A-9 boys basketball: Cambridge rolls over Canterbury for title

Class A, district 9

Cambridge rolls over Canterbury for title

TAMPA — Much like it has done the entire season, Cambridge dominated a district opponent Friday night.

Only this time, it was for the district championship.

The Lancers made easy work of Canterbury and cruised to a 64-28 victory to clinch the Class A, District 9 title.

Cambridge (19-7) beat its district opponents by an average of 45.6 points during the regular season and was never threatened in any of its three district playoff games this week.

The Lancers dominated the Crusaders (11-14) from the opening tip and jumped out to a 24-4 lead in a first quarter that saw them miss just two shots from the field.

"We kind of got the mind-set that when we started winning these games by so many points that each game still makes us better since we know each team we face in the future will be that much better," Cambridge guard Spencer Smith said.

It was the Lancers' 14th win in their past 15 games.

Cameron Brown led all scorers with 23 points on 11-of-13 shooting. Senior Luke Rogers added 17, and Smith chipped in 10 for the Lancers.

"When we're playing together and everyone plays their role as they did tonight, we're pretty good," Lancers coach Scott Thompson said.

"And we know if we do that, we can play with any of these teams down the line."
