Class A region girls basketball: Turnover-prone Cambridge falls to Sarasota Christian

Facing a team that advanced to last year's Class A girls basketball championship game turned out to be too much as Cambridge's dream season ended Saturday at the hands of host Sarasota Christian, 71-26 in a Class A region final.

The Lancers (14-11) committed 25 turnovers, flustered by a Sarasota Christian 1-3-1 halfcourt trap that led to a 35-13 deficit.

Cambridge couldn't overcome the poor start. The Lancers were outscored 17-1 in the first quarter, committing 10 turnovers and managing just eight shots.

Lancers sophomore Rachael Bode (11 points) was the only Cambridge player to score in double figures. Chachere Moore added five points and Nikki Taylor scored four. The Lancers managed just nine field goals on the night and were just 5-for-10 from the free throw line.
