Winter Park Lake Howell left no doubt why they are nationally-ranked and the Class 5A state champions.
Friday night at the Lakeland Center, the Silver Hawks recorded the largest blowout in state championship game history, by beating St. Petersburg Lakewood 85-42.
And against a Lakewood program that is no doormat.
Lakewood has won 2 state titles and been to the final four 5 times since 1997.
And the absolute pasting Lake Howell gave them was ridiculous.
No one in the 85-year history of this tournament....yes folks, going back to 1922...had beaten another team senseless as badly as Lake Howell did tonight. And we're talking a few games a year dating back 85 years.
The rich get richer in Gainesville with Chandler Parsons and Nick Calathes going to UF. Those boys can ball with the best of them.
