Showing that they can play at a more moderate pace than the up and down the court style which they favor, Lugoff-Elgin used a more determined second half effort to come away with a 52-46 win over visiting Darlington Tuesday night.
Points have been at a premium for the Lugoff-Elgin girls this season. So when the Lady Demons hung up a 25 spot in the first half of Tuesday's game with visiting Darlington, it was another sign that the re-tooled squad is coming around.

For a coach whose team is already short on numbers, playing three games in the same week is bad enough. When you have two contests coming within 20 hours of each other, the task become even more menacing.
Anyone within earshot could have given the North Central girls' basketball team a heads up as to what was to be the points of emphasis for Wednesday's practice.
Turning a pair of late-game turnovers back into turnovers help short-circuit what was a two-game North Central boys' win streak and helped Central leave The Castle with a 64-58 victory over the host Knights.
On a Tuesday night which started with an emotional salute to Camden High volunteer wrestling coach Bill Carlton, the evening went out with a whimper for the hosts.
