Braves, Sharks, Seahawks fall in Crescent Bank tourney

Monday was a difficult day for local teams playing in the Crescent Bank Holiday Invitational, with Myrtle Beach, St. James and Socastee suffering losses.

The Lady Braves lost the nightcap to Troy (Calif.) 66-25 to join the other two in the consolation bracket at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.

Alecia Dimas led Troy with 20 points and eight rebounds, while Katherine Mose paced Socastee with 11 points.  Troy forced Socastee into 38 turnovers and held a 42-6 advantage in points off of turnovers.

The Lady Braves (7-3) will face Providence Day (N.C.) at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday at Myrtle Beach High.

In other action, St. James got a rude introduction to the girls high school hoops tournament, suffering a 95-22 blowout at the hands of Norcross (Ga.)  for the Lady Sharks’ (6-1) first loss of the season.

Norcross’ Diamond DeShields, who drew some “ohhs and ahhs” from the crowd, also attracted the attention of University of Connecticut head coach Geno Auriemma.

The junior, who is being recruited by just about every major program in the country, scored 24 points and had six steals in only 13 minutes of action. Shayla Cooper added 20 points and eight rebounds for Norcross (5-2).

The 95 points scored by the Lady Blues is the second highest single game total in the 13-year history of the tournament.  Scott County (Ky.) owns that record with a 105-92 win over Honeya Falls (N.Y.) during the 2004 tourney.

St. James was paced by Keyana Rutledge’s nine points. The Lady Sharks will face Miami Sr. at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Myrtle Beach High.

* The Myrtle Beach High girls basketball team suffered its second straight loss of the season and tournament on Monday, falling the Greater Atlanta Christian (6-3) by a 71-60 score at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.

The Lady Seahawks will close out the event Wednesday with an 8:15 a.m. losers’ bracket matchup with Goose Creek, which suffered a 32-27 defeat to Fayette County (Ga.) on Monday.

Myrtle Beach senior Khadijah Sessions scored a game-high 26 points and pulled down a team-high nine rebounds, and Tanisha Brown failed to record a double-double for only the second time this season with 16 points and only six boards.

Greater Atlanta Christian had more weapons than Myrtle Beach could handle. Sierra Lawrence scored a team-high 19 points, Brianna Cummings posted a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds and CiCi Buford and Sydni Means had 12  points apiece.

The Lady Seahawks led by as many as six points in the first half before falling behind at the half 38-35. Greater Atlanta Christian took its biggest lead of 54-42 midway through the second half and Myrtle Beach got no closer than 60-55 the rest of the way.
