2A region basketball: Calvary Christian 57, Kissimmee New Dimensions 56

For the second straight season, Calvary Christian won a tight game, 57-56, against Kissimmee New Dimensions in the Class 2A region quarterfinals.

Last season, Calvary had to rally in regulation and won in double overtime. On Thursday night, the Warriors had the lead and held on as New Dimensions missed a shot at the buzzer.

"It was big for us to win a playoff game on the road again," Calvary Christian coach Mark Carter said.

The Warriors led by as many as 10 points in the third quarter and withstood a rally. Stephen Brown hit two free throws to make it 57-53 with 30 seconds left.

Kyle Wiedinger led Calvary Christian with 20 points. Alex Govan hit four 3-pointers, and Tyler Daniel scored three 3-pointers for the Warriors.

    OXFORD, Miss. — Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze was at Jackson Country Club on Wednesday night, giving his yearly rah-rah speech about the Rebels overcoming adversity and getting ready for the college football season.

  5. Fennelly: With playoff chase in high gear, it's time for Rays to make a move

    The Heater


    Thursday was an off-day for the Rays, who are coming off a solid western swing. I assume there was no rest for the tag-team Rays baseball brain trust of Matt Silverman, Erik Neander and Chaim Bloom, whose job it is to improve this team in advance of the trade deadline.
