Devils allow just two Honker FGs

What\’s in the water at Davis High School?

\n

A night after the Blue Devil boys basketball team held Vacaville to only three field goals in a 42-28 victory in a CIF Foundation Game, the Lady Blue Devils limited visiting Yuba City to two buckets in a 67-14 rout at The Cage on Tuesday.

\n

A big difference: the guys game doesn\’t count in the standings, while the girls\’ win opens their regular season in style.

\n

“Our girls all played hard in this one. There was great team chemistry and it was good to see (everyone) get a lot of playing time,” DHS head coach Jeff Christian said, smiling after watching his team hold the Honkers to 2-for-31 shooting.

\n

Christian said he was “proud of the way we didn\’t take advantage of them in a negative way … we try not to look at opponents\’ records and just play our game.”

\n

Yuba City is coming off back-to-back seasons in which it was a combined 5-41. DHS\’ 8-19 campaign last year was nothing to write home about, but on this night the Devils were clearly the better team — and won handily while playing smart basketball.

\n

“We played with discipline, we rotated, we blocked out. It was a really good game for us,” Christian added.

\n

For starters, the Blue Devils dazzled their guests with a 21-0 first-quarter performance.

\n

With Malika and Khaliya Wilkins, Sarah Sadler, Ali Campos and Ashleigh Vandenbrink in the opening lineup, Davis jumped out to an 8-0 lead after steals by Campos and Vandenbrink resulted in each Wilkins sister scoring.

\n

The Devil trap press forced six Honkers miscues in the first 4:04 and by the time Christian had sent in his third wave of reinforcements, the issue was no longer in doubt.

\n

Khaliya and Malika Wilkins each finished the period with seven points and two assists.

\n

Vandenbrink\’s four points and freshman Jordan Banwarth\’s trey completed the eight-minute blitzkrieg.

\n

The second period saw DHS push the lead to 38-6 by intermission. By then, Malika Wilkins had 12 of her game-high 14 points.

\n

Then, after halftime, it was the Vandenbrink-Ali Robertson Show.

\n

Sophomore forward Vandenbrink plucked four rebounds, forced two turnovers and shot 4-for-6 from the floor — all in the third period.

\n

Vandenbrink\’s eight rebounds on the night led all players and she finished with 12 points.

\n

Then in the final period — with the clock running per CIF rules as Davis molded a 40-point lead — junior center Robertson scored six points, pulled in three strong rebounds and made Honker penetrators alter shots.

\n

When the game ended, the locals were 30-of-74 from the field and had turned the ball over only six times.

\n

Meanwhile, Yuba City, under second-year coach Lauren Perez, didn\’t score its first basket (by Alexa Montgomery) until only 3:44 remained in the third period. Montgomery finished with seven points and five rebounds.

\n

Notes: For the second straight night, DHS wore workout jerseys. The team — 16 strong this fall — had to order new uniforms, which still haven\’t arrived. … The Devils beat Vacaville, 56-52, in Monday\’s Foundation Game, charity contest that doesn\’t count in the standings. … The 67 points is most the Lady Blue Devils have scored since they topped Laguna Creek, 69-56, on Feb. 8, 2008. The 53-point margin is the most since Davis beat Valley by 53 (69-16) in January of \’07. Every DHS player took at least two shots. … Tiffany Ho had three steals and an assist. Robertson finished with six rebounds and Brooke Darrah had four caroms and six points. Khaliya Wilkins\’ night ended with nine points, four boards and two assists. … DHS is on the road Thursday for a 7 p.m. meeting at Woodland. The two schools last met Dec. 10, 2002 when DHS nipped the Wolves, 32-26, under then-coach Jim Matthews.
