Thanks in large part to a 30-point second half, the Lugoff-Elgin girls’ basketball team snapped a nine-game losing skid with a 46-26 victory over visiting Richland Northeast Tuesday night inside the Demons Den.
The win gave Von Duncan’s Lady Demons a 4-12 overall record and a 2-6 mark in Region 4-4A play.
L-E trailed, 9-8, after the first quarter before using an 8-3 second quarter surge to carry a 16-12 lead into the locker room at halftime.
The hostesses saw their lead chopped to 27-24 after three quarters of play, only to see L-E explode for 19 fourth quarter points while its defense limited the Lady Cavaliers to two points in pulling away for a 20-point victory.
Lady Demon senior Aneka Dixon nearly outscored the visitors by herself as she poured in a game-high 22 points with nine of those coming on a trio of 3-point baskets. Samantha Jean was next with six points.
Defensively, forward Cady Murphy pulled down 11 rebounds with two blocks. Jean added a trio of blocked shots.
Cavs upend Demons: While the Lady Demons were able to get back on the winning track, the Demons fell for the ninth straight time in a 65-52 defeat at the hands of Richland Northeast.
The loss was the eighth in as many Region 4-4A outings for Delton Belton’s squad.
Michael Sumpter led L-E with 13 points Stephan Hunter was next with 11 while Bobby Gary added 10 points and a team-best seven rebounds.
Dogs dumped by Knights: Camden’s chances to earn a AAA state tournament berth took a hit Tuesday night as the Bulldogs slipped to 2-4 in Region 6-AAA play with a 51-45 loss to host Crestwood in Sumter County.
The Knights’ win gave the two sides a split of their season series. The Bulldogs won the first pairing, played inside the Dog Pound, 56-48.
Crestwood improved to 3-3 in conference play, which is good for third place behind Darlington (6-0) and Hartsville (5-1). Camden is tied with Marlboro County fo fourth place, at 2-4, in the six-team circuit with four games left to be played.
Hamid Mathis and Josh Council led the Dogs with 11 points apiece while Dashon Tucker was next for Ron McKie’s squad with nine points.
Lady Dogs upended: The Camden girls slipped to 1-5 in Region 6-AAA action following a 70-26 defeat at the hands of league-leading Crestwood.
Tonight’s games: It is starting to get down to crunch time for Kershaw County basketball teams and their post-season hopes as the regular season begins to wind down with two weeks left to play.
Camden will be at home tonight to entertain rival Hartsville on the Mike Culp Court in a Region 6-AAA doubleheader while North Central hosts McBee in a key Region 3-A pairing. Lugoff-Elgin will be on the road to meet up with Dutch Fork.
All three doubleheaders will begin with the girls’ game tipping things off at 6 p.m.
