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.
