Hoops: Strand teams turn up D to win by blowouts

The Myrtle Beach High girls basketball team turned in a strong defensive effort Thursday night to defeat visiting Georgetown 49-17.

The Lady Seahawks (6-1) were lead by Ivy Collins, who matched the Lady Bulldogs’ entire team output with 17 points. Asia Smith added 7 points, Shillae Campbell had 6, and Ajia Kelly finished with 5.

* Carolina Forest 80, Hemingway 30: The Lady Panthers exploded out of the gate to claim a 31-6 advantage after one quarter of play and eased their way to a road win over the Lady Tigers.

The Lady Panthers hit seven 3-pointers in the first quarter alone and continued the barrage to post a 50-point margin of victory. They travel to Northwood Academy on Saturday.

* St. James 39, Aynor 17: The Lady Sharks came out cold, trailing 7-6 after the first period, but turned it up the rest of the way to pull away from the host Lady Blue Jackets.

St James was led by Ilenne De Los Santos with a game-high 12 points. The Lady Sharks travel to Waccamaw on Friday.

Boys

* Myrtle Beach 66, Georgetown 36: Playing without leading scorer Robert Swanson, the Myrtle Beach High boys basketball team didn’t miss a beat by blowing out Georgetown.

Emorie Knox scored a game-high 16 points and O’Neil McBride tallied 13 to lead the Seahawks. Jayce Allen added nine points as nine different players scored for the Seahawks.

* Socastee 93, Conway Christian 38: The Braves stepped out of class and stepped up their game in routing SCISA program Conway Christian.

Socastee built a 20-point halftime lead and pulled away in the second half. Kendrell Generette led the Braves with 16 points, Alex Collins and Zack Henderson tallied 12 apiece, and Andrew Gardner added 11.

* St. James 64, Aynor 33: The Sharks used a stiff defense to build a 33-10 halftime advantage, and they put it on cruise control in the second half.

St. James was led by Payton Lewis with 13 points, and teammates Jordan Furlough and Jayson Brady contributed nine points apiece.

* Hemingway 55, Carolina Forest 41: The Panthers faded down the stretch to lose on the road to the reigning Class 1A state champion Tigers.

The Panthers trailed by six entering the fourth quarter, 39-33, and kept it close for most of the game. But Hemingway hit 9 3-pointers, including several big treys to kill the Panthers’ momentum.

Matt Beale led Carolina Forest with 11 points, and Kevin Jackson and Mason Garcia scored 8 apiece. The Panthers look to recover on Saturday at Northwood Academy.
