Boys basketball: Chamberlain 62, Sickles 57

TAMPA — Aggressive was the best word to describe Chamberlain's effort Friday as the Chiefs beat host Sickles 62-57 to remain undefeated.

From the opening tip, the Chiefs, who were without one of their starters, made it clear their plan was to be aggressive on both ends of the floor, especially on offense. Chamberlain continuously attacked the basket, resulting in a seven-point advantage at the free-throw line by halftime. Chamberlain finished the game with as many made free throws (15) as Sickles had in total attempts.

"That's been our mindset from the beginning of this entire season, not just for this game," coach Chris Snyde said. "We wouldn't be 6-0 without it."

Sickles (6-2) got off to a good start, leading by two at the end of the first quarter. But Chamberlain's Reggie Hart connected on three of his team-high 24 points at the beginning of the second quarter to give Chamberlain the lead for good.

Rashawn Rembert tried his best to keep the Gryphons in the game, scoring a game-high 27 points. But even he couldn't top the offensive display put on by Hart and Eric Storts. The duo carried the Chiefs throughout, combining for 46 points.

Storts carried the team down the stretch, scoring 16 of his 22 points in the second half. Storts needs only 39 more points to reach 1,000 for his career.

"Those are definitely our go-to guys," Snyde said. "Especially Eric, who I think is the most underrated player in the county. He can do it all for us."

After trailing by 13 early in the fourth quarter, Sickles went on a 7-0 run to make it 50-44. But after a timeout, Chamberlain quickly responded with a basket and was never threatened again.
