Sharneece Gary poured in a career-best 24 points in helping lead the Camden High girls to a 59-56 win over A.C. Flora in a Tuesday night game played in Columbia.
The three-point victory gave Natalie Jeffcoat’s squad a sweep of the Lady Falcons while improving to 2-4 in Region 4-AAA play.
Gary, a junior shooting guard, did the majority of her damage from beyond the 3-point arc as she knocked down six treys to go along with a 6-for-6 performance from the foul line.
The Lady Bulldogs led, 15-11, after the first quarter and 36-34 at halftime.
Sophomore guard Brooke Dixon was next with 12 points while junior forward Quasha Jefferson added eight.
Camden is tied for third place in conference play along with A.C. Flora, Chapin and Westwood, all with identical 2-4 records. Lower Richland, which visits Camden tonight, leads the circuit with a 6-0 record followed by defending AAA state champion Dreher, at 4-2.
Dogs fall to Falcons: The Camden boys could not pull off the upset on Tuesday as Ron McKie’s charges came out on the short end of a 53-42 decision against A.F. Flora on Tuesday.
The Bulldogs trailed, 20-17, en route to their fourth loss in six Region 4-AAA outings in a game which became chippy in the latter stages of play.
Like the CHS girls, the Bulldogs find themselves in a four-way tie for third place in conference action along with Chapin, Dreher and Westwood, all at 2-4. Lower Richland leads the way with a 6-0 mark followed by A.C. Flora at 3-3.
Keenan overwhelms Knights: Keenan remained perfect through six Region 3-AA pairings with a 101-39 victory over visiting North Central on Tuesday in Columbia.
The loss dropped Andy Johnson’s Knights to 2-4 in league play.
Senior point guard Brady Brister led the guests with 14 points while junior center Kawan Hough and junior guard Omar Johnson added 10 and seven points, respectively.
Tuesday marked the second consecutive game in which the Knights played minus leading scorer Jeremy Fowler, who continues to nurse a nagging hip injury.
The Raiders placed seven players in double figures.
North Central continues to hold down fourth place in 3-AA, trailing Keenan (6-0), Fairfield Central (5-1) and Columbia (3-3). Pelion, which comes to Boonetown this evening, and Eau Claire both sit at 1-5.
Weekend action: All six Kershaw County basketball teams will be at home tonight while the county’s three wrestling squads will learn of their post-season team and/or individual plans on Saturday.
In basketball action, Camden hosts Lower Richland in a 6 p.m. doubleheader to be played on the Mike Culp Court. After not having played on Tuesday, Lugoff-Elgin returns to the hardwood to take on Spring Valley. Both doubleheaders begin at 6 p.m.
In Boonetown, North Central welcomes Pelion to The Castle for a twinbill which tips off at 6:30 p.m.
The Camden Military Academy basketball team will host Hammond on Saturday in a 4:30 p.m. game at the White Field House.
On Saturday, CHS, L-E and NC will compete in their respective conference wrestling tournaments to determine region champions and sort out seedings for the state tournament which begins on Saturday, Feb. 2.
Lugoff-Elgin will travel to Irmo High School for the Region 4-4A duals championship which begins at 9 a.m. Camden will head to Chapin for the Region 4-AAA individual qualifying tourney which hits the mat at 10 a.m. while North Central will take part in the Region 3-AA event set for a 10 a.m. start at Columbia High School.
