Boys Hoops: No. 1 Tigers beat MB; Braves topple CF

Myrtle Beach took a 70-52 defeat to the No. 1-ranked Tigers on Friday night, but no loss can compare to the one they suffered before the season.

Before the game, Myrtle Beach honored the late James Smith, a jack-of-all-trades icon at the school. He officially served as the school custodian but also wore a lot of hats for the athletic programs, serving as an assistant for the boys basketball team for more than a decade.

In a moving ceremony with Smith’s family members standing at midcourt, Myrtle Beach boys coach Craig Martin asked fans to stand if they had played for Smith or had been a benefactor of his generosity. “He did so many things for so many people …,” Martin said to a standing crowd. “If you needed someone to talk to, or a ride, or a free lunch. …”

But the inspired Seahawks couldn’t keep pace with Wilson. They fell behind by double digits early in the second quarter and couldn’t close the gap. O’Neil McBride led the Seahawks with 16 points, Robert Swanson tallied 13, and Brady Vest chipped in 10.

* Socastee 57, Carolina Forest 51: The Braves (10-10, 3-2) scored a key region road win over the rival Panthers behind a big night for Jonathan Wright.

Wright hit four 3-pointers for a team-high 18 points to lead a balanced effort for the Braves. Andrew Gardner added 13 points and seven rebounds, Kendrell Generette had 11 points and six boards, and Alex Collins chipped in 10 points and six rebounds.

Carolina Forest’s T-Jay Brunson scored a game-high 21 points. Teammates Mason Garcia tallied 10 points and Matt Beale added nine.

* Conway 48, South Florence 35: The No. 3-ranked Tigers did it with defense on Friday, along with a huge night on the other end of the floor by Darren Grainger.

Grainger scored a career-high 29 points and Jimmy Nichols added 13 to lead the way for the Tigers (19-2, 5-1). They remain tied for first in Region 6-5A.

* North Myrtle Beach 59, St. James 44: The Chiefs charged back in the second half to handle the Sharks for a region win.

North Myrtle Beach trailed 33-31 at halftime before breaking away in the second half, holding the Sharks to only 10 points the rest of the way.

* Christian Academy of MB 82, Pee Dee Academy 34: The Saints bounced back from a tough region loss to Trinity-Byrnes to blow out Pee Dee Academy.

Mike Green led four Saints in double figures with 18 points.
