NCS BASKETBALL DIV 4-6 RECAP: GOING TO SCRIPT
Saturday night belonged to the home teams. Actually locally the whole weekend belonged to the home teams. There were fifteen games involving local teams in Round Two and the home team went 14-1.
Montgomery fans have to love that stat.
There are six local teams still going, split right down the middle between Boys and Girls teams. One school has both the Boys and Girls team going and that is Montgomery. All the teams left qualify for the Nor Cal playoffs, no matter what they do in the next round.
Three of the six teams that made the NCS Semi-Finals have home games. All the North Coast Section Semi-Final are on Wednesday.
The weekend results and schedule is below the recap of Division 4-6.
The examples continue to show up that the NCL I doesn’t belong in this division. Middletown and Kelseyville tied for the league championship and lost to No. 1 and No. 2 of this bracket by 55 and 41 points.
It bears repeating that this doesn’t mean Cardinal Newman doesn’t belong here. It takes a special team from even Cardinal Newman to make a big run in the bracket. The Cardinal Newman Boys team was good, not special.
The Cardinal Newman Girls are special.
The Cardinal Newman Boys went on the road to meet No. 1 Salesian. The main thing you can say is it wasn’t a blowout. Salesian defeated Cardinal Newman 62-44 in a game they had control of in the first half, jumping out to a twenty point lead. Salesian has won four of six NCS Division 4 Championships.
The Cardinal Newman Boys end the season 20-10.
The Cardinal Newman Girls were matched up against one of the NCL I teams and barely broke a sweat in a 63-22 win over Middletown. Cardinal Newman led 25-4 after one and raises their record to 26-4.
The Division 4 bracket went the way as expected. The top four seeds are in the semi-finals. Of the four games Saturday, one was decided by less than ten points. That was No. 3 St. Mary’s defeating No. 6 Marin Catholic 59-53. St. Mary’s has won five of seven NCS Division 4 section championships and plays at Cardinal Newman on Wednesday.
It was a split for the Cloverdale teams in two entertaining games.
The No. 5 Cloverdale Boys traveled to San Francisco and dropped a 66-52 game to No. 4 Stuart Hall. Stuart Hall jumped out to a ten point halftime lead. Each team scored 20 points in the third quarter. Jayson McMillan scored 25 for Cloverdale who ends the season 26-5.
The No. 2 Cloverdale Girls survived as they edged No. 10 College Prep 46-42. This was a game from the start and wasn’t decided until Karsyn Stewart hit two free throws with :07 left to put things away. It was part of a 12 point night for Stewart. Angel Bernardi led Cloverdale with 23 points as they raise their record to 24-7.
The Division 5 Girls bracket also has the Top Four in the semi-finals. Cloverdale host No. 3 Urban on Wednesday.
Went from six teams to two in the Division and one is guaranteed to be in the NCS Championship Game. That is because No. 3 Archbishop Hanna is at No. 2 Anderson Valley in the Semi-Final on Saturday. Both had twenty plus point wins to advance.
The only local team in the division that didn’t have a twenty point game was the Round Valley Girls who went on the road and lost to No. 4 CSD Fremont 38-34.
