One of the biggest problems which North Greenville University had on defense last season was slowing down the running game. In 11 contests last fall, opponents averaged nearly 230 yards on the ground against the Crusaders.
Should Camden, which is ranked 17th in the latest AAA scmatc.com poll, finish in fourth place in Region 4-AAA, the Bullldogs will head to Region 3 champion Union County for Saturday's AAA Upper State wrestling tournament opener.
Seeing as how Dreher starts three players who check in at better than 6-feet tall, it puts the onus on the Lady Blue Devils' opponents to make the best of their looks at the basket. In all likelihood, the first shot may well be the only one each trip down the floor.
Coming off a one-sided loss to powerful Dreher three nights earlier, Camden girls' basketball coach Natalie Jeffcoat was interested to see how her team would respond with soon-to-be 4A entry Westwood in town for a rainy Friday night contest.
When Westwood came out in a 2-3 zone and stayed in that defensive scheme throughout the night, Camden head coach Ron McKie must have felt like a kid who found a leftover gift from Santa behind the tree.
