DVC WOMEN ADVANCE IN PLAYOFFS!!!

 

The Diablo Valley women's basketball team broke the century mark for the fourth time this season with an entertaining 109-87 win over visiting Mission in the CCCAA Northern California Regional playoffs Saturday night.
The Vikings' brilliant backcourt of Safiyyah Yasin (36 points) and Doris Jones (29 points) was dominant as DVC was excellent for the first three-quarters. The Vikings scored 63 points in a spectacular first half of offense.
Next, the Vikings (25-6) will travel to CCSF in the third round on March 4, and will be one win away from a berth in the eight-team state finals at Las Positas.
"Great team win," DVC coach Ramaundo Vaughn said. "Now we have to prepare for a very good San Francisco team that we beat in December 97-83. Should be a very high-scoring affair and a great game to watch."
DVC had great efforts all around against Mission. Sami Oliver contributed 12 points and seven rebounds, and CC Cuneo added 11 points and six rebounds. Deja Johnson had nine points and nine boards, and Kyla Miller had nine points and eight boards.
