NCS PLAYOFFS: DIVISION 2 AND 3 SUMMARY
This report is mainly about Division 1, 2 and 3. The other three Divisions will come tomorrow.
The scoreboard and schedule for all is below.
Before moving on to Round Two, this is for Santa Rosa fans. In a Division 1 Girls Game No. 1 Castro Valley beat No. 16 Clayton Valley Charter 65-19. These are kids and I don’t like to point out scores like that, but Clayton Valley Charter was the team that got in instead of Santa Rosa. Being in Division 1, a game with Castro Valley was only a matter of time. They are now 28-2 on the season.
This second round is a big game. This is the last elimination game in a while. The winners of this round qualify not only move to the NCS Semi-Finals, they qualify for the Nor Cal Playoffs.
For the third time this season there is a Montgomery-Windsor Boys Basketball game.
Of course, Windsor won the first two games. Despite that, they shouldn’t be feeling overconfident even though Windsor didn’t have much of a problem with NBL teams this season. The biggest problem was Montgomery nearly three weeks ago. Windsor was fortunate that game didn’t go overtime. Parker Canady’s put back basket at the buzzer gave Windsor a 40-38 win. That is one of two games all season that Windsor hasn’t scored at least 50 points. The other one was also against Montgomery, although they won that a lot easier 49-30.
This isn’t the first time Windsor has been the No. 1 seed. In 2007 they got a bye, one win and then lost to No. 4 Montgomery 55-46. Back then the league championship rule was in effect each round. Montgomery won the NBL that season. Windsor was in the SCL at the time and finished second, yet they got the No. 1 seed. Now the league championship rule only applies in the first round.
The only other good news locally in the first round was the Montgomery Girls. They got another monster game from Sophomore Shayla Newman who 20 points and 26 rebounds in a 63-48 win over Arroyo. It was Newman’s 14th double-double of the season and second in which both the double figures were in the twenties. The 26 rebounds is a season high.
The Montgomery Girls are 18-8 on the season and as the No. 4 seed get another home game on Friday against Concord.
Concord is in the same league as Clayton Valley Charter and went through that league 12-0. They won their NCS opener over Livermore 53-38. They have wins over Windsor and Middletown. They also went 3-0 against Clayton Valley Charter and have won eleven straight.
The first round was close to a super round for the local teams in this Division. The other four teams lost, with three of the losses by five points or less and one of those in overtime.
The overtime loss was by the Petaluma Boys to Redwood 55-49. Petaluma trailed most of the game, fought back to tie and then was held scoreless in the OT.
Meanwhile the Ukiah Boys led most of the way before being edged by Concord 57-55. A three point play with 5.5 left was the game winner for Concord. Ukiah fell short despite a 21 point game from Sammy Mora.
The Montgomery Girls were one of three NBL D2 teams to host a first round game, but were the only one to move on as both Ukiah and Casa Grande lost.
This Division also has two advance, the Analy Boys and the Sonoma Girls.
For the Analy Boys, Jordan Armstrong had his second straight big game with 22 points and ten rebounds to lead Analy to a 47-39 win over Encinal. It was Armstrong’s second double-double of the season. Analy went into the fourth quarter trailing by 1.
Next up is a trip to Hayward to meet No. 1 Moreau Catholic who is 22-4 on the season and had a first round bye. They went 13-1 to win the Mission Valley League and have hit the 100 point mark this season twice and are averaging 77 a game. For comparison Analy has scored over 77 once and reach the marked twice. Moreau Catholic has four players averaging over ten points a game.
The Sonoma Valley Girls are also going on the road to meet Campolindo, who is the No. 3 seed and 23-4 on the season. Campolindo went 10-2 to finish second in the Diablo Foothill League. The losses were to Miramonte who is 26-0 and the No. 1 seed in this bracket. Campolindo lost those games by a combined 109 points. One of the scores was 102-38.
Sonoma Valley advanced with a 35-31 win over Eureka with Jenny Eggers scoring 16 and pulled down eight rebounds. They have won fourteen straight and are 21-8 on the season.
The Analy Girls were another just miss, dropping a 46-44 decision at San Marin to end the season 17-12. Earlier this season, Analy went to San Marin and lost 52-29.
Also losing was the two Piner teams. The Piner Girls lost by a kind of score that was expect to Bishop o’ Dowd. But just remember you were the first in school history.
