Lugoff-Elgin opened play in Region 4-4A basketball by splitting a Tuesday night road doubleheader at Richland Northeast High school.

The Lady Demons snapped a two-game skid with a 51-39 victory over the Lady Cavaliers.

It was a much different story in the boys’ game as the hosts upended the Demons, 72-34.

In the girls’ game, Von Duncan’s Lady Demons (2-3) used a 24-point second quarter to take a commanding 32-12 lead into the locker room at halftime. The two sides were knotted at 8-8 after one quarter of play.

L-E led, 39-27, after three stanzas and would not be threatened in the fourth quarter.

In the nightcap, Derek Belton’s troops fell to 0-5 with the defeat at the hands of the Cavaliers.

Bobby Gary led the Demons with 10 points while Michael Sumpter was next with eight.

RNE all-state candidate Travis Hammonds led all scorers with a game-best 30 points.
