February 27, 2013 |  9:10 am

Taft fans who like to show up to games dressed in red and waving a big photo of star guard Kris Yanku will get another game.

The Toreadors knocked off University, 83-77, in overtime on Tuesday in a City Section Division I state play-in game and will play Narbonne on Thursday night at Roybal for a possible berth in the state playoffs.

Yanku scored 24 points. Arvis Greene had 27 points for University and Morris Ravis added 21.

Narbonne defeated Fairfax, 74-71. Reggie Theus Jr. had 21 points for Fairfax. Jonathan Nichols led Narbonne with 24 points.

Correction: An earlier version of this blog incorrectly reported Taft would host Narbonne. The game is at Roybal.
