After one round of Delta River League action, the Sheldon girls basketball team found itself on the outside of the playoff picture. The Huskies’ record stood at 14-7 overall and 2-3 in league play, prompting the need for a strong finish. They won their final six games and earned the No. 7 seed in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I playoffs. Brianna Burgos capped the Huskies’ 6-0 finish with a pair of big games — a 25-point effort to help the Huskies defeat Brookside Christian 62-61, and a team-high 29 points in a 65-60 win over Pleasant Grove.

SportStars: Was there extra motivation to beat a local/league rival in Pleasant Grove?

Brianna Burgos: It is always great to win a big game against a rival, but it was even bigger playing in one of the toughest leagues in the area. St. Francis (which won the Section title in 2011) is in our league and had to win its last game just to make the playoffs, so every league game is huge.

SSM: What has been the biggest difference for you down the stretch?

BB: I feel like I am at full strength now. I was recovering from a tibia fracture at the start of the season, and felt like during the first half of the season I was getting back into shape. 

SSM: Did the Pleasant Grove victory provide the team with a confidence boost?

BB: That win definitely gives us confidence heading into the playoffs. We feel real good knowing that we beat the top seed in our division.
