys basketball teams in the San Gabriel Valley in recent years, but you couldn't judge by the Mustangs' performances in CIF playoffs. Muir lost in the first round to Santa Monica in 1984 and in the second round to Newport Harbor last year. The Mustangs, seeded No. 3 in the 4-A Division with a 24-2 record, are hoping to last longer this time. The first step will be a victory over Warren in the opening round at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Altadena.

Ganesha High, top-ranked basketball team in the CIF 3-A Division, has coasted through its Hacienda League schedule with as little difficulty as its 13-0 league record might attest. The only thing separating Ganesha (23-1 overall) from finishing with a perfect league record is a game with rival Bonita at 7 p.m. Friday in La Verne. Considering how Bonita has played lately, winning may not be easy for Ganesha.
