    BHS’s 34-point win upped the Jackets’ mark to 9-12 this winter.

  • Warriors start strong in region

    McBEE A year ago an early-season Conference III-A basketball clash with McBee included a fight which led to probation and a ban on the Warriors’ hopes for a playoff bid.

    On Saturday, the Warriors, their probation behind them, took another step to enhance their postseason hoops hopes in a 57-50 win over McBee at the MHS gym.

    Indian Land’s seven point win gave the Warriors a sweep of the league twin bill.

    The Lady Warriors, in quest of  a second straight region title,  rolled to a 69-40 over the Lady Panthers’ in the opener.

  • Stewart's hoop lifts LHS

    Lancaster High School boys basketball coach Ricardo Priester has often stressed this season the importance of each player’s role being vital in the Bruins’ 12-3 season.

    Priester’s concept was never truer Monday night when LHS 6-3 senior center Nehemiah Stewart nailed a 10-foot baseline jumper to lift the 10th-ranked Bruins to a 56-54 road win over South Pointe in the LHS region opener.

    The Bruins’ two-point win gave LHS a split after the Lady Bruins dropped a 68-48 loss in the varsity opener.

    The games were slated for Dec. 18, but hazardous road conditions that night moved the twin bill to Saturday.

    The LHS boys, fresh off a third straight overtime win the night prior in the Bruins’ gym where they topped Nation Ford, used a balanced attack to notch the 13-point win.
