In its quest for a City Section 4-A championship, the Grant High boys' basketball team entered the lions' den Wednesday night--and there the quest ended. Top-seeded Crenshaw routed the Lancers, 75-61, in a second-round playoff game. Grant never led and never really threatened after a 14-14 tie in the first quarter. The Lancers instead committed 18 turnovers and did not look comfortable trying to compete with the two-time defending City and State champions.
