Boys Hoops: No. 3 Tigers falter; MB rallies past NMB

It took a little time for the Myrtle Beach High boys basketball team to get rolling in Tuesday night’s second-place matchup with region rival North Myrtle Beach. But once the Seahawks got it in gear, they blew past the Chiefs for a 63-55 victory over the visitors.

North Myrtle Beach hit six 3-pointers in the first quarter en route to a 24-9 lead over the shellshocked Seahawks. But the Chiefs were held to only two more treys the rest of the way as Myrtle Beach clawed its way back.

The Seahawks cut the halftime deficit to 33-30 behind Jayce Allen’s spark, then captured the lead at the end of the third quarter at 46-45. The game remained tight until the final minutes. The big difference came at the free throw line, with Myrtle Beach hitting 13 of 19 (7 of 10 in the fourth quarter) and the Chiefs only 8 of 18 (0 for 5 in the final frame).

Myrtle Beach used a balanced scoring attack, with Allen finishing with 16 points and Emorie Knox and Robert Swanson adding 15 apiece. Swanson was honored for scoring his 1,000th career point. North Myrtle Beach was led by Cooper Chandler’s 15 points and Tyron Stockdale’s 14.

Myrtle Beach (8-7, 3-1) returns home Friday to face No. 1-ranked Wilson. The Chiefs (5-8, 2-2) travel to St. James.

* Sumter 58, Conway 42: The No. 3-ranked Tigers (18-2, 4-1 Region 6-5A) suffered their first region loss of the season to the Gamecocks, who are tied with Conway atop the league standings.

After posting a 22-point victory over Sumter two weeks ago, the Tigers saw the tables turned on the road. Jimmy Nichols led Conway with 23 points but it wasn’t enough.

The Tigers play host to South Florence on Friday.

* Carolina Forest 69, South Florence 67 (OT): The Panthers worked overtime on the road to get their first Region 6-5A victory over the Bruins.

The Panthers used back-to-back 3-pointers in the extra period to put the game away. Matt Beale led Carolina Forest with 22 points, Kyle Watkins had 19, and T-Jay Brunson added 15.

The Panthers are at home against Socastee on Friday night.

* West Florence 91, Socastee 69: The Braves suffered a tough region loss on the road to the red-hot Knights.

Jay Williams led the Braves with 16 points, Kendrell Generette tallied 15, and Jonathan Wright and Andrew Gardner added 12 points apiece.
