When you are a team looking to get over the hump and searching for a signature win, several things need to happen in order to pull it off.

For the Lugoff-Elgin boys’ basketball team, defensive stops and a pair of charges taken by Tyrese Elm in deep stretch helped lead the Demons to a 67-64 win over visiting Ridge View on Tuesday night inside the Demons Den.

The three-point victory snapped a six-game skid for Garrett Knight’s troops which won for the first time in four Region 4-4A outings. L-E improved to 6-9 overall against the Blazers who fell to 11-5 on the season.

L-E looked to sophomore forward Bradwin Salmond and senior Aldreacio Wells to lock up their respective players on the defensive end in the fourth quarter. But it was a pair of charges taken by Elm, a junior guard who also locked the game away with a 3-point jumper, which helped seal the deal.

Wells led the winners with 17 points while Elm and Salmond added 13 points each. Sophomore guard Kevon Roberson added seven points toward the winning cause.

Lady Demons fall to Ridge View: In the girls’ game on Tuesday night, visiting Ridge View handed Lugoff-Elgin a 69-27 defeat.

The loss was the fourth in as many Region 4-4A contests for Von Duncan’s Lady Demons which fell to 4-11 on the season.

The visiting Lady Blazers jumped to a 24-7 lead after the first quarter of play and carried a 34-14 advantage into the locker room at halftime. RV was on top, 53-22, after the third quarter.

Senior guard Ebonie Ross led the Lady Demons with 11 points while junior guard Jasmine Sexton was next with eight points. Sophomore Caitlyn Simon and freshman Jamia Bracey added four and three points, respectively.

Threatt, Central sink Lady Knights: Led by 30 points from freshman guard Shiyana Threatt, Central handed the North Central girls’ basketball team a 59-47 loss on Tuesday in Pageland.

NC fell to 5-11 overall and 0-6 in Region 4-AA play.

The visiting Lady Knights got off to a slow start, trailing 10-2 after one quarter before cutting the deficit to 30-20 at halftime only to trail, 45-30, heading into the fourth quarter.

Freshman Kali Tomlin led NC with 22 points while junior forward Alexis Baker added 11. Senior Nyasia Joe had a season and caree-best 15 rebounds.

Tonight’s games: Both Camden and Lugoff-Elgin will be at home tonight for region doubleheaders while North Central has the night off.

Camden will host A.C. Flora while Lugoff-Elgin will welcome Dutch Fork. The girls contests kicks things off at 6 p.m.
