Mary Williams proved to be unstoppable for Rialto’s girls basketball team on Saturday night.
The junior center had 17 of her game-high 25 points in the second half and added 19 rebounds as Rialto pulled away from North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake 76-60 in a CIF State Division II Southern Regional semifinal at Rialto High School.
Top-seeded Rialto (32-3) advances to the regional final on Saturday against second-seeded Ventura Buena. Rialto defeated Buena 55-53 in the CIF-SS Division 2AA championship game last week. This time, the game will be played at USC’s Galen Center. Game time is 2 p.m. Saturday.
The Rialto-Buena game will be the first of back-to-back games featuring area teams.

One of the other games on Saturday at Galen Center is the Division III boys final, featuring La Canada and La Verne Lutheran at noon.
