4A region basketball: Jesuit 38, Braden River 27

EAST MANATEE — Braden River got a history lesson on why the college game adopted the shot clock 26 years ago. It played a key role in the Pirates' 38-27 loss to Jesuit in a Class 4A region quarterfinal Thursday.

In the second half, Jesuit (24-4) went to a four corners offense popularized by Dean Smith, who coached North Carolina 36 years. When the Tigers led 24-21 at the outset of the fourth, they held the ball for long periods while frustrating Braden River (19-8).

"I have a great point guard (Hunter Clonts) and with him we can get to the four corners and it's pretty effective when you have the lead late in the game," Jesuit coach Neal Goldman said. "…Most teams don't know how to react to the four corners because they don't see it."

Joey Galvis led Jesuit with 14 points. Clonts only had two free throws, but his ball handling was the difference.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Pretty well emotionally spent, and not at all rested physically having just finished a life-changing stint with his native Jamaica in the Gold Cup, Damion Lowe wants the Rowdies to know he's ready.

    Damion Lowe, right, returns to the Rowdies — though he is likely to get a rest in tonight’s 7:30 home game against Pittsburgh — after an eventful six Gold Cup matches.

    NEW YORK — Sometimes you just have to dig out the good news, and for the Rays on Friday it may well have been that they didn't get no-hit in a 6-1 loss.

  5. Steve Cishek latest bullpen upgrade for Rays, who now must translate that to wins

    The Heater

    NEW YORK — The Rays made another addition to change the look of their bullpen Friday in acquiring veteran side-armer and former closer Steve Cishek from Seattle.

    Reliever Steve Cishek has a 3.15 ERA in 20 games after recovering from offseason hip surgery and a 1.86 ERA since a rocky second outing of the season.
