Mamadou Ndiaye stands head and shoulders - sometimes a foot, even half a torso - above most players on the court. Literally. In two weeks, the 7-foot-5 junior - believed to be the tallest high school player in the country - could be standing tall at center court with his Brethren Christian teammates. Brethren Christian, which last week captured its fourth straight Academy League championship in boys' basketball, is in the CIF Southern Section Division 5AA playoffs this week.

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.

There may be a changing of the guard when it comes to naming the 2014 Academy League champion in boys' basketball in the coming week. The league lead was on the line in the past week when two league undefeated teams, Brethren Christian and St. Margaret's, met twice over a six-day period. In both instances, defending champion BC took a hit in its armor by the Tartans. The Warriors, who have won the last five Academy titles, dropped the first game, 75-59, on Jan. 30. Tuesday at St. Margaret's, the Tartans followed that win with a 71-51 victory that gave them a two-game edge in the league standings heading into the final week of the regular season.

When you look at the 2013 Brethren Christian High football roster, the tangibles are present for what could be a big season. BC Coach Pat McInally shares those sentiments. It'd be hard not to, what with 17 returning starters back from last year's six-win team that made the CIF Southern Section playoffs. "If we stay healthy, I think we can be a great team," McInally said. "We have a great group of talented players, many from a great JV team we had two years ago that was dominant.
