For the fourth time in the last three seasons, Carondelet’s basketball team will face Pinole Valley in the playoffs. The Cougars visit the Spartans tonight at 8 p.m in the North Coast Section Division II semifinal. The last meeting between the two came in the Northern Regional championship game last season, which Carondelet won. The two prior meetings came in the NCS title game, both won by the Cougars. Our photo department will cover the event and create a slide show with audio of all the action, with sounds and images (pictures that won’t make print that capture the atmosphere) that can only be seen and heard on ContraCostaTimes.com. Look out for the slide show on Thursday and let us know what you think.
