Boys Hoops: Tigers fly past Chiefs; MB grounds Braves

conhoops-33rebThe Conway High boys basketball team narrowly avoided a three-game losing streak by making a big second-half comeback against visiting North Myrtle Beach on Friday night.

The Tigers (11-2) outscored the Chiefs (9-4) by a 24-7 margin in the fourth quarter to claim a 57-45 victory. Conway used a 32-10 overall run in the second half after a cold start.

North Myrtle Beach took a 24-17 halftime after Conway couldn’t seem to buy a basket in the first half. The Tigers trailed 29-21 late in the third period before finally getting hot from the field.

The Tigers tied it up at 29-all before the Chiefs hit a go-ahead three, but it was all Conway from there. Jalen Hennigan, who was held scoreless during the Tigers’ cold spell, scored all 15 of his points down the stretch. Teammates Bryan Edwards and Benard Venable added 12 points apiece. North Myrtle Beach was led by Matthew Stanaland with 11 points.

Conway opens Region 6-4A play on Friday at rival Socastee. North Myrtle Beach opens Region 7-3A play at home against St. James on Monday.

* Myrtle Beach 57, Socastee 45: The Seahawks got back on the winning track with an easy victory over the host Braves.

Adam Zam scored the first 11 points of the game for the Seahawks (4-10) and single-handedly outscored the Braves in the first period as Myrtle Beach led 13-8 after one quarter of play. The Seahawks took the second quarter 14-7 to take a 27-15 halftime advantage.

Powered by TJ Simmons’ game-high 22 points, Socastee played even with Myrtle Beach in the second half but couldn’t overcome the early deficit it dug for itself. The Braves play host to Conway on Tuesday in the Region 6-4A opener for both teams.

Myrtle Beach was led by Zam and Bryce Schneider with 13 points apiece and Will Gray chipped in 10. The Lady Seahawks open Region 7-3A on Saturday night at Wilson.

* St. James 81, Waccamaw 64: Following a roller coaster 24 hours earlier this week, the Sharks got back on track with an easy victory over the host Warriors.

After upsetting Conway on Tuesday only to be upset by Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach on Wednesday, the Sharks (9-2) got a one-day break and a breather before traveling to Waccamaw (6-5).

St. James led throughout behind a pair of game-high scoring performances by Jordan Fields and Jackson Hurston, who tallied 20 points apiece. Haywood Brandon added 13 points and some solid work in the paint to propel the Sharks, who travel to North Myrtle Beach on Monday for their Region 7-3A opener.

* Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach 68, Dillon Christian 28: The Saints (12-4 overall, 3-0 region) cruised past the Warriors sto stay undefeated in league play.

Josh Lang led the Saints in scoring with 15 points and added six rebounds and four steals. Michael Green had 13 points, eight boards and assists and four steals, and Robert Guyton added 11 points.
