Boys Hoops: Chiefs claim battle, Seahawks win war

North Myrtle Beach won the battle but Myrtle Beach won the war in Thursday night’s showdown for second place in Region 7-4A.

The Chiefs downed the Seahawks 64-61 to even the season series and give both teams identical 6-2 records in region play. Myrtle Beach wins the tiebreaker and No. 2 seed headed into next week’s state playoffs by virtue of margin of victory.

North Myrtle Beach needed to win by nine points or more to steal a first-round playoff game at home. The Chiefs threatened to do just that, taking a 52-46 advantage into the fourth quarter. But Myrtle Beach made a late run at winning it outright before falling short.

North Myrtle Beach’s Jevon Griffin led all scorers with 21 points, including five 3-pointers and a 4-for-5 fourth quarter at the free throw line, . A trio of teammates joined him in double figures – Tyron Stockdale with 15 points, Cooper Chandler with 13, and Cason McClendon added 10.

Myrtle Beach was led by Emorie Knox’s 19 points, while teammates Robert Swanson and Oneil McBride tallied 12 apiece.

The Chiefs will open the postseason on the road next Wednesday, while Myrtle Beach will host.

* Conway 66, South Florence 28: After getting knocked off earlier this week in a loss that cost it a shot at the region championship, the Conway showed it knows how to get back up off the mat Thursday with a dominating victory over host South Florence.

The No. 2-ranked Tigers (20-3 overall, 7-2 Region 6-5A) took an overtime loss Tuesday that delivered the title and top seed to Sumter. Conway settles for the No. 2 seed but took its frustrations out on the Bruins in the regular season finale.

Conway’s Jimmy Nichols almost single-handedly outscored the Bruins with 25 points. The Tigers will host a first-round playoff game next Wednesday.
