Boys Hoops: Tigers defeat Panthers; MB beats MC

conhoops-5Having wrapped up the No. 3 seed in next week’s playoffs, the Conway High boys basketball team had little to play for in Tuesday night’s regular season finale. But with arch-rival Carolina Forest coming to town, the stakes hardly mattered.

The Tigers (15-5 overall, 6-4 Region 6-5A) rallied back from a first-half deficit to down the Panthers 61-54 and deal their rivals’ playoff hopes a serious blow.

The Panthers (9-14, 3-7), who were led by Richmond Collier’s game-high 26 points, must now rely on an at-large playoff berth, a long shot after being swept in the season series by Conway.

The Tigers trailed by nine points right out of the gate but cut the deficit to one point at halftime. Conway pulled away in the second half, led by Jimmy Nichols’ 21 points.

* Myrtle Beach 50, Marlboro County 43: The Seahawks broke open a tight game in the fourth quarter to get the win over the Bulldogs and set up a key region showdown in their season finale.

Myrtle Beach’s Robert Swanson scored a team-high 18 points and Emorie Knox added 11.

The Seahawks (10-10, 4-3) host rival North Myrtle Beach on Thursday with the winner taking second place in the league and earning a first-round home playoff game.

* Wilson 78, St. James 29: The Sharks (7-17, 1-7) saw their season come to a close with a loss to the No. 1-ranked Tigers.

Trey Myers led St. James with nine points. The Sharks failed to make the playoffs based on a tiebreaker with Marlboro County.

* Sumter 73, Socastee 52: The Braves (12-12, 4-6) closed out the regular season with a tough loss to the Gamecocks, but they carry a No. 4 seed into next week’s Class 5A playoffs.
