5A boys basketball: Chamberlain misses its chances

PUNTA GORDA — Chamberlain got close but Charlotte pulled away Thursday for a 61-53 victory in a 5A region quarterfinal.

Charlotte led 55-52 with a little more than a minute left when the Chiefs' Eric Storts drove to the basket, but his layup clanged off the back iron.

"He got caught up in his emotions," coach Christopher Snyder said. "He knows if he settles down for half a second, the defense would be on his heels and he'd get a wide-open layup."

D.J. Scott grabbed the rebound and was fouled by Storts, his fifth of the night. Scott made one of two shots, making it a two-possession game.

Reginald Hart missed a basket in the paint on Chamberlain's next trip down the floor, and the ball somehow missed three sets of Chiefs hands to fall to Scott.

After he was fouled, Scott made both shots for a 58-52 lead with 38 seconds to play. The Chiefs were outrebounded 41-23.

Hart led Chamberlain (15-11) with 19 points, while Storts added 15.

"We gave up too many second-chance baskets," Snyder said.

  1. Bucs journal: Kicker Nick Folk has up and downs against Jaguars


    JACKSONVILLE — If the Bucs had hoped for a drama-free night in their kicking game, they'll have to wait another week.

    Bucs kicker Nick Folk celebrates one of his two made field goals against the Jaguars, but he also misses a field goal and has an extra point blocked.
  2. Bucs top Jaguars behind strong first half



    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Doug Martin gets the Bucs’ only touchdown  on a 2-yard run, squeaking past linebacker Telvin Smith in the first quarter. He has five carries for 30 yards.
  3. Rays journal: Archer has strong outing, with two mistakes

    TORONTO — Two pitches RHP Chris Archer didn't execute are the ones that stood out Thursday as Josh Donaldson hit them out of the park. But the two solo home runs aside, Archer turned in a sterling outing that went atop the pile of good pitching the Rays keep wasting.
