Blake and Armwood easily advance to final

Published February 19, 2004

TAMPA - Blake used a 34-point third quarter to breeze past Newsome 80-45 and advances to play Tampa Bay Tech, a 67-43 winner against Armwoood, in the final on Saturday.

All five Blake starters scored in double digits, led by 19 from Jeremy Black. Charles Trigg finished with 18 and Marcus Gunn and Gilet Chevalier each added 13.

Newsome's only lead came on the first basket of the game by Todd Dinneny (16 points). The Yellow Jackets never trailed after that, outrebounding the Wolves 32-16 for the game.

Five of Blake's 11 3-pointers came during its third-quarter outburst. Trigg led the way, hitting four from beyond the arc while Chevalier connected on three.

"We didn't have much focus in the first half," Blake coach Winston Davis said. "But in the second half we got in a good rhythm shooting the ball and got some good looks."

Top-seeded Armwood was upset in the other semifinal, losing to a Tampa Bay Tech team the Hawks had beaten twice during the regular season.

Tampa Bay Tech's Demetrius Edwards and Devon Shorter each scored 18.

"I wasn't surprised that Tech beat Armwood, but I was surprised by the margin of victory," Davis said.

"(The Titans) will be on their home court (on Saturday), and I promise you they will come out with intensity."
