VCU signee Tevin Mack had 26 points to lead host Dreher to a 61-48 victory over Camden in a Region 4-AAA boys' basketball game played Tuesday night in Columbia.
Camden, which finished second in Region 4-AAA, will meet Belton-Honea Path, the third-place finisher Region 3, in Saturday's first round of the AAA Upper State wrestling tournament at South Pointe High School in Rock Hill.
Camden dropped both ends of a doubleheader to visiting Lower Richland on Friday night inside the Dog Pound.
Camden High School will send 10 wrestlers --- including three Region 4-AAA champions --- into the state AAA Upper State wrestling championships to be held on Feb. 20-12 at West-Oak Middle School.
Rather than staying in their locker room for halftime, the Richland Northeast girls made a U-turn, came back through the Camden High gym and regathered in the school's commons area.
Gone are the hockey-like line changes. So, too, are extended minutes on the court for most of the non-starters on the Camden boys basketball team which has gone to a more traditional substitution pattern under interim head coach Ron McKie Jr.
The Camden High wrestling team will travel to Columbia this afternoon for the two-day, 32-team Dreher Invitational.
Ron McKie Jr. would make a terrible "spin doctor" on one of the many Sunday morning TV talk shows in which men and women try to convince viewers that the news and facts may not be as good or, as bad, as they may seem.
With her team coming off back-to-back wins in the post-Christmas Lake Marion Invitational and with games against region and state heavyweights Lower Richland and Dreher coming up, Camden girls' basketball head coach Natalie Jeffcoat felt Tuesday night would be the perfect time for her team to make a statement that the Lady Bulldogs were back.

After having rallied from an eight-point halftime deficit to even things at 43 at the end of three quarters, the Camden High girls' basketball team was outscored, 23-6, in the closing stanza in a 66-49 loss to host Lakewood on Monday.
If there is any sport which can test a person's soul, golf would have to be at or near the top of the list.
Less than enthralled with Tyler Jordan's first at-bat in Tuesday night's game with visiting Richland Northeast, Camden head baseball coach Denny Beckley had no complaints following his second baseman's second trip to the plate. And after the third, the Bulldog boss was ecstatic.
