Hoops: Seahawks sweep Socastee in home opener

With the football team preparing for Friday night’s Class 3A Lower State title game at Midland Valley, the shorthanded Seahawks saw four players score in double figures to lead a thin but balanced effort.

Bryce Schneider scored a team-high 20 points, and fellow varsity veterans Adam Zam and Robert Swanson tallied 17 and 12, respectively, to lead Myrtle Beach. Emory Knox chipped in 10 points, and fellow newcomer Ben Minte scored eight before fouling out and leaving the Seahawks with only six players.

Myrtle Beach had its hands full in defending 7-footer Jason Cudd, who scored a game-high 25 points and dominated the boards against the undersized Seahawks. Marcus Hemingway added 16 points for Socastee, which was outscored 19-13 in the final quarter in an otherwise tight contest.

St. James was led by Zach Werba with 10 points. The Sharks host the Tigers in a rematch Friday.

* West Brunswick (NC) 80, Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach 65: Playing with two starters sidelined by injury, the Saints couldn’t keep pace on a road trip out of state against the Trojans.

* Myrtle Beach 57, Socastee 30: The Lady Seahawks used a balanced scoring effort to breeze past the Lady Braves, led by Kiana Adderton and Nia Sumpter’s 11 points apiece.
