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.

  2. 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.

    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.

  5. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.
