Natalie Billing had 29 points and 10 rebounds and Cayla Bensman added 26 points as Anna had little trouble breaking the Orrville press for an 80-59 victory in a girls Division III semifinal on Thursday to set up a rematch of last year's final.

The Rockets (25-4) will play Columbus Africentric Early College on Saturday at 10:45 a.m. The Nubians in 2012 snapped Anna's 50-game winning streak with a 70-66 overtime victory..

Anna took a 49-33 halftime lead by hitting 19 of 32 shots (59.4 percent) with the aid of 12 layups. The Rockets finished 33 for 51 (64.7 percent)from the floor without attempting a three-pointer.

Hanna Plybon, the Associated Press co-player of the year in Division III, had 28 points for Orrville (26-3) in its first semifinal since 1993.
