February 2, 2020 --
The #3-seed OCP Lady Warriors begin the 2020 FHSAA Class 2A playoffs with a district semifinal contest against host school and #2-seed Victory Christian Academy tonight at 5pm.
There are only four teams in Class 2A District 11 this year and due to the challenges that schools across the state have had to deal with related to COVID, the FHSAA reverted back to their previous method of determining which teams advance to the Regionals following District play. Only tonight's winner will be guaranteed two more games following tonight's game.
Three of the Top 10 teams in Class 2A are in District 11 - #2 City of Life Christian Academy (1 seed) with a record of 10-5, #6 Victory Christian Academy (2 seed) with a record of 12-5, and #9 OCP (3 seed) with a record of 12-7. City of Life Christian will play Faith Christian at 7pm following the OCP-VCA contest.
Last year, OCP defeated Victory Christian 55-54 in the district semifinals as Siarah Brown scored the game-winning basket as time expired to advance the Lady Warriors to the district championship game against City of Life.
The Lady Warriors average 46.0 points per game and have allowed opponents an average of 41.1 points per game. The Storm average 55.4 points per game and allow an average of 38.1 points per game to opponents.
Junior Jasmyne Wright leads the Warriors in scoring averaging 16.3 points per game, along with 6.9 rebounds per game and 2.6 assists per game. Sophomore guard Siarah Brown is the second-leading scorer with an average of 15 points per game, team best 7.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game.
The winner advances to the district championship game on Friday, February 5 at 7pm.
The 2019-20 season was the first season in many years that only the district champion was guaranteed a spot in the regionals as all other teams would be seeded as non-automatic qualifiers based on their rankings on MaxPreps.com. With the unbalanced schedules and county/district restrictions many teams had to deal with, the FHSAA reverted back to advancing the District Champion and District Runner-Up to the Regionals for this season. But, the seeding of the district tournaments would be based on MaxPreps rankings since teams did not have to play each other at least once as had been the requirement in previous years.
Good luck to our Lady Warriors!
