Camden’s basketball seasons could not have ended in a more frustrating fashion as both the Bulldogs and the Lady Bulldogs were victims of late-game 3-point  shots in Tuesday’s doubleheader with visiting Darlington.

James’ jumper lifts Falcons to win: Trevon James hit a trey in the closing seconds of play to lift second-ranked Darlington to a 63-60 win over the Bulldogs.

Camden’s Josh Council saw his 3-point try at game’s end just miss the mark.

In two games with Darlington, Camden lost by a total of eight points. Ron McKie’s charges closed the season with a 7-10 overall record and were 3-5 in Region 6-AAA. The Falcons (19-5) ran the table in 6-AAA and will carry a 19-5 record into the state tournament.

Camden led at every juncture, taking a 23-14 lead into the second quarter and carrying a 36-27 advantage into the locker room at halftime.  DHS closed to within 46-40 after three quarters and used a 23-14 fourth quarter run to come away with the win.

The guests led in the game’s opening minutes and did not lead again in the final basket.

Council led the Dogs with 13 points while senior center Fidel Wise added 12. Senior guard Darelle Smith added eight points.

Lady Dogs disheartened: Darlington’s Jessica McCall threw in a buzzer-beating desperation bomb from near mid-court as the Lady Falcons left Mike Culp Court with a 47-46 win over the hostesses.

Camden (8-9) was trying to complete its first .500 or better campaign in eight years, the final season on the Lady Bulldogs’ sideline for the court’s late namesake. Natalie Jeffcoat’s squad finished with a 3-5 mark in Region 6-AAA play.

The Lady Bulldogs raced to a 13-8 lead after the first quarter and led, 22-16, at intermission. The home team’s lead stood at 35-27 heading into a fourth quarter in which the Lady Falcons exploded for 20 points.

Sophomores Quasha Jefferson and Sharneece Gary led the way for CHS with 15 and 14 points, respectively. Senior Porsha Griffin had 11 points in her final varsity contest.

Ridge View closes region book on Demons: Ridge View handed host Lugoff-Elgin a 77-65 loss in the Demons’ Region 4-4A finale.

L-E closed conference play at 0-12.

Seniors A. J. Timmons and Oran Smith led the way for Derek Belton’s troops with 15 points each while junior Bobby Gary added 13.

 Lady Demons upended: Visiting Ridge View 77 stopped the L-E girls, 77-23, in the Region 4-4A finale.

The loss gave Von Duncan and her squad a final 2-10 conference ledger.

Senior guard Aneka Dixon led the way for the hostesses with 12 points.

Tonight’s games: Lugoff-Elgin will close out its season tonight when Sumter comes to the Demons Den for a non-conference pairing. The Senior Night doubleheader tips off with the girls’ game at 6 p.m.
