BROOKSVILLE – Jordan Baxter had come up big for Nature Coast’s boys basketball team in another pivotal postseason contest, but the only numbers that truly mattered to the junior were on the scoreboard. The 6-foot-3 forward scored 10 points and pulled down 12 rebounds, but the Sharks lost to visiting Zephyrhills in a Class 5A, Region II semifinal on Tuesday night, 61-51.
“It wasn’t good enough to get the win,” Baxter said. “I just feel really bad for the seniors. I’m not happy with it at all.”
