Coming into this basketball season, Lugoff-Elgin girls' head coach Von Duncan knew her team would have to rely on their two returning starters from a year ago in guards Caressa Samuel and Aneka Dixon. Friday night, thats backcourt duo helped keep their team calm after trailing host Camden, 20-11, early in the second quarter. From there, the pair helped lead the ...
