Despite being held to just 35 points and their leading scorer held to single digits for the first time this season, Women's Basketball countered with a suffocating defensive effort to beat host Newsome, 35-23, in the Regional Quarterfinal last night. DP (19-9) separated themselves from a 7-7 tie with the Wolves in the second quarter with a pair of threes from Truly Le and Porchia Washington to take a 16-9 lead at the half. In the third, the Panthers got into some foul trouble but the defense bailed them out as Newsome was only able to close their deficit to six, 26-20. DP continued to choke Newsome on the defensive end and Truly Le knocked a couple of big baskets down the stretch as the Panthers advance to the Regional Semifinal. Le finished with ten points and three assists, Zoe Alexander added six points, eight rebounds and four assists, Porchia Washington chipped in seven points and Beyonce Sierra pulled down seven rebounds. DP will get another shot at District Champion Oak Ridge Tuesday night at 7:00 pm.
