Now that the regular season is over, it is time for four Kershaw County basketball teams to begin state tournament competition.

The Camden girls opened AAA Upper State tourney action last night as the Lady Bulldogs (10-8), the third-place finisher out of Region 4-AAA, traveled to meet the state’s top-ranked AAA squad in Emerald (19-1).

Emerald’s lone loss came to Region 2-AAA rival Berea. The two sides split their two meetings this season.

The winner of the Camden at Emerald game will face the winner between Clinton and Pendleton in Thursday’s second round. Should Camden have won on Monday, it will be on the road for round two.

Here are the rest of the state basketball tournament scenarios for the county’s three boys’ teams:

Camden: The Bulldogs (14-7) won the Region 4-AAA title and will host Carolina Academy (6-12), the fourth-place finisher out of Region 2, in tonight’s AAA Upper State tourney opener inside the Dog Pound. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. 

A CHS victory would keep the Dogs at home for Friday’s second round pairing against the winner of the Seneca (three seed) at Clinton (a number two seed) game.

Lugoff-Elgin: The Demons (16-7) finished fourth in Region 6-4A, and will travel to meet Region 5 champion A.C. Flora (16-6) in Wednesday’s first round of the 4A Lower State tournament in Forest Acres. Tip off if set for 7 p.m.

The winner of the L-E at ACF game will square off against the winner of the Stall (a three seed) vs. Myrtle Beach (a two seed) game in Saturday’s second round. Should L-E win on Wednesday, it will be on the road for round two.

North Central: The Knights (6-15) finished fourth in Region 4-AA, and will travel to meet Region 3 champion Gray Collegiate Academy (20-4) in Wednesday’s first round of the AA Upper State tournament in West Columbia. Tip off if set for 7 p.m.

The winner of the NC at GCA game will face the winner of the Southside Christian (a three seed) vs. St. Joseph’s (a two seed) game in Saturday’s second round. Should NC win on Wednesday, it will be on the road for round two.
