3A-10 district basketball: Tampa Catholic, Berkeley face little resistance

TAMPA — The Class 3A-10 district championship will be decided by the top two seeds.

Just as expected.

Tampa Catholic used a second-half surge to pull away from St. Petersburg Catholic en route to a 65-47 win on Wednesday.

The Crusaders (18-7) made a season-high 10 3-pointers in beating the Barons for the third time in three tries.

"We've run into some problems when we haven't shot the ball well," Tampa Catholic coach Don Dziagwa said. "It's always big when you can knock down shots, especially 3-pointers."

Knock them down they did as five Crusaders made at least one 3-pointer.

Freshman Chivarsky Corbett came off the bench to lead the Crusaders with 15 points as the Tampa Catholic reserves outscored the Barons 26-0.

Lashawn Harrison had 14 points and Antonio Rubio had 11.

SPC (12-12) got a game-high 22 from Jacquel Cooper while Matt Dexter added 10.

In the first semifinal, top-seeded Berkeley Prep (18-7) had little trouble with Clearwater Central Catholic (8-17), dispatching the Marauders 66-37.

Nelson Agholor (15), Justin Gray (15) and Reggie Barnes (14) led the way for the Buccaneers, who swept the season series with Tampa Catholic.

"We're going to have our hands full," Dziagwa said. "They're really good, but we'll get a third crack at them and being at home should help."
