Boys basketball: Wellington boys stop Atlantic in regional

The Wellington boys basketball team followed up its fourth consecutive district championship with a convincing win Thursday night in the first round of the regional playoffs.

Trent Frazier scored a game-high 26 points, and Sage Chen-Young added 14 points and six rebounds to lead the Wolverines to a 78-53 victory against visiting Atlantic in a Class 9A regional quarterfinal.

With the win, Wellington (25-3) advances to play Lake Worth on Tuesday in the regional semifinals.

The Eagles finished their season 18-10.

“It’s always nice to win during tournament time,” Wolverines coach Matt Colin said.

Wellington got off to a scorching start, hitting its first six shots, plus a free throw, to take a 16-0 lead just 2:20 into the game.

The Wolverines later built a 17-point advantage before the Eagles began chipping away behind R.J. Duhart.

Atlantic got within 21-13 before Wellington closed the quarter leading 26-15.

Wellington continued shooting well to open the second quarter, with Bryan Williams and Niko Toledo particularly effective from the outside.

The Wolverines led by 18 points before Atlantic narrowed the gap to 42-31 by halftime. Frazier led all scorers with 14 points at the midpoint. Williams had nine points, all on 3-pointers.

“We got off to a fast start, and we were able to give ourselves a little cushion,” Colin said.

The big lead proved beneficial for Wellington, which endured a scoring drought midway through the third quarter.

Corey Gammage and the Eagles cut the Wolverines’ lead to 49-41 before Wellington clamped down on defense. Frazier and Chen-Young then helped Wellington pull away.

The Wolverines ended the quarter with a 15-point lead, and held Atlantic to six points in the fourth quarter to pull away.

Frazier finished with a team-high nine rebounds for Wellington, while Toledo added 11 points.

Gammage had a team-high 15 points for Atlantic, while Duhart added 12.
