A region basketball: Seacrest Country Day 51, Cambridge 49

Class A

Lancers dispatched on late 3

NAPLES — Cambridge and Seacrest Country Day were evenly matched on paper, which translated to a close game on the court. A last-second 3-pointer by Seacrest's Austin Hunt made the difference as the Stingrays topped the Lancers 51-49 in a Class A region semifinal Tuesday night.

Cambridge (20-7) almost pulled it out as Spencer Smith drove in for a layup to give the Lancers a 49-48 lead with 13.7 seconds left.

"It was a tough game for either team to lose," Cambridge coach Scott Thompson said. "It came down to who made more plays, and they made one more play than we did. Our kids had prepared well for this one over the last three days or so.

"We owe a lot to our success tonight — and all season — to our seniors. They came in as eighth-graders when we'd been 2-20 the year before."

Smith led all scorers with 17 points.

The Stingrays (23-6) led much of the first half, which ended with Clay Bello's wild 3-pointer from near midcourt before the buzzer for a 24-20 lead. The Lancers put together a 21-8 run in the second half and led by seven before Seacrest rallied.
