Boys Basketball NCS Div II Brackets (updated 2/22)

NCS/Les Schwab Tires Boys’ Basketball Championships Division 2

Feb 21 – Boys Basketball Advances in NCS Playoffs

The Acalanes boys basketball team beat Santa Rosa last night at home, 75-52, in the first round of the NCS Division II championships. Santa Rosa led at 3-2, but Nick Price put up a three pointer to go ahead–and the Dons never looked back.  The lead scorers for Acalanes spread the wealth, with Mitchell Smith and Jesse Marlow each scoring 12; Carson Etnyre scoring 11; and Robby Rowell, Aaron Hill and Ryan Nall all scoring 10.

Santa Rosa was a solid, physical team, but Acalanes played better “team” basketball to come away with the victory. The Dons took a fairly close game and ran away with it using a string of fast break buckets led by Smith and Marlow. Nall, Rowell and Hill controlled the paint.  The Dons ended the game with a crowd pleasing bucket by Will Grace.  It was 23-18 at the end of the 1st; 37-31 at half; 54-40 at the end of the third.

The Dons play away at Moreau Catholic in Hayward on Friday night in the quarterfinal game.  The boys hope Dons fans will come out to Hayward and support Acalanes!  Go Dons!

Feb 21 – Girls Basketball Advances to Quarterfinals

The Lady Dons posted a 64 to 52 victory in round 1 of the NCS Division 2 playoffs Tuesday night over Rancho Cotate.  After a back and forth first half of play the Dons had a small halftime lead.  Both teams largely spent the first half feeling each other out.  Finally, the Dons began to assert themselves in the 3rd quarter behind the point guard leadership of Brooke Panfili, inside the paint domination of Emma Godfrey, and all around outstanding play of Roni Marrone.  The lead grew to double digits early in the 4th quarter and the girls didn’t look back the rest of the way.  Brooke Panfili made multiple key shots in the second half on her way to a game high 21 points.  Meanwhile, Emma Godfrey scored 18 points and Roni Marrone added 15 points.  The ladies are back in action Friday night at home for round 2 of the playoffs against Redwood!
