“We’re definitely getting our chemistry on the floor,” Frontino said. “We’re making sure we cohesively play together.”

Alesha Jenkins scored with 8:16 to go to give Barry a 48-31 lead. The Bucs extended their lead to 21 with 6:21 to play when Colette Eule sank a free throw, but the Sailfish trimmed it to 52-35 on Kimyatta McIntosh’s layup.

The Bucs outrebounded the Sailfish, 46-26.
