The Tars bounced back from two high-scoring losses with two monster wins of their own last week, trouncing Nova Southeastern 86-67 and Lynn 92-80 in back-to-back games.

Connor McKim neared a triple-double against Lynn with 27 points, seven rebounds and eight assists with Jeff Merton just behind with 18 points and nine boards.

The Tars (15-10, 9-6) travel to Tampa for a 4 p.m. tipoff Saturday.

The lady Tars haven’t seen a loss in nine-straight games, edging Nova Southeastern 63-59 and handling Lynn 61-50. Marie Gilbert scored 14 points and grabbed five rebounds against Nova, as the Tars were out-rebounded and missed every three-pointer they attempted, but still held on for the win.

Coming up next for the Tars, it’s a trip to Tampa tipping off at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Edgewater girls’ basketball

After the Edgewater girls stunned Auburndale 68-52 to clinch the Class 7A District 6 win, they’ve been on a tear, edging New Smyrna Beach 47-43 on Feb. 9 to make their way into the regional semifinal round against Father Lopez Tuesday night, which they also won.

Having punched their ticket to the regional championship game, they’ll face Land O’ Lakes’ Sunlake on the road at 7 p.m. Friday.
