Basketball playoffs continue without Lady Blue Devils

By
February 23, 2011 |

It was a valiant effort, given the tumultuous last half of the Davis High girls basketball season.

But now that the Lady Blue Devils’ campaign is over — after they dropped a first-round decision, 65-51, to Pleasant Grove on Tuesday night at The Cage — an eight-team scramble for the Sac-Joaquin Section D-I title continues Thursday.

DHS finished 20-7 overall and won the DVC at 10-0.

By dispatching Devils, the Eagles (19-10) won the unenviable task of facing No.3 Oak Ridge — the defending CIF champions.

The Trojans, who co-exist with Pleasant Grove in the other-worldy Delta River League, have beaten the Eagles three times in 2010-11. PGHS is 0-5 lifetime against Oak Ridge.

While Eagle coach James McKeever promises his girls won’t be intimidated by their task, the Trojans’ 60-34 victory over Lodi on Tuesday hints at more stormy weather ahead for the Eagles.

Elsewhere in D-I play, Delta Valley Conference runner-up Franklin was beaten 54-50 at Turlock. Top-ranked St. Francis (winners of the powerful DRL) stopped Bear Creek, 68-29, while Armijo — a team Davis defeated in December — routed Merced, 71-34.

Kennedy clobbered Modesto, 51-34. The Cougars won the section title in 2008 and 2009 before falling to Oak Ridge in last year’s finals.

Lincoln (Stockton) also hammered Grace Davis (Modesto), 64-24, on Tuesday and McNair beat Pitman, 64-51.

On Thursday, Armijo is at Turlock, McNair travels to St. Francis and Kennedy is at Lincoln.

Girls semifinals are conducted at the University of Pacific on March 2, with finals on March 5 at Arco Arena.

Wednesday marked the opening of D-I boys action.
