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.
