5A girls basketball: Hillsborough comes on strong late, tops Venice

VENICE — Hillsborough used a big fourth quarter top Venice 60-47 in the Class 5A region quarterfinals Thursday.

The Terriers outscored Venice 23-8 in the fourth quarter and held it to just one basket over the final four minutes.

The Terriers (19-8) trailed 39-37 after three quarters but scored the first six points of the fourth quarter to grab a 43-39 lead. Hillsborough maintained the four-point cushion midway through the fourth quarter.

Trailing 49-45 with 4:15 left, Venice (13-10) then was unable to score as Hillsborough rattled off nine consecutive points to take command.

The speedy Terriers snapped a 13-all tie early in the second quarter with an eight-point run keyed by consecutive 3-pointers from Cassandra Nevarez.

Hillsborough outrebounded Venice 44-29.
