  • Region girls basketball: Naples Barron Collier 33, Hillsborough 28

    TAMPA — Hillsborough had a plan, the same one it had used all season. The Terriers had been accustomed to getting the ball inside to 6-foot forward Trinity Baptiste, who usually delivered. But in the 6A region final, Naples Barron Collier all but took that opportunity away — and with ...

  • Region girls basketball: Fort Myers Dunbar 66, Tampa Catholic 42

    FORT MYERS — Fort Myers Dunbar wasn’t concerned with 6-foot-1 Tampa Catholic forward Alise Davis getting touches in the paint. Each time the sophomore got the ball she was swarmed by at least two Tigers. It made for a frustrating night for Davis and her teammates. Dunbar (23-4) also forced ...

  • Region girls basketball: Seffner Christian 67, Daytona Beach Father Lopez 19

    Region girls basketball: Seffner Christian 67, Daytona Beach Father Lopez 19 SEFFNER — The playoffs shouldn’t be a cakewalk. But even when Seffner Christian’s shots weren’t falling in its Class 3A region final matchup with Daytona Beach Father Lopez on Friday, the Crusaders didn’t have to work all that hard to move on. Father Lopez was scoreless through the first five ...

  • Region boys basketball: Freedom 78, Strawberry Crest 54

    TAMPA — Strawberry Crest couldn’t stop Freedom’s Jamal Byrne in the first quarter, couldn’t slow down Sheldon Odunna in the second, and was torched by Chase Creasy in the third. By the time the fourth quarter rolled around, Freedom was able to empty its bench as it cruised to a ...

  • Region boys basketball: Jesuit 62, Lakewood 54

    TAMPA — Daniel Darst, Chad Holtz and Christian Whidden were all sophomores when Jesuit won a state title two years ago. Now seniors, the three provided the leadership — and points — in the Tigers’  62-54 win over Lakewood in the Class 5A region quarterfinals. It was the first time ...

  • Region boys basketball: Jefferson 52, Largo 38

    Region boys basketball: Jefferson 52, Largo 38 TAMPA — The rematch became a mismatch. Jefferson avenged last year’s Class 6A region quarterfinal loss to Largo with a 52-38 victory Thursday night. Senior Maurice Moore scored a game-high 23 points for the Dragons (25-4), who won their 13th consecutive game. Largo (13-13) sorely missed the firepower of four ...

  • Region boys basketball: Gibbs 70, Robinson 48

    ST. PETERSBURG — For the first five minutes of Thursday night’s Class 5A region quarterfinal, Robinson did just about anything it wanted against Gibbs in building a 13-point lead. For the rest of the game, the Gladiators made sure the Knights couldn’t do much at all.  Gibbs roared back from ...

  • Region boys basketball: Berkeley Prep 76, Lakeland McKeel 61

    TAMPA — Berkeley Prep (22-6) drained 3-pointers at will in Thursday’s Class 4A region quarterfinal, and Lakeland McKeel (11-16) seemed to stand no chance as travel calls and fouls played into their downfall in a 76-61 loss to the Bucs.  In the first half alone, the Wildcats committed 10 fouls ...

  • Region boys basketball: Seffner Christian 65, Winter Haven All Saints’ 57

    WINTER HAVEN — Seffner Christian’s Kent Hegarty and Derek Webster did their part with 20 and 17 points, respectively, but it was reserve sophomore Christian Noskey who came off the bench for 15 points that lifted the Crusaders to a 65-57 victory over All Saints’ on Thursday.

  • Region boys basketball: St. Petersburg 53, Newsome 46

    LITHIA — It was a game of runs in Thursday’s Class 8A region quarterfinal between Newsome and St. Petersburg, one that saw six lead changes and seven ties in the first half. Then Newsome went on its own 7-0 run to start the third quarter with a 10-point lead, and ...

    TAMPA — Whether it was blocking shots, dunking the ball or shooting a 3-pointer, Juwan Durham made it look easy for Tampa Prep. Durham took advantage of his 6-foot-9 height to score 23 points and block six shots to lead Tampa Prep (22-6) past Lakeland Santa Fe Catholic (11-4) 85-26 ...

  • Region boys basketball: Mitchell 53, Armwood 52

    TRINITY — Mitchell was having the worst kind of deja vu. When Armwood’s Kenny Jones hit a 3-pointer with 11 seconds left, giving the Hawks a one-point lead, the Mustangs couldn’t help but think of their loss on a last-second shot to Lennard in last year’s Class 6A region quarterfinals. ...

  • Hillsborough forward Trinity Baptiste gets extra boost from the crowd

    On paper, Hillsborough High was the better team. But early in its Class 6A region girls basketball semifinal against Osceola on Tuesday, the Terriers didn’t look like it.  Just as second-quarter play began, a small crowd of people walked into the gymnasium, each person dressed in Hillsborough red and the ...
