2A-11 boys basketball: Shorecrest rallies past Farragut for first title since 1994

Shorecrest mounted a furious comeback in the second half to beat rival Admiral Farragut 71-60 in overtime Saturday in the Class 2A, District 12 championship at Sarasota Out-of-Door.

The Chargers, who trailed by 10 after three quarters, outscored the Blue Jackets 19-9 in the fourth to tie at 59 at the end of regulation. It is the first time Shorecrest has made the playoffs since 1999 and it is the school's first district title since 1994.

"We were the doormat in this district for a long time," Chargers coach Daryl Blume said. "But these kids never gave up."

Shorecrest (14-8) got hot early as Ricky Quiroz hit seven 3s in the first quarter to help the Chargers go up 23-17. Farragut chipped away at the deficit the next two quarters and took control. Then Quiroz and Luke Blume each hit a pair of 3s in a one-minute span in the fourth to ignite Shorecrest's late surge. Quiroz finished with 31 points and Blume had 16.
