Quasha Jefferson posted a double-double in helping the Camden girls’ basketball team to a 58-39 win over McBee in a make-up game played Wednesday night in Chesterfield County.
The victory, in the non-conference finale, gave Natalie Jeffcoat’s charges a 6-2 record heading into tonight’s Region 6-AAA opener against visiting Crestwood.
Jefferson, a sophomore forward, poured in a game- and career-high 17 points while pulling down a dozen rebounds for the winners.
Camden jumped out to a 19-4 lead after one quarter and carried a 35-16 advantage into the locker room at intermission. The Lady Panthers cut the deficit to four, at 43-39, after three quarters before the Lady Bulldogs pitched a shutout over the game’s final eight minutes.
In addition to Jefferson’s breakout performance, CHS junior point guard Jazzmine Devlin had 10 points to go along with seven assists and three steals. Senior center Chelsea Reynolds had a 15-point game with seven rebounds while sophomore guard Sharneece Gary buried a trio of 3-point shots to account for all nine of her points.
Junior guard Dree Dubose chipped in with another solid night across the board with four point, four steals and a pair of rebounds.
Dogs cruise past Panthers: Led by a career-best 15 points from sophomore center Delton Bradford, the Camden boys breezed past McBee, 76-24, in Wednesday’s second game of the doubleheader.
The victory was the third of the season and second in five nights for Camden over the host Panthers. Ron McKie’s troops improved to 5-3 on the season with the lopsided win.
The Bulldogs received 25 points from their centers on the night as senior Jamal Jackson scored a career-high 10 points. Junior guard Josh Council had 14 points on an evening in which McKie was able to go to his bench early.
Defensively, CHS held Panther guard Rashad Reed, who came into the contest averaging better than 20 points per game, to just six points.
Tonight’s schedule: Camden opens Region 6-AAA play when Crestwood comes into the Dog Pound for a 6 p.m. doubleheader starting with the girls’ game.
Lugoff-Elgin stays at home tonight as the Demons and Lady Demons play host to Irmo in Region 4-4A play opening with the girls’ game at 6 p.m. The Irmo boys feature senior guard and Clemson signee Jordan Roper.
North Central will head over to Bishopville tonight for a pair with Robert E. Lee Academy beginning at 6 p.m.
