Boys Hoops: Tigers nip CF; Braves manhandle Sharks

conhoops-4layup (2)The Conway High boys basketball team got a pair of late game-winning free throws from Jalen Hennigan and Christian Jeffords to knock off rival Carolina Forest 83-81 in a wild finish on Friday night.

The visiting Panthers came back to tie the game in the final 5 seconds when Parker Helgerson was fouled on a potential game-tying 3-pointer. He calmly knocked down all three free throws to seemingly send the game into overtime.

But the Panthers were whistled for a foul and the Carolina Forest bench was called for a technical foul in the final ticks. Hennigan and Jeffords hit one free throw apiece to lead the Tigers to a key Region 6-4A victory.

The Panthers still managed to make it interesting when Helgerson stole the inbound pass and got off a desperation heave as the buzzer sounded. The Panthers argued for a foul but none was called as they lost their second straight after winning six in a row.

Hennigan finished with a game-high 27 points and Jefford added 22. Carolina Forest got 20 points from Ryan Yurachek.

* Socastee 54, St. James 39: The Braves (11-7, 3-1) had an easy time knocking off the visiting Sharks (6-12, 1-3) to claim a share of second place in the Region 7-3A standings.

Socastee jumped out to a 33-14 halftime lead and the Sharks didn’t get much closer. Koel Cutler scored a game-high 14 and Dylan Thompson added nine for the Braves. Dakota Holmes led St. James with 14 points.

* Faith Christian 73, Christian Academy 72: The Saints suffered their first loss to a SCISA opponent all season despite making a huge comeback bid in the fourth quarter.

Trailing by 18 points with 6 minutes remaining, CA battled back to take a three-point lead in the final seconds before foul trouble finally caught up to the Saints. Faith hit late free throws to escape with the win and hand the Saints (11-6, 5-1) their first region loss.

Austin Guyton and Bernard Jones scored 23 points apiece and each had double-doubles with 10 and 11 rebounds, respectively.

Cole Gore grabbed 11 boards, six points and three steals but was one of the key players to foul out late. Joshua Lang and Garrett Richards also fouled out of the game.
