Boys' basketball: Taft won't have Renaissance transfer
De'Andre Daniels, a 6-foot-8 transfer from La Canada Renaissance Academy, has been denied a hardship waiver by the City Section after transferring to Taft, according to Athletic Director Mark Drucker.
Daniels played as a sophomore last season at Renaissance, which made it to the state Division V championship game. He can appeal to an appeal panel.
Taft also is awaiting word on Bryce Jones, a transfer from View Park Prep. Neither player will be available today when Taft opens the season in the Westchester tournament.
