Brother and sister Evrik and Sharneece Gary of Camden enjoyed strong 2013-14 basketball seasons which became even more memorable for the pair after last week.
Sharneece Gary, a senior at Camden High, has been selected to play in the 66th annual North-South All-Star Basketball Games to be played on Saturday, March 22 at Lexington High School.
Gary, a 5-foot-4 guard, led Natalie Jeffcoat’s Lady Bulldogs in scoring as she averaged 13.5 points per game. The three-year starter was deadly from beyond the 3-point arc, draining a team-best 63 from distance this past season.
Gary, who will play for the North All-Stars on Saturday, dished out 2.4 assists per game while having more than two steals per contest.
The North-South All-Star doubleheader tips off at 3 p.m. with the girls’ game followed by the boys’ contest at 5 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for high school students and younger and will only be sold at the door on Saturday. The doors will open at 2 p.m.
Evrik Gary, a Francis Marion University graduate student, has been named to the 2014 Daktronics All-Southeast Region basketball team. Gary earned second-team honors. 
Gary, a 6-3 guard, ended the year averaging 20.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.3 steals per game. His scoring average was the highest for a Patriot in 30 seasons, dating back to 1983-84 when Hank Foster averaged 21.0 points per game. Gary’s average also led the Peach Belt Conference and ranks 32nd nationally. He led the conference in free throws made (162), while ranking second in three-point shooting percentage (46.9%), fourth in minutes played per game (34.8), fifth in free throw percentage (87.6%), 14th in steals, and 16th in assists.
Gary connected on 47.1 percent of all of his field goal attempts and registered more assists than turnovers (83/58). He scored in double figures 26 times this year with fifteen 20-point games (five 30-point efforts).
A four-year starter, his career point total of 1,787 was second-best in FMU history and fourth-best in PBC history. Gary also holds the school career records for three-pointers made and attempted, free throws made, and free throw percentage at 88.0 percent
In the classroom, Gary earned his undergraduate degree in Business Management in May 2013 and is currently working toward a Masters of Business Administration degree. He has twice been named to the Peach Belt Conference Presidential Honor Roll and five times to the FMU Swamp Fox Athletic-Academic Honor Roll.
Gary is a 2009 Camden High School honor graduate and a South Carolina High School League Scholar Athlete. He helped lead Ron McKie’s Bulldogs to the 2008-09 AAA state basketball championship while earning All-State and all-region honors in the process. In that same season, he played in the North-South All-Star Game, which his sister will play in come Saturday.
