INDIAN ROCKS — Not only does the annual Indian Rocks Christian holiday tournament have an international flavor this year, but all four teams in today's finals are visitors to the West Coast.

To simplify the brackets, the girls championship will feature Jacksonville against Cleveland, and the boys championship will feature Miami against Canada.

"This is a pretty solid tournament," said Indian Rocks sophomore Sean Culkin, who scored 24 in a semifinal loss Tuesday against Florida Christian of Miami. "We came in every day to watch (Miami) play, but we got out to a really bad start, got rattled and started rushing everything."

The Indian Rocks boys were one of three Pinellas County teams alive in the semifinals, but all three lost. The Indian Rocks girls were beaten by Gilmour Academy (Ohio) 44-36.

The Tarpon Springs boys held an 18-10 lead over St. Ignatius of Loyola (Canada), but the Hawks went 6-for-6 from the 3-point line in the third quarter to take command. St. Ignatius finished the game 12-for-20 from long distance and won 73-62.

Tarpon Springs junior Jacques Bourdon had a great semifinal with 28 points while teammate C.J. Bargman chipped in 11.

The Indian Rocks girls were led by three players with eight points apiece: Kristen Scholl, Rachel Burnett and Jessica Logemann.

The girls final is set for 7 p.m. In the consolation final, Indian Rocks will face St. John Neumann of Naples at 5:30 p.m.

The boys final is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. In the consolation final, Indian Rocks will host Tarpon Springs at 4 p.m.
