We take a brief diversion from the National Signing Day hubbub to reflect on one of the more eye-opening basketball scores from Tuesday night: Jesuit's 58-41 win against Class 3A, District 10 top seed Berkeley Prep (16-8).

The Tigers (13-8), who have dropped four games by four or fewer points, outscored the Bucs 22-2 in the third quarter to pull away.

The key, according to Tigers coach Neal Goldman, was his club's successful effort to exploit the interior. Fifteen of Jesuit's third-period points came inside. Brawny 6-foot-1 senior Calvin Ruff had a season-high 11 points -- on senior night, no less -- and 6-4 freshman Travis Johnson scored all 16 of his points in the second half.

"We had a great spirited crowd, with our student body Blue Tide supporters that really helped us," Goldman said.

Look for another raucous audience Friday at Jesuit, when the Tigers host rival Tampa Catholic.
