Conway duo tops Fab Five; playoff picture takes shape

A pair of Conway seniors head this week’s Coastal Basketball Coaches Assocation “Fab Five” list following a big week for the Tigers.

Reggie Bonner averaged a double-double of 26 points and 13 rebounds per game and teammate Kahmil Cooper tallied 20 points and five boards over the same period.

Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach senior Kendall Henry also made the list by posting 18 points and 11 rebounds. Loris junior Tyree Floyd Jr. (21 ppg 11.5 rpg) and Carvers Bay senior Deshaun Aiken, who Scored his 1,000th career point to become the Bears’ all-time leading scorer, round out the Fab Five.

The new state rankings also came ou Monday, with the North Myrtle Beach girls and boys the lone Grand Strand rankings in the top 10. The Lady Chiefs (20-2 overall, 7-0 Region 7-3A) remain at No. 4 while the Chiefs (18-4, 5-2) slipped slightly to No. 9. Both teams are in position to clinch region titles this week.

The North Myrtle Beach girls already own a share of the region title and can secure sole possession of first place with a win over Socastee on Tuesday. If not, the Lady Chiefs can wrap it up by beating rival Myrtle Beach in Thursday’s season finale.

The Lady Seahawks can split the crown by winning out while NMB loses out, but second place and a first-round playoff game at home are more likely scenarios. Myrtle Beach can make it happen by beating Georgetown on Tuesday. Socastee has locked up a playoff spot and defending region champion St. James has already been eliminated from the postseason.

The North Myrtle Beach boys can clinch a home playoff game with one more win but the region title could be up for grabs against rival Myrtle Beach on Thursday. The Seahawks need to win out to claim the region title but can earn a home playoff game just by beating Georgetown on Tuesday.

The St. James boys need to beat Wilson on Tuesday or rival Socastee on Thursday to book their postseason plans. Socastee has already been eliminated.

In Region 6-4A, the Conway boys and girls can lock up a playoff spot with one more win, either Tuesday at South Florence or Friday against visiting rival Carolina Forest. The Lady Panthers need to beat Conway and get some help and the Carolina Forest boys are already eliminated.
