It's likely to be a crowded Foothill Blvd. on Wednesday evening as the La Cañada High and Flintridge Prep's boys' basketball teams host first-round playoff games scheduled for the same 7 p.m. start times.

Consequently, the schools' girls' teams will host their first-round games on Thursday at the same time.
