BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - After winning their first two home games in the CIF Division II State Regional, the Ridgeview girls basketball team had one final frontier to pass at home Tuesday night: Get a third win and advance to the Regional final on Saturday in Ontario.
The top-seeded Wolfpack wasted no time in completing their task in a 92-73 win over fourth-seeded Riverside J.W. North.
Ridgeview was led by 37 points from McDonald's All-American Erica McCall and guard Candace Wilkerson played her point guard position with dexterity by adding 23 points and controlling the tempo to the Wolfpack's liking.
The Wolfpack led by seven after the first quarter, 13 at the half and 22 after three quarters.
Ridgeview advances to take on Lynwood this Saturday at 10AM at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario. These met earlier this season with Ridgeview winning, 43-41, on December 1.
