Boys Hoops: SJ tops NMB at buzzer; MB wins in OT

sjhoops-23St. James guard Jordan Fields hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 2.8 seconds left on the clock to knock off host North Myrtle Beach 55-52 on Friday night and take over sole possession of first place in Region 7-3A.

After Jackson Hurston’s driving layup was blocked, Fields hauled in the tap-out and calmly drilled the trey to give the Sharks (10-9 overall, 4-2 region) a big revenge victory over the Chiefs (6-12, 2-3). North Myrtle Beach won the first matchup at the Shark Tank 62-46, but this one would prove much closer.

St. James jumped out to double-digit lead in the first half, but the Chiefs rallied to it at 25-all. But, just like the final horn, the Sharks hit a 3 at the buzzer – this time by Zach Werba – to take a 28-25 halftime lead.

The two teams battled back in forth as the game was tied at 52-all over the final minute. Both teams missed the front end of 1-and-1s that would have given them the lead, but it was Fields’ buzzer-beating bomb that proved the difference.

Hurston finished with a game-high 21 points, Werba tallied 13 and Jordan Furlough chipped in 10 for the Sharks. Josh Livingston led the Chiefs with 12 points, Jason Harper added 11 and Maurice Finch had 10.

* Myrtle Beach 53, Wilson 52 (OT): The Seahawks (6-13, 3-3) had to work overtime to defeat the visiting Tigers and claim their third consecutive league victory.

Adam Zam scored 12 points, including the game-winning layup late in the fourth, and Robert Swanson added 11 to lead the Seahawks in scoring, but Myrtle Beach used a total team effort, especially on defense, to pull out the hard-fought win. Myrtle Beach welcomes Lake City on Tuesday.

* Sumter 49, Conway 47: The Tigers suffered a tough region loss on the road to the Gamecocks, who took over sole possession of first place in Region 6-4A.

* South Florence 72, Carolina Forest 54: The Panthers suffered a tough region loss on the road to the Bruins to fall from a share of first place in Region 6-4A. Carolina Forest (13-6, 4-2) plays host to West Florence on Tuesday.

Carolina Forest was led by Duane Moos with 15 points. Xavier Lynch added 11, Damon McDowell scored 10, and Richmond Collier chipped in nine for the Panthers.

* West Florence 80, Socastee 47: The Braves (6-14, 0-6) were blown out by the Bruins to keep Socastee winless in region play. The Braves play host to Conway on Tuesday.

* Gray Collegiate 79, Christian Academy 61: The Saints (12-10) saw their nine-game winning streak come to an end, but played a much closer game than Gray’s 42-point blowout in their December meeting.
