2A-10 district basketball: Tampa Prep 63, Calvary Christian 38

LARGO — Winning district championships has become business as usual for Tampa Prep (22-3), with the Terps picking up their sixth straight Saturday with a 63-38 Class 2A, District 10 win over Calvary Christian.

"We executed well and we did what we wanted to do and that was to neutralize Calvary's dominate post player, Kyle Wiedinger," Tampa Prep coach Joe Fenlon said. "We did not have anyone who could defend him in the paint."

Suffocating defense and great guard play by Josh Heath (18 points) and Devontae Morgan (19 points) were the catalysts for Tampa Prep.

In the first quarter the Terps played a tight man-to-man defense to offset Calvary's (17-9) top post player and it seemed to work. Tampa Prep went up 15-7 early as Morgan scored eight points in the quarter, and the Terps never looked back.

The lead swelled to 15 by halftime. After the break Tampa Prep went on an 18-8 run.

"We played well and forced a lot of turnovers with our trapping defense and we really neutralized their post player," Heath said.
