Jovaughn Douglas and the Seminole High's boys' basketball team advanced to the regional finals in the state's highest class for the third time in four seasons with a 69-60 victory against visiting Oviedo on Tuesday night. In winning its 17th consecutive game, Seminole (23-7) got double-figure scoring from three players to beat the Lions (22-8) for the fourth time this season. The Seminoles will travel to play Evans on Friday in the region final. Oviedo led three times in the third quarter, but Seminole used a 7-2 run at the close of the third quarter to take a 49-45 lead. The Lions pulled within two, 49-47, but Seminole went on an 8-0 run, with five points coming from Douglas, and never looked back. The Seminole will face Evans (22-7) in the final four.

The Alonso Ravens (24-5), who set a record for most victories in one year - including their first playoff win - challenged defending Class 9A state titlist Steven Burr and Orlando Oak Ridge (19-5) into the fourth quarter before losing 72-58 in a region semifinal. Oak Ridge will take on rival Osceola (23-7) on Friday in the final four of Class 9A. This will be the third consecutive boys basketball region final showdown between the two teams. We have a potential all Virgin Islands final if both Seminole and Oak Ridge wins.

Jahsean Corbett and Poinciana fell to Eustis, 58-56, in double overtime in a Class 6A, Region 4 boys basketball semifinal on Tuesday night. Eustis (21-8) will travel to play Fort Lauderdale Stranahan in Friday's region final. Poinciana (19-9), which defeated Eustis 56-54 in the district finals two weeks ago, dominated the first half play leading by as many as 12 points. Eustis outscored the Eagles 20 to 9 and forged a 38-34 lead. Corbett had 14

TEXAS
At the 6A level, Shoemaker played hard right to the final buzzer but couldn't beat Rockwall. The Grey Wolves trailed much of the night to a good Rockwall team. They were down as many as a dozen in the second half but rallied late in the game. J'Wan Roberts led the rally for Shoemaker (32-6). Missed opportunities down the stretch cost them a chance to tie or win. Shoemaker's season ends with the 58-57 loss. Roberts left it all out on the floor for his team as he finished with 23 points, nine rebounds, five blocks and an assist.

Aubree Raimer and the Greeley Central rallied for a wild, 42-38, win over the Green Mountain Rams in an intense and highly charged Class 4A Sweet 16 game. The victory was Central's 19th-straight, moved the Wildcats to 24-1 overall and into a spot in the Class 4A Great 8 later this week. Seventh-seeded Greeley Central will play at No. 2 Holy Family (20-5) on Friday in Broomfield. Game time is to be determined. Holy Family advanced with a 61-46 win over The Classical Academy in another Sweet 16 game on Tuesday.

Electra Allembert and the New Hope Academy girls' basketball program traveled to Tennessee this past weekend and announced itself to the rest of the country. The second-year program won the Division I bracket at the National Association of Christian Athletes championship tournament.
'This was a big weekend for the whole program,' Coach Sam Caldwell said shortly after he landed back in the Washington area.
Caldwell is no stranger to the NACA tournament, having participated in it, and won it, many times as coach at Riverdale Baptist. Now in his second year at New Hope, he has helped build from scratch a nationally renowned program.
As an independent private school in Landover Hills, the team doesn't have a traditional league playoff structure, so tournaments such as NACA's provide a chance for New Hope to win hardware. Caldwell said that the many tournaments and events the Tigers played this season helped prepare them to win four games in Tennessee.

CHICAGO - The on-court portion of the draft combine wrapped up on Friday, with two more scrimmages giving prospects a chance to perform in front of the entire league. As a whole, five-on-five play was heavily watered down this year as a vast majority of potential first-round picks opted not to play, aiming to protect their draft stock. Regardless, there were a number of intriguing players who benefited this week. There were also some guys who struggled. Some of the more noteworthy perform...   [read more]
