CAMDENS SHARNEECE GARY GAINS control of an inbounds pass which she would turn into a 3-point basket in second half of the Lady Bulldogs win over visiting Hartsville on the Mike Culp Court on Friday night.
On the second anniversary of the passing of longtime Camden girls’ basketball coach Mike Culp, the current edition of the Lady Bulldogs put together a game, and a finish, of which The Dean would have been proud. And they did it on the court named in his honor against one of Culp’s longtime rivals, no less.With her team nursing a 46-41 lead in the final minute of what turned out to be a 48-41 win over Hartsville Friday night, CHS head coach and Natalie Jeffcoat --- a former standout for Culp --- watched as her girls spread the floor, played keep-away with the ball while melting the clock. That move was a Culp staple in his 30-plus years on the sidelines for the then-Rockettes.For Camden, the win gave the hostesses an 8-7 overall record while improving to 2-5 in Region 6-AAA play with three games remaining in the conference and regular season.
