Notre Dame-SFC girls hoops

Division V semifinals
Notre Dame vs. St. Francis Catholic, 5:30 p.m. at Castilleja High, Palo Alto

The No. 2 seeded Spirits (13-12) have been hurt by the loss of Kiera Paulo for the season with a torn ACL. The senior guard was averaging 10 points and a handful of steals a game.
 Her absence was evident in Notre Dame's 38-33 win over Anzar last Saturday.
 Now the Spirits face a St. Francis squad that has won three of its last four, with the one loss being to SCCAL champion Soquel by just six points.
 Lauren Price is been on fire for the Sharks (14-12), averaging 18.5 points a game.
 These teams are no strangers to each other, having played on Dec. 29 with Notre Dame pulling out a 42-39 win.
 The Spirits will need more than sophomore Marisa Given, who dropped in 24 of the teams 38 points last Saturday, including a school record seven 3-point goals.
 Senior starting guard Morgan Balestreri is a game time decision with an illness.
