It’s a tall order, with Pleasant Grove sporting three frontline players bigger than Davis High’s inside duo of Sarah Sadler and Ashleigh Vandenbrink.

But the Davis High girls have filled the bill time after time against squads of superior height.

So when Lady Blue Devils host the Eagles tonight at 7 p.m. in the first round of the Sac-Joaquin Section basketball playoffs, DHS interim coach Dennis Foster hopes his girls’ 11-game winning streak continues.

“I have seen them on film. Pleasant Grove is well-rounded, they have a few guards that can handle the ball and a good post player,” Foster said. “We will be in for a challenge.”

Based on what’s gone on before, Davis is up to a good challenge.

The Devils (20-6) just romped through the Delta Valley Conference at 10-0. Pleasant Grove (17-10) finished third in the deep Delta River League.

Those guards Foster talks about are Marissa Wimbley and Avonna Lee, both averaging over 10 ppg. The post player is 6-foot-2 Melissa Norman.

So, knowing what’s at hand, will DHS make adjustments?

“We focus more on making the other team adjust to what we do … and our in-game adjustments,” Foster says.

Everybody reported to Monday’s morning practice healthy and Foster expects another good game as he will leaves the Blue Devils at the end of the season with what he calls: “A special conference season and … a positive legacy for the program in the future.”

The game will be played in The Cage (south gym) with doors opening at 6 p.m. Foster said he expects the “place to be packed.” Admission is $8 general, $5 for children under 12.
