Class A region basketball: Cambridge wakes up in second half

Class A Lancers wake up in second half

TAMPA — Cambridge used a big third quarter to break open a tight game against Walker Memorial Academy en route to a 48-33 win to advance to the Class A region semifinals.

Clinging to a 15-11 halftime lead, sophomore Rachael Bode caught fire to start the third quarter as the Lancers scored more points in the quarter than in the entire first half.

Bode scored 11 points in a four-minute stretch to help give Cambridge a commanding 15-point lead midway through the quarter.

"It was definitely a momentum changer," Lancers coach John Wilson said. "Bode hit a couple shots and with us being at home, it just built from there."

Bode finished with a game-high 17 points. Melissa Olsson added 12 and fellow junior Chachere Moore had nine.

Kristelle Lagabon led the Eagles (14-8) with 10 points.

Cambridge (13-10) faces Seffner Christian for the fourth time this season on Tuesday.
