EL DORADO HILLS — Despite salvaging a victory in Saturday’s tournament finale, the Davis High girls basketball team found out that poor shooting and too many turnovers is a bad combination.

The Lady Blue Devils improved to 4-3 on the season by blowing out El Dorado on Saturday, but their first two performances in the Oak Ridge Tournament — losses to West Campus and the host Trojans (56-41 on Friday) — left something to be desired for coach Karen Foster.

“Our shooting was off and (when that happens) we have to find a way to stay tough,” the third-year mentor said. “Games are going to be physical and we have to play through it.”

Still, there were bright spots for the weekend, most notably junior Emma Stenz, who was named to the all-tournament team following DHS’ 57-31 win over El Dorado.

Stenz had her third big game in as many days, leading the Devils with 18 points and seven rebounds. She scored 19 and added 13 boards on Friday.

Also playing well for the locals on Saturday were Caitlin Mazzoleni — who scored 12 points after posting 10 on Friday — and point guard Anna Belenis.

“What she does doesn’t always show up in the stats, but she handles the ball and handles the pressure all the time,” Foster said of Belenis. “She started last year as a freshman and now, as a sophomore, she is playing great. She gets us into all of our sets, all of our offense, and she plays great defense.”

In Saturday’s victory, the Lady Blue Devils took control early and led 38-4 at intermission. Sophie Seng — back from illness — scored six points for Davis, Katie Grahn and Ariane Rusanganwa added five apiece while Rachael Allison and Belenis each put in four.

But even in such a dominating win, Foster was concerned about her team’s 19 turnovers and wants to see even better rebounding, especially on the offensive end:

“We have to rebound and we have been committing way too many turnovers. We’ve been averaging more turnovers than assists and that is a stat I would like to see change.”

Improved play in those areas will be a must as the Devils enter their busiest week of the season beginning Monday with a home game (7 p.m.) against Rosemont. DHS then hosts Pioneer on Wednesday, before playing Thursday through Saturday at the always-tough Napa Tournament.

“This is a mature team with a lot of experience, so I know we will be all right,” Foster said.
