ROSEMONT — “This was a good game in preparation for league. We rebounded and shot better, and I thought we passed really well,” said a smiling interim coach Dennis Foster as the Davis High girls basketball team won its last nonconference game of the regular season, going on the road to beat Rosemont, 61-46.

\n

Opening quickly, the Lady Blue Devils went on a early 11-2 run as seniors Khaliya and Malika Wilkins penetrated and center Sarah Sadler cleaned house on the boards.

\n

In the period, which ended 15-6 in DHS\’ favor, Malika Wilkins had six points and two rebounds, while sister Khaliya scored four, had two steals and a couple of caroms. Meanwhile, Sadler — another senior — had six rebounds and an assist.

\n

It was a sign of things to come as the locals got 21 points from Khaliya Wilkins for the game and an additional 14 from Malika Wilkins.

\n

“We made some adjustments at halftime,” Foster continued, alluding to a trap press that, when it worked, was devastating and, when it didn\’t, allowed seven simple Wolverine layups. “We\’re going to make some more adjustments. The trap has to be a good one … don\’t let their player split it. If they do, there\’s those easy baskets.”

\n

Leading 29-19 at the break, Davis poured in 12 straight points at the start of the third period to get its biggest lead.

\n

The onslaught was fueled by Khaliya Wilkins (six points), Malika Wilkins (four) and an Ali Campos jumper.

\n

Sophomore forward Ashleigh Vandenbrink found the range late, scoring nine points in the final 10 minutes and finished the night with seven rebounds and three assists. Her 15 points were a personal season high.

\n

Relentless in the paint, DHS outrebounded Rosemont, 54-22. Khaliya Wilkins\’ 11 rebounds led the Blue Devils and Sadler ended up with eight boards.

\n

After DHS rolled to its 41-19 lead, Foster began using different combinations. The action on the court was end-to-end and the Wolverines crawled to within 10 points on three occasions. But each time, the Devils managed to stave off Rosemont with a slick defensive play or by going inside to Vandenbrink.

\n

Briana Hubbard, the Wolverines\’ 5-foot-11 swingman, kept the contest from being a blowout by scoring 21 points and snaring 11 rebounds.

\n

Rosemont fell to 2-9, while Davis upped its mark to 10-6 heading into Tuesday\’s Delta Valley

\n

Conference opener on the road at Grant (7 p.m.). The Pacers, who along with Monterey Trail,

\n

replaced Valley and Kennedy in league realignment, come into the first DVC contest with a 9-5 mark.

\n

Notes: In Thursday\’s Davis Enterprise “DHS Girls Get Good Grades Amid Turmoil,” it was

\n

misstated that freshman players Jordan Banwarth and Capriana Christian moved from varsity to junior varsity for “additional playing time.” The move was a personal choice by the girls, according to JV coach Karen Foster. The Enterprise regrets the error. … Campos finished with

\n

six points and three assists on Saturday, each of the Wilkins twins had four assists and Sadler was an immovable object in the paint during her 19 minutes on the court. … Sadler had three points and Tori Powell one, to round out the Devil scoring.
