It was a battle between Pasco and Hernando County on Wednesday as Sunlake visited Springstead.

Both programs have been steady all season long. Sunlake was ahead by double digits for much of the game but Springstead made it interesting late, ultimately falling 56-51 at home. The two schools now both sit at 16-7 respectively. 

Here is a look at some lessons learned from the matchup.

Guard play is on Sunlake's side

The ball movement from Sunlake in this game was fun to watch. The Seahawks have many rotational pieces that can make it happen between 2020 guards Justin Lucena and Matthew McDonald and 2021 5'10" guard David Barr. Lucena and McDonald each had nine points while Barr finished with a team-best 12 points. Lucena is a fancy ballhandler and a confident one at that. McDonald is a shifty guard who likes to take on contact and push the ball up-tempo. As for Barr, he's the best shooter of the trio and can hurt you with a quick jumper. The guard play will help Sunlake stick around in the playoffs.

Torain is blazing fast
