JOSH COUNCIL CALLS a play in the second half of Camdens loss to visiting Lower Richland on Friday night.
On what turned out to be D.J. Wilson’s welcome to the big-time party, Lower Richland stole the cake and then ate it, too.Playing without the services of starting 6-foot-4, 300-pound center Delton Bradford, the Camden boys’ basketball team needed someone to step up in the middle against a visiting Lower Richland squad which entered Friday’s game on the Mike Culp Court with a 6-0 record in Region 4-AAA play.A year younger and some 100 pounds thinner than Bradford, Wilson came up with more than 10 rebounds, two blocks and altered several Diamond Hornet shots. His four points were a bonus. Yet, all those numbers were not enough to give CHS a win as the guests left the Dog Pound with a 47-43 victory.The loss left the Dogs with a 2-5 record, tied for fourth in the 4-AAA race for one of the four playoff slots and one game behind Dreher, whose win over Westwood gave the Blue Devils a 3-4 league mark.
