When: 6 p.m. today
Where: The Pit, Albuquerque
Thursday's semifinal results: Texico defeated Dulce 53-38. Navajo Pine defeated Penasco 77-49.
Notes: The defending champion Lady Wolverines are seeking their fourth 2A title in five years, and their seventh since 2000. … Texico defeated Navajo Pine in last year's final. … Texico coach Keith Durham said the Lady Warriors return three starters from last year in 5-4 sophomore G Demetria Clichee, 5-6 senior G Cinandre Dolfin and 6-0- senior post Chelsea Yazzie. "They want the game to be kind of helter-skelter," Durham said. "We need the game to be more disciplined." The key, Durham added, is to force the Lady Warriors to play defense for long stretches. "We've got to be good enough to pass and execute, and get them to the point where they break down," he said.
