Boys Hoops: Saints clinch region; Sharks rout Chiefs

camb-0Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach freshman Jaylen Johnson hit a pair of critical 3-pointers in the final 2 minutes of overtime to give the Saints a hard-fought 74-72 victory over visiting Florence Christian School on Friday night to maintain sole possession of first place in the region.

After blowing out FCS on the road 62-28 earlier this month, the Saints (17-4 overall, 7-0 region) had their hands full against the Eagles, who were trying to force a tie atop the SCISA Region 3-2A standings. With the game tied at 67-all, Johnson  drilled a 3 with 2 minutes left and canned another with 19 seconds left to put the game away.

The Saints were fortunate to force the extra period after FCS led 63-58 with 3 minutes left in regulation. Playing on Senior Night, senior Josh Lang scored five unanswered to tie it up, and Michael Green added a layup with 41 seconds left for a 7-0 run and a 65-63 lead. But FCS’s Michael Cooper, who had a game-high 33 points, tied it up with 3.2 seconds left and sent it into overtime.

Johnson scored 23points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the Saints. Green also a double-double with 15 points and 10 boards, and Lang finished with 19 points.

The victory locks up the region title for CAMB with one game remaining. The Saints travel to Pee Dee Academy on Tuesday before trying to wrap up the region tournament championship.

* St. James 61, North Myrtle Beach 43: The Sharks avenged a region-opening loss to the Chiefs in impressive fashion, breaking open a close game in the second half and rolling into sole possession of second place in the 7-3A standings.

Host St. James (13-4, 4-2) was clinging to a 31-30 over North Myrtle Beach (10-7, 2-4) lead after a back-and-forth first half and led by only three points entering the final period, 42-39.

But the Sharks outscored the Chiefs 19-4 in the decisive fourth period and pulled away for the victory. Jordan Fields scored a game-high 21 points, 17 of them coming in the first half, to lead the Sharks. Jackson Hurston had 18 points and Haywood Brandon added 10. Matthew Stanaland led the Chiefs with 12 points.

* Wilson 63, Myrtle Beach 34: The Seahawks (7-13, 3-3) fell back to the middle of the pack in the region standings after suffering their coldest shooting night of the new year.

* West Florence 56, Socastee 36: The Braves (4-16, 1-5) sustained another tough region loss to the visiting Knights.

Myrtle Beach failed to break double figures in each of the four quarters as the Tigers (5-1 region) avenged an earlier loss to the Seahawks.
