2A region basketball: Tampa Prep 54, Calvary Christian 43

TAMPA — It was a little closer than the previous three games but Tampa Prep once again got past Calvary Christian.

The Terrapins started strong Tuesday and were able to hold off the Warriors for a 54-43 win to advance to the Class 2A region final.

Tampa Prep (24-3) jumped out to a 12-4 lead after the first quarter, but the Warriors played the Terrapins close the rest of the way, which didn't surprise Tampa Prep coach Joe Fenlon.

"You know each team is so familiar with each other at this point," Fenlon said. "The outcome of the previous three games didn't matter for this game and it kind of showed."

After the Terrapins took an 11-point lead into the half, the Warriors responded with a couple of scoring runs thanks in large part to 6-foot-9 center Kyle Wiedinger, who had his way inside and finished with 18 points.

Calvary (18-10) cut the lead to four midway through the fourth but could get no closer after a key offensive foul on Wiedinger wiped out a potential three-point play.

The Terrapins' main duo of Devontae Morgan (18) and Josh Heath (17) once again led the way for the home team, which will play Admiral Farragut on Saturday for a shot to go to the final four for the third consecutive season.

"We get to play for another regional championship and I'm very happy for our kids," Fenlon said. "To be able to host it is even better."
