In perhaps a passing of the torch, two emerging girls basketball programs beat well-established powers in tonight's Sac-Joaquin Section quarterfinals.
Katie King's 24 points, including two deciding free throws with two seconds, helped seventh-seeded River City to stun No. 2 El Camino 50-48 in a Division II thriller at El Camino.
Meanwhile in South Sacramento, Daijah Joe-Smith's 22 points led No. 4 Florin to a 58-46 win over No. 5 Del Oro, last year's Sac-Joaquin Section and CIF NorCal Division II runners-up.
Florin will face top-seeded St. Mary's of Stockton while River City plays No. 3 McNair in the D-II semifinals Tuesday at the Spanos Center at UOP.
