Socastee falls to Montverde in Beach Ball quarterfinals

The second half was much the same, with Socastee only able to find 24 points. Duke signee and No. 1 ranked RJ Barrett put on a slam dunk exhibition in the second half, repeatedly finding a path to the open basket before both teams substituted in non-starters.
