Freedom's Emery commits to Tulane

Freedom forward Taylor Emery, one of Tampa Bay's most prolific scorers the past two seasons, announced on Twitter her intentions to play basketball at Tulane.

Emery made an official visit to Tulane the weekend of June 23 and orally committed Sunday. She chose the Green Wave over Mississippi, Georgia Tech and Seton Hall.

Emery, a 5-foot-10 slasher who also likes to stay busy defensively and has worked diligently on developing her outside shot, averaged 25.9 points a game last season to lead Hillsborough County, including a 41-point effort against Tampa Bay Tech.

Going into her fourth season as a starter, the incoming senior has a career average of 21.2 points a game, and is likely to join the exclusive 2,000-point club this season.

Northeast: Guard Lisa Waithe has committed to NAIA program William Penn University in Oskaloosa, Iowa. Waithe played in all 31 games as a senior for the Vikings and averaged 3.9 points per game. She was a Tampa Bay Times all-county honorable mention selection and also played in the Pinellas vs. Hillsborough senior all-star game.

Seminole: Catcher Doug Borgh has committed to play at Hillsborough Community College. Borgh hit .224 as a senior with 17 RBIs, but he was best defensively. He threw out 94 percent of potential base stealers and was named the PCAC north's first-team catcher.

  3. Bucs journal: Kicker Nick Folk has up and downs against Jaguars

    Bucs

    JACKSONVILLE — If the Bucs had hoped for a drama-free night in their kicking game, they'll have to wait another week.

    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Doug Martin gets the Bucs’ only touchdown  on a 2-yard run, squeaking past linebacker Telvin Smith in the first quarter. He has five carries for 30 yards.
  5. Rays journal: Archer has strong outing, with two mistakes

    TORONTO — Two pitches RHP Chris Archer didn't execute are the ones that stood out Thursday as Josh Donaldson hit them out of the park. But the two solo home runs aside, Archer turned in a sterling outing that went atop the pile of good pitching the Rays keep wasting.
