The Lady Dons move on to the NCS Semifinals defeating Analy 47-42. It looked like Analy was going to roll over Acalanes, scoring at will in the first quarter. A determined Acalanes team rallied back to 26-22 at halftime. Both teams stepped up their defense in the fourth quarter, with neither team allowing many points. Analy was in a position to tie the game in the final minute, but missed. Analy’s last second fouls trying to regain the ball gave the Lady Dons the game on free throws.
