Lady Blue Devils get Pleasant Grove

By
February 20, 2011 |

It’s official… Pleasant Grove comes to town on Tuesday for a first-round Sac-Joaquin playoff showdown with the Lady Blue Devils.

The Eagles (17-10 overall) finished third in the rugged Delta River League and come to Davis fresh off a 73-56 loss to No. 1 St. Francis (Davis lost to the Troubadours, 75-51, on Jan. 6 — the locals’ last setback).

DHS — given the sixth seed in the 16-team tournament — banged out a 20-6 mark while winning the Delta Valley Conference with a perfect 10-0 run.

Game time Tuesday is 7 p.m. in The Cage (south gym on campus). Interim coach and athletic director Dennis Foster says the 450-seat facility will be crowded and he recommends that fans get there early.

Doors open at 6 p.m.

Pleasant Grove, which finished behind the top-ranked Troubadours and No. 3 Oak Ridge in conference, is led by a pair of board-banging frontliners, 6-foot-2 senior Melissa Norman and 5-foot-10 sophomore Dejza James.

Norman and James are averaging about eight rebounds a game while James hits for 11 points a night. Norman, a co-captain, averages just under 10 ppg.

Two other Eagles — Marissa Wimbley (11.4) and Avonna Lee (10.2) — are scoring in double digits.

Davis, on an 11-game win streak, counters with its Dynamic Duo — Khaliya and Malika Wilkins. Adding to the Blue Devil charge are sophomore forward Ashleigh Vandenbrink, hard-nosed senior center Sarah Sadler and defensively strong sophomore guard Ali Campos.

As has been the case throughout Davis’ recent run, up-tempo offense will challenge a patient, taller Pleasant Grove.

Franklin, the second-place team in the DVC, travels to play No. 4 Turlock and St. Francis, the tournament’s top seed, hosts Bear Creek.

Should Davis advance, it will meet the winner of Oak Ridge (No. 3) vs. Lodi (No. 14) on Thursday. Highest-seeded winner will get the home game.

Also in the Lady Blue Devils’ bracket are No. 2 Lincoln (Stockton), Grace Davis, Pitman and Kennedy.
