With two games left in the regular season, the Camden High boys’ basketball team sits in a tie for third place in the Region 4-AAA standings.
The Bulldogs, who had a bye on Friday night, have won their last three conference games and are 6-4 in league play heading into Tuesday’s home game with Chapin (0-9). On Friday, Ron McKie’s troops will play their final regular season home game when Lower Richland comes to the Dog Pound for a game which will have major playoff implications surrounding it.
League-leading Dreher (9-2) and A.C. Flora (8-3) have locked up playoff slots. Camden is tied with Lower Richland --- which defeated Dreher, 56-48 on Saturday --- at 6-4 with both teams being a game in front of Westwood (5-5).
In addition to CHS’s two home games this week, Lower Richland travels to River Bluff (1-8) on Tuesday before coming to Camden on Friday. The Bulldogs won their first meeting with LR this season.
Westwood, which is trying for one of the four post-season berths, closes it regular season with a trip to A.C. Flora on Tuesday before hosting River Bluff in Friday’s finale. Camden has split with the Redhawks this season while Lower Richland has won both its games with Westwood.
Lady Bulldogs look to earn a post-season berth: The Camden High girls enter the final week of the regular season on the outside looking in for the playoffs.
Last Tuesday’s 47-46 loss to River Bluff gave Natalie Jeffcoat’s squad a 4-6 mark in Region 4-AAA, a game behind Chapin (5-5) and A.C. Flora, which has a 5-6 record.
Camden hosts Chapin on Tuesday before closing regular season action when conference champion and second-ranked Lower Richland come to the Michael G. Culp Court in Friday’s regular season finale.
Chapin, which defeated Camden in the first meeting between the two teams, hosts second-place Dreher (9-2) on Friday. A.C. Flora and Camden split their two games this season. The Lady Falcons close their regular season on Tuesday with a game at a 2-8 Westwood squad.
