A host of Lancaster County prep basketball players has been selected to participate in the S.C. Basketball Coaches Association Elite Camp this weekend.

The boys players will meet at Ridge View High School on Saturday, Oct. 12, while the girls are slated to report for the one-day session on Sunday, Oct. 13.

Boys players include three from Lancaster High School – senior guard Deuce Dunlap, senior forward E.J. Patterson and 6-6 sophomore center Keonte Mack.

Dunlap, the LHS MVP last season, averaged 16.5 points per game.

Andrew Jackson High School senior Dustin Eddins will also participate. Eddins averaged 10.2 points a game last season for the Vols.

Five county girls players will also participate, including three from Andrew Jackson.

The Lady Vols’ trio includes senior Dareisha Sowell along with sophomores Elizabeth Scott and Summer Vick.

Scott hit 14.1 points and grabbed 8.1 rebounds last season for the Lady Vols who earned a postseason bid after finishing as the regular-season co-champion in Region IV-AA play.

Sowell netted 12.9 points and 2.9 boards, while Vick scored four points a game to go with two rebounds per contest.

Two Lancaster High senior players, guard Kyia Hough and center Phoebe Johnson, will participate in the girls camp.

Johnson, an all-region pick for the LHS girls, averaged 11.9 points and 9.1 rebounds for the Lady Bruins last season.

Hough, who missed her junior season with an injury, is expected to be a key performer this season for the LHS girls. She averaged 14.2 points as a sophomore.

Elite campers, who are selected from across the state in all classifications, compete in drills during the morning session and then play in games in the afternoon as part of the S.C. Basketball Coaches Association fall hoops showcase.
