No lack for drama in D-II boys bracket In a Division II boys semifinal, the top-seeded Chargers trailed from the middle of the first quarter until less than two minutes were left against No. 4 Leigh before pulling out a 57-54 victory at Gunn High. “The game was very physical. Both teams battled,” Leland coach Mitch Shapero said. Leland will face No. 3 Mountain View in Saturday’s final at 6 p.m. at Santa Clara High School. The Spartans were pushed to double-overtime in an 80-75 thriller against No. 7 Aragon. (More to come.) In Leland’s semifinal win, the score was tied late in the game when Shane McKnight sank a basket and Sohan Kshirsagar connected on two free throws for a four-point Chargers lead. But Leigh’s Dylan Johnston converted an and-1, and the Longhorns trailed by just a point. However, Kshirsagar was fouled with 12 seconds left and converted both his free throws. Leigh was then unable to sink a 3-pointer to tie the score. Kshirsagar led all scorers with 21 points, and McKnight added 14 in the win. Leigh was paced by Johnston with 11 points, and teammate Luka Kise added 10. Leigh handed Leland one of its two losses this season, 73-70 on Jan. 16. But the Chargers avenged that loss with a 72-53 win on Feb. 6. Return trip Piedmont Hills has reached the Division I boys championship game for the second year in a row after outlasting Cupertino 45-41 in Thursday’s semifinals at Fremont High in Sunnyvale. The top-seeded Pirates trailed No. 4 Cupertino 35-34 in the third quarter, but a 7-0 run gave Piedmont Hills the lead for good. Calaphas Ardoin started the run with a 3-pointer, followed by baskets from Andrew Le and Alijah Washington. Cupertino rallied to trail by just two at 43-41, but a pair of free throws by Ardoin ice the win. Piedmont Hills fell 75-58 to Los Gatos in last year’s Division I final. Third-seeded Palo Alto will host the title game Saturday at 8 p.m. after a 62-47 triumph over No. 2 Carlmont, which got a team-high 18 points from point guard Lajuan Nelson. It wasn’t enough to offset a double-double from Paly’s Marvin Zou (15 points, 10 rebounds), along with a near-miss from teammate Jackson Chryst (15 points, 9 rebounds). The Vikings, a NorCal Division I runner-up last year, went on a 15-2 run to close out the first half and never looked back after taking a 31-24 lead into the locker room. Title hungry Lynbrook’s girls basketball team has not won a CCS title since 2014. Aragon reached the Division II championship game last year, but has never won a CCS girls basketball title in its history. So both teams will be plenty motivated when they meet on Saturday at 4 p.m. at Santa Clara High for this year’s Division II championship game. Lynbrook, the No. 4 seed, knocked off top-seed Wilcox 49-48 in a semifinal Thursday. The Vikings have a 13-game winning streak dating back to Dec. 29 (a 73-36 loss to Menlo).  Aragon, the No. 2 seed, defeated No. 3 Leland 58-46 in the other semifinal.In Aragon’s win, the Dons took a 15-8 lead in the first quarter and held a 43-34 lead at the end of the third quarter. Back for more The top-seeded Woodside Priory girls basketball team will try to make it three CCS titles in a row Saturday at noon in Palo Alto in the Division V championship game. In a rematch of last year’s final, the Panthers knocked off No. 4 Castilleja by a score of 69-48. Priory was led by junior Lala Niu (14 points, 5 rebounds), while UC Santa Barbara-bound center Ila Lane added 13 points and sophomore transfer Aniyah Augmon finished with 12 points and seven rebounds. “Lala Niu stepped up big time,” Priory coach Buck Matthews said. “Her best game of the season.” Last year’s CIF state Division IV runner-up will meet No. 2 Notre Dame-Salinas in the final.

Sibylline Oracles Hellenistic Judaism’s Usage The Sibylline Oracles had a long lineage going back even to the Greek oracles of Delphi. Hellenistic Judaism had adapted some of them as apologetic “prophecies,” which were a sort of bridge-building evangelistic literature directed at a Greek audience. They actually were a literary production in Greek Hexameter. Christian “Sibylline” […]
