2A-10 boys basketball: Tampa Prep routs Calvary Christian 83-40

CLEARWATER — Dunks, alley-oop passes and behind-the-back passes — it is all a part of what Jay Bowie calls "our game."

It also helps to have a 41-point run.

Tampa Prep defended its Class 2A, District 10 title Saturday by beating Calvary Christian 83-40.

"We played our game," said Bowie, a senior forward. "We really pushed it. We played the way we like to play."

The Terrapins (23-4) held an 8-7 lead in the first quarter, then went on a 41-0 scoring binge. During the run, Devontae Morgan scored on an alley-oop and a dunk. Jamal Cherry scored after taking a slick behind-the-back pass, and Bowie had the first of his two dunks.

"The way we were after it, we had a lot of opportunities for us to get up on the rim," Bowie said.

But the Terrapins may possess more than just a fast-paced offense and hard-playing defense. Before the game an assistant coach was passing out gum to everyone on the team.

"It's a tradition we started this year," Bowie said. "It might make us jump higher, but don't look too far into it.

"I don't want any investigation," he joked.

Tampa Prep shot 36-for-59 (61 percent) from the field. Bowie was the high scorer with 15 points and Morgan had 14.

Calvary Christian (11-16) took 43 shots from the field — 27 from 3-point range. Alex Gloven finished with 14 points.

    Keep him.

    Jonathan Drouin is live bait. The Lightning is ready to run the hook through him and cast him out there again. Drouin has enough talent for the Lightning to meet some defensive needs in a deal.

    Keep him.
