3A boys basketball: Berkeley Prep prevails in overtime

MULBERRY — Mulberry had trouble against the press defense, falling 60-50 in overtime to Berkeley Prep in the Class 3A region quarterfinals Thursday.

With the win, the Buccaneers (18-10) host Avon Park on Tuesday. The Panthers end their year at 19-7.

After leading by 10 after three quarters, Mulberry turned the ball over on the first three possessions of the fourth quarter. Berkeley took advantage to cut its deficit to 39-35 with four minutes left. Mulberry did not score in the last three minutes of regulation, and Berkeley tied behind the play of Reggie Barnes and Michael Seward.

"We just self-destructed," Panthers coach Lester Hunt said. "My team acted like they had never seen a 1-2-2 press before."

The Panthers committed 17 turnovers in the game.

Lee Amos led Mulberry with 23 points and six rebounds.
