HUNTINGTON BEACH - All week long at practice, the Sage Hill School boys' basketball team had worked on a game-plan that had to do with stopping, well, attempting to contain, perhaps, Brethren Christian's Mamadou Ndiaye. When the Lightning arrived Friday at Ocean View High for their Academy League encounter with the Warriors, it was then that Coach Jeff Beeler learned that BC's star 7-foot-5 center didn't suit up for the game. The UC Irvine signee, he was told, was out with the flu. Ndiaye, who is averaging 25 points and 13 rebounds a game, hadn't practiced all week due to illness, Brethren Christian Coach Jon Bahnsen said.
