DHS dances past Wolves

WOODLAND — It was a cold night. Ice cold if you were shooting for the Woodland Wolves.

\n

It was a rainy night. Pouring if you were shooting threes (9-of-17) for the Davis High girls basketball team.

\n

In the first meeting in eight years between the two Yolo County rivals, the Lady Blue Devils came away with a 66-24 victory and again hinted at brilliance with a dominant first-half performance. The Thursday game drew only 60 fans on a drizzly, bitter evening.

\n

“That was a great first half … lots of energy,” DHS head coach Jeff Christian said after his team ran its record to 2-0. “But we\’re a young team. We\’re still trying to learn to play a complete game. I never coach against the scoreboard.”

\n

The Devils, sporting a starting lineup of Khaliya and Malika Wilkins, Sarah Sadler, Ashleigh Vandenbrink and Ali Campos, soared to a 30-7 lead after one period. It was the most points scored by DHS in a quarter since a 30-point second period against Wood on Feb. 2, 2005.

\n

Malika Wilkins was a wrecking ball.

\n

Scoring 14 of her game-high 16 points in the quarter, Wilkins scored eight points in period\’s final 75 seconds.

\n

After two games, Wilkins is 12-for-19 shooting, has scored 30 points and generally spends the second half of games on the bench — with her sister Khaliya — as Davis has posted two blow-out victories over Woodland and Yuba City.

\n

Khaliya Wilkins is off to an almost as devastating a start (to opponents). She\’s 6-of-11 with 17 points and seven steals, also in monitored playing time.

\n

Christian\’s team again led by more than 40 points late — triggering the CIF\’s running-clock rule while he tried different combinations with his deep bench of 16.

\n

The result was mixed as the Blue Devils and Wolves spent a lot of the second half scrambling for loose balls. While not crisp, the final 16 minutes were efficient as DHS outscored Woodland, 21-12, after the break.

\n

Sara Sousa canned seven points off the bench for the Devils and freshman guard Jordan Banwarth netted a couple of 3-point buckets for her six points. Chrysten Santos, in extended playing time at guard, corralled four rebounds, had two assists, two steals and buried a trey.

\n

Sophomore forward Vandenbrink continued to play strong inside, booking nine points on 3-of-4 both in the field and at the line. In two games, the varsity newcomer has 20 points and proven she\’s not intimidated by her new surroundings.

\n

Campos\’ two assists paid big dividends as they resulted in 3-pointers from teammates.

\n

Woodland (1-2) — which beat San Juan on Wednesday night, 37-32, as Cassie McLaughlin\’s six free throws down the stretch sealed the deal — again turned to their senior center. McLaughlin had 10 points and six boards. Miranda Rumsey sparked a 5-0 Woodland run in the third period with two rebounds, a steal and two free throws. Rumsey finished with nine points.

\n

DHS has some time off before hosting the Dorothy Speck Memorial Tournament next Thursday through Dec. 11.

\n

Notes: Woodland is under the direction of first-year coach John Hardwick. … The Devils outrebounded the Wolves, 43-22, and was 9-for-16 at the line. … “To beat good teams, we\’ll have to play complete games,” Christian concluded after his team coughed up the ball nine times in the second half and had 15 miscues in all. … Woodland travels next to Antelope for a Wednesday contest. … It\’s probably the last time this season fans will see the Lady Blue Devils playing in practice pennies. Christian says there weren\’t enough “old uniforms to go around” with 16 players on the roster. New outfits have been ordered — and the locals have a week for UPS to show up.
