\n

With Delta Valley Conference play looming on the horizon, the Davis High girls basketball team will try to take another step forward when it meets rugged Benicia in the first round of the Ram Jam Invitational on Monday at Dixon High.

\n

Game time is 9:30 a.m.

\n

In getting a convincing victory over Will C. Wood on Wednesday — the Lady Blue Devils\’ second win over the Wildcats already — DHS won its eighth game of the season, equaling last year\’s win total with at least 15 outings left.

\n

Davis head coach Jeff Christian has been pleased with his team\’s energy and liked what he saw in the 60-45 triumph over Wood.

\n

“But there is a still a lot of hard work ahead of us,” the sixth-year mentor explained. “We are learning something every day.”

\n

With senior Malika Wilkins scoring 13 points per game and her twin sister Khaliya playing the best basketball of her career, the Devils\’ 8-3 start is the second-best in Christian\’s tenure. His 2006-07 squad opened 11-2 (finishing 20-9).

\n

DHS went 1-2 in last year\’s Dixon tournament and will have its hands full with Benicia.

\n

The Panthers are 7-5 and coming off a 49-27 loss to powerhouse Albany (6-1). Benicia is paced by 6-foot-5 senior center Deanna Calhoun, who is averaging 20 ppg and 14 rebounds.

\n

Davis and Benicia have two common opponents in Vintage and Wood. The Panthers are 2-0 in their games with the Crushers (48-45) and Wildcats (56-45), while the Blue Devils are 3-0, having stopped Wood twice and Vintage once (52-46).

\n

After the three-day Ram Jam in Dixon, DHS is next in action on Jan. 6 at St. Francis. Delta Valley Conference play begins on Jan. 11 at Grant. The Pacers, coming off a 7-21 season, are a much-improved bunch at 5-4.
