Girls Hoops: Conway routs CF for first place in region

conghoops-20The Conway High girls basketball team continued its surprising run for a region title Tuesday night, dominating rival Carolina Forest 60-41 in a first-place showdown in Region 6-5A.

The Lady Tigers remained undefeated in region play with a 4-0 record, while the Lady Panthers suffered their first league loss to drop to 3-1. Conway is seeking its first region title since 1983.

Conway made sure this one was never in doubt, building a 34-20 halftime lead and holding off a Carolina Forest charge that cut the deficit to single digits. But the Lady Tigers’ transition offense was too hot for the Lady Panthers to handle.

Conway’s Lenaejah Evans led the Lady Tigers (10-5, 4-0) with 20 points. The Lady Tigers play host to South Florence on Thursday.

Carolina Forest was led by another double-double effort from Alexis Tomlin with 22 points, 12 rebounds, and six blocks. The Lady Panthers (11-5, 3-1)  return home to host Socastee on Thursday.

* Socastee 44, Sumter 33: The Lady Braves picked up a big region win on the road, using a strong second-half surge to knock off the Lady Gamecocks.

Socastee’s Shayla Baldwin led the way with 21 points for the Lady Braves, who improved to 3-1 in the region. They travel Thursday to face Carolina Forest for second place in the league.

* St. James 45, Marlboro County 43: Hunter Clapham hit the game-winning basket with 20 seconds left to lift the Lady Sharks to their first region victory on the road over the Lady Bulldogs.

The Lady Sharks (8-10, 1-2) were led by Abigail Rumph with 18 points. They return to the road Friday at Wilson.

* Wilson 65, North Myrtle Beach 47: The Lady Chiefs (12-7, 2-1) suffered their first region loss of the season. They fell behind by double digits at halftime and couldn’t threaten the visiting Lady Tigers in the second half.

North Myrtle Beach was led by Aquera Johnson’s double-double of 16 points and 14 rebounds, and Jenna Berger added nine points in the Lady Chiefs’ losing effort.
