DHS girls escape with win, await playoff matchup

SACRAMENTO — Though it was an ugly outing and Davis High girls basketball coach Karen Foster would have liked to see her team make better adjustments to the tightly called contest, the Lady Blue Devils finished their regular season with a 60-46 win at Grant on Tuesday night.

DHS (17-9, 7-3) escaped injury-free and looks forward to finding out when and where it will open the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs. The seedings will be announced Wednesday evening and the Devils’ first-round game could be as early as Friday.

On Tuesday, the locals made 13-of-16 free throws in the fourth quarter to outscore the Pacers (11-13, 3-7) by a 22-9 margin and break open a close game. In the contest, which saw fouls called in bunches against both teams, the hosts made just 11-for-33 from the charity stripe while Davis was 18-of-24.

“We committed a lot of fouls,” Foster said. “I can actually understand why, because the last five or six games have been so brutal and they aren’t calling anything, but then (Tuesday) they were calling everything.

“It was nice to see us make those free throws in the fourth quarter. That was really the difference.”

In winning their season finale, the Lady Blue Devils got 15 points from junior Katie Grahn. 14 from sophomore Rachael Allison and yet another double-double (13 points, 12 rebounds) from junior Emma Stenz.

Allison grabbed eight boards, as did sophomore Sophie Seng, who scored 9 points, all from the foul line.

“Sophie is really on fire right now and playing great defense,” said Foster, who also praised the steady play of freshman Alyssa Lengtat.

Recent JV call-up Lengtat had 6 points on Tuesday and junior Caitlin Mazzoleni hit a trey to complete the DHS scoring. Sophomore floor general Anna Belenis had six assists.

Despite the strong play in certain areas, Foster saw a lot that her team needs to work on in the next few days of practice.

“We have to make some adjustments and do a better job of attacking when our shots aren’t falling,” the third-year coach explained. “You aren’t always going to have the hot hand and that’s when you have to attack the basket.”
