TAMPA — Cambridge raced out to a 32-17 lead as the Lancers cruised past Academy at the Lakes 64-26 victory in a Class A-9 district semifinal Tuesday.

Cambridge’s Cameron Brown scored 17 on the way to his 1,000th career point. He also had 12 rebounds.

“We came out flat, but defensively we played really well,” Lancers junior Spencer Smith said.

Matt Grossenbach gave AATL (6-21) a four-point lead at the end of the first quarter after a 3-pointer.

Josh Metcalf led Cambridge (17-7) with 19 points on five 3-pointers. Luke Rogers added 13 points, and Spencer Smith had 13 points, six rebounds, four assists and two blocked shots.

In the other semifinal, Canterbury used its speed to outhustle Keswick Christian for a 66-43 victory.
Three consecutive baskets by Bryce Wilson and a 3-pointer by Desean Thomas put the Crusaders up 38-23 at halftime.

By the end of the third quarter that lead swelled to 20 points. Wilson finished with 24 points and Thomas had a game-high 21 rebounds and 11 points.
