  • Looking Back: LHS Bruins lose...

    The Lancaster News published this column on Sept. 30, 2015, marking the death of Sindarius Thornwell’s uncle and mentor.

    I’ve been around Lancaster High School basketball for decades, and I don’t think LHS hoops has had a bigger fan than DaJuan Thornwell.
    Seems like when the ball was tipped off for a Bruins game – boys or girls, home or away – “Big Kuntry” was nearby. You would also likely find him at a junior varsity game on the hardwood.

    The Gamecocks’ East Region championship T-shirts said “Cut Down The Net.”
    USC, en route to cutting down the net at Madison Square Garden on Sunday after winning the East Region title and a first-ever NCAA Final Four berth, have cut down the big hardwood timber – No.  2 seed Duke, No. 3 seed Baylor and fourth-seeded Florida.
    Up next for the seventh-seeded Gamecocks comes West Region champion and No. 1 seed Gonzaga.

  • Looking back: Thornwell AAAA...

    The Lancaster News published this article on Feb. 19, 2012, when Thornwell was named South Carolina’s AAAA Player of the Year.

    Before the start of the 2011-12 high school basketball season, Lancaster High School junior star Sindarius Thornwell was named one of the Elite 5 boys players by the S.C. Basketball Coaches Association.
    Thornwell, a 6-5 guard-forward, proved to be that and more as he was recently named the Class AAAA boys Player of the Year by the SCBCA.

    A close finish highlighted the Friends of Lancaster Golf captain’s choice golf tournament at the Lancaster Golf Club on Saturday afternoon.

    Kendra Haddox ended the scoring on a wonderful interception and attack of the goal from 16 yards out.

    Carolina is gong to the Final Four.

    That’s something you’ve heard before.

    You likely heard mid-afternoon Sunday, and then later that day.
