Wanting to conserve some energy in a breakneck-paced scheme, Camden High interim head basketball coach Ron McKie Jr. went to a zone defense Friday night, as opposed to the constant man-to-man pressure which the first-year Bulldog boss favors. Camden dropped back into a 2-3 set which was all well and good until Lugoff-Elgin freshmen Bradwin Salmond and Kevon Roberson got open look after open look in raining down three-point baskets in the latter stages of the third and the start of the fourth quarters. With Salmond knocking down three shots from distance and Roberson adding another, the hosts blew open what was a 43-41 lead with a 27-15 spurt which ignited an 85-69 L-E victory on Friday inside the Demons Den.
