5A: Largo runs out of rallies vs. Barron Collier

Published Feb. 23, 2006

Largo got to the state tournament by showing an uncanny ability to rally from big deficits.

This time, the Packers fell behind late and couldn't do much about it.

A tight game got away as Largo's first ever Class 5A semifinal appearance came up short in a 60-50 loss to Naples Barron Collier.

During a back-and-forth first half in which neither team held more than a three-point lead, the Cougars were able to do just enough to pull out a 28-27 lead.

Barron Collier (30-2) kept it going in the second half by executing its half-court offense to perfection. Three Cougars scored in double figures - Kasey Will (16 points), Kelsey Assarian (13) and Erin Zampell (11).

Alexis Henry had 23 points, including four 3-pointers, to lead Largo, which finished 26-2.
