Forsaking the X’s and O’s with his team trailing visiting Dutch Fork, 51-28 at intermission, Lugoff-Elgin boys basketball coach Derek Belton appealed to his team’s pride during his halftime talk. While words alone were not enough for the Demons to overcome a 23-point deficit, Belton’s speech did not fall on deaf ears, either. Rather than pack it in, L-E took their coach’s advice to heart and narrowed the gap to nine points the fourth quarter in what turned out to be an 89-78 loss to the Silver Foxes.
