Boys Hoops: MB, NMB win to set up first-place match

nmbhoops-30layupThe Myrtle Beach High football team is accustomed to six-game winning streaks. The boys basketball team? Not so much, at least not this season. In fact, it the Seahawks (9-12 overall, 6-3 Region 7-3A) won only three times in their first 15 games.

But the amazing turnaround continued Tuesday night as the Seahawks rallied to defeat visiting Georgetown 60-48, maintaining a  three-way share for first place with North Myrtle Beach and Wilson. The Seahawks face the Chiefs on Thursday night with at least a first-place tie for the region title at stake in the rivalry.

Myrtle Beach trailed 20-8 after the first period but cut the deficit in half by intermission at 36-30. The Seahawks turned up the defense to take a 44-41 edge entering the final frame and pulled away to create some more drama atop the region standings with one game remaining.

* North Myrtle Beach 72, Lake City 54: Maurice Finch erupted for a career-high 25 points to lead the Chiefs (9-12, 6-3) to a huge region road victory over the Panthers.

North Myrtle Beach remains tied for first place in Region 7-3A heading into Thursday’s home game against Myrtle Beach.

* Wilson 51, St. James 26: The Sharks (11-11, 5-4) fell from a tie for first place into sole possession of fourth with a disappointing showing on the road against the Tigers, who remain atop the Region 7-3A standings with Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach with identical 6-3 marks.

Wilson outscored St. James 14-2 in the first quarter and it never got any closer. The ice-cold Sharks were also held to only two points in the third quarter. Jackson Hurston accounted for half of the Sharks’ offensive output with 13 points. The Sharks hope to heat up against Lake City in Thursday’s season finale.

* Carolina Forest 75, Socastee 71: The Panthers (15-7, 6-3) had to battle past the last-place Braves (7-16, 1-8) but managed to claim a share of first place in Region 6-4A with South Florence and Sumter with one game remaining. Carolina Forest to rival Conway on Friday.

Duane Moss led the Panthers with 19 points, Damon McDowell aded 13, Richmond Collier tallied 11, and Ismael Garcia had 10 to lead a balanced effort.

* Conway 49, South Florence 43: The Tigers (14-7, 3-6) found themselves in the unusual position of beating the first-place team in Region 6-4A but being eliminated from playoff contention due to circumstances outside of their gym.

* Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach 71, Pee Dee Academy 43: The Saints advance to the finals of the Region III-AA tournament with a convincing win over Pee Dee Academy.

The Saints (14-10) were led by Michael Green with 22 points and Bernard Jones with 12 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Jalen Matthews had 13 points, Jay Williams added nine and Robert Guyton chipped in eight points and five boards.
