It all boils down to one game.Whether or not the Camden High boys’ basketball team returns to the AAA state playoffs will be decided on Tuesday when Chapin comes into the Dog Pound for a game on the Mike Culp Court.Both teams enter the contest tied for the fourth and final playoff slot in Region 4-AAA after having won their Friday night road contests to improve to 3-6 in league play with one game left in the regular and conference season. The winner of Tuesday’s game could find their way into third place, depending on how third-place Dreher does in its game at A.C. Flora.Camden used four 3-point baskets in the first quarter to jump out to an 18-10 lead over Westwood before holding on for a 48-43 win to sweep the season series against the Red Hawks. Meanwhile, in Columbia, Chapin was disposing of Dreher, 59-55, to hike its record to 3-6 in 4-AAA action.After the Dogs’ quick start in Blythewood on Friday, the hosts rallied to carry a 27-25 lead into the locker room at halftime.
