3A-10 district basketball: Berkeley Prep 62, Tampa Catholic 52

TAMPA — Berkeley Prep took care of Tampa Catholic for the third time this season to complete the sweep and win the Class 3A-10 district championship Friday 62-52.

The Buccaneers used a big third quarter to break a halftime tie and get the win on the Crusaders' home floor.

"We knew we'd have to come in here and be on top of our game," Buccaneers coach Bobby Reinhart said. "We were able to finally get some separation from them and I think we played real well overall."

Berkeley Prep (19-7) outscored the Crusaders 20-9 in a decisive third quarter that saw the Buccaneers score 14 of the team's 36 points in the paint, with many on second-chance opportunities.

After scoring just one first-half point, Bucs guard Nelson Agholor came alive with 12 in the second-half and Reggie Barnes scored a team-high 17 to aid the win.

The Buccaneers had no answer for Tampa Catholic's sharp-shooting guard Lashawn Harrison but were able to hold the rest of the Crusaders (18-8) in check.

Harrison finished with a game-high 25, but no other Crusader reached double figures.

"We knew Lashawn would get his; he's that good of a player," Reinhart said.

Berkeley Prep will be at home Thursday when it hosts a region quarterfinal game, but Reinhart knows his team should be ready for the challenge going forward.

"We've played a tough schedule all year on purpose," Reinhart said. We're ready for the test and hopefully we'll play well."

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.
