Myrtle Beach was led by Brooks Swanson with 16 points and Anthony McNiel added 14. Socastee’s Koel Cutler tallied a game-high 21 points.

* North Myrtle Beach 73, Wilson 53: The No. 8-ranked Chiefs (16-4, 5-1 region) scored a big victory on the road over the Tigers to maintain second place in the region. They face Socastee on Wednesday with second place in the region at stake.
