Lakeland, FL - The Rickards boys basketball team is heading back to the Class 3A state championship game.

Coach Eli Bryant and the Raiders played in the 3A State Semifinals Wednesday night against Pine Crest High School out of Fort Lauderdale, FL. The defending 3A Champs needed overtime to finally distance themselves from their Final Four opponent; the end of regulation had the game knotted up at 61 apiece. But when the final OT buzzer sounded, the scoreboard read: Rickards 73, Pine Crest 67.

The win means Rickards will play Thursday night in Lakeland for the Class 3A State Championship trophy and a chance at winning back-to-back State Titles.
