Sixth-ranked Dreher used a 17-6 run in the final four and a half minutes of play to take a 59-49 win over Camden in a Region 4-AAA boys’ game played Tuesday night in Columbia.

The loss dropped the Bulldogs to 1-2 in league play while the contest was the conference opener for the host Blue Devils.

Camden held a 43-42 lead with 4:30 remaining in the contest. But Dreher came out in a press after a tie out and the Bulldogs struggled down the stretch to find an offensive rhythm.

Senior center Delton Bradford led Ron McKie’s troops with 13 points while classmate Josh Sumpter was next with a dozen points for the visitors.

Dreher upends Lady Bulldogs: Fourth-ranked Dreher handed the Camden girls an 81-32 defeat in Columbia on Tuesday night.

The loss left the visiting Lady Bulldogs with a 1-2 record in Region 4-AAA play. This was the Lady Blue Devils’ conference opener.

Brooke Dixon led the way for Natalie Jeffcoat’s charges with 10 points. Sharneece Gary was next with five.

AJ gets past Knights: Thanks in large part to nine 3-point baskets, Andrew Jackson gained a split of its season series with rival North Central with a 55-46 win over the visiting Knights in Tuesday’s non-region finale played in Kershaw.

Andy Johnson’s charges fell to 6-4 on the season with the loss.

The host Volunteers led at every juncture in jumping to a 13-7 lead after the first quarter before carrying a 30-18 advantage into the locker room at halftime. NC made up four points in the third stanza, trailing 44-36 entering the final eight minutes of play.

Kawan Hough, NC’s 6-foot-7 senior center, led the Knights with a 15-point, 13-rebound outing. Junior forward William Jenkins added 14 points to go along with three rebounds while Banyon Sullivan and Lamont Frazier added six and five points, respectively.

“We did not perform well on offense or defense,” Johnson said following the loss.  ‘Our shot selection was poor and we didn’t defend Andrew Jackson very well.  They made some shots behind the 3-point line that hurt us.”

In the girls’ game, Andrew Jackson defeated the Lady Knights for the third time in as many outings this season between the two rivals.
