A region basketball: Cambridge 58, Southwest Christian Academy 44

TAMPA — Cambridge coach Scott Thompson couldn't have asked for a better defensive effort against Southwest Christian Academy.

The Lancers played "great" team defense — holding guard Colton Catto, who entered averaging 23.9 points, to six — en route to a 58-44 victory in the Class A region quarterfinals Thursday night.

"If (Catto's) playing well, their team is playing well," Thompson said. "We don't play the junk defense. We match up with you man to man, and we challenge our guys to guard people. We played great team defense."

The Lancers (20-6) finished the game on a 16-7 run, led by senior forward Cameron Brown, who finished with a game-high 17 points. But Southwest Christian erased a 10-point deficit at halftime to keep it close. The Kings trailed only 38-35 at the end of the third quarter.

The Kings frustrated the Lancers at times playing a 2-3 zone, getting Brown into foul trouble in the fourth quarter. But that's when Thompson's squad tightened up on Catto and the rest of the team.
