SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. - Defense isn't glamorous, but it does win basketball games, and South Tahoe proved it Wednesday.
The lady Vikings used defense to shut down a disorganized Truckee team 35-28 in the playoff quarterfinals. The win advances South Tahoe to semifinals against Elko on Friday. The winner will then move on to finals Saturday and earn an automatic trip to state.
On Wednesday, South Tahoe jumped out to an early lead and held it through all four quarters.
Senior Brooke King cemented the win for the Vikings when she nailed a free throw that made it a three-possession game in the final minute.
