A-9 district basketball: Cambridge 56, Carrollwood Day 46

ST. PETERSBURG — Cameron Brown scored all 16 of his points during the second half to help Cambridge beat Carrollwood Day 56-46 in the Class A, District 9 final on Saturday.

In the regular-season matchup, Carrollwood Day held Brown to nine points in a 47-45 victory. Saturday, Cambridge coach Scott Thompson complimented Brown for his unselfish play early, when he was used more as a decoy.

"We weren't prepared the first time they played that box-and-one," Thompson said. "(Saturday), we made them guard us man-to-man."

Turnovers helped put the Patriots (15-8) in a 14-point hole in the second quarter. But a short jumper by Matt Phillips sparked an 11-0 run that included consecutive layups by Adonis Welch and a Michael Filer 3-pointer.

The Lancers (19-6) led by three at halftime. Brown made their first two baskets of the third. Spencer Smith, who scored a game-high 22, had their next eight points to help build a 13-point lead.

Consecutive 3-pointers by Filer and Luke Hunter brought the Patriots to within 47-44 late. But Smith made four free throws, and Brown made a layup as time ran out to seal the victory.

Filer led the Patriots with 20 points.

  3. Trevor Plouffe is DFA'd by Rays, Kittredge recalled for now


    INF Trevor Plouffe didn't do much with the opportunity the Rays gave him, and time ran out Tuesday when he was designated for assignment after the game.

    Plouffe hit just .178, with one homer and two RBIs, in 31 games for the Rays, his primary playing time from starting at first or third against lefties.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off right knee surgery, often takes it easy on the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single, finishing with three more hits.
