  • Boys: Daniel 77 – CHS 43.. The Clinton High boys basketball team traveled to Daniel last night in opening round action of the 3-A playoffs… Just like the girls the night before, Clinton was eliminated as Daniel took a 77-43 win over the Red Devils… Clinton suffered from one of its poorest offensive and defensive efforts of the year in the 1st half.. Daniel led 20-6 at the end of the 1st period and 41-13 at the half…  Daniel changed the type of defense they used often keeping the Red Devils off balance in the opening half.. Clinton did pick up their offense in the 3rd period scoring 20 points but their defense still struggled as they allowed 24 points.. It was much the same story in the 4th period as Clinton tried to stay even but could not catch up… Daniel had 4 players scoring in double digits while Clinton had none… Tay Cook was the leading scorer for the Red Devils with 7 points.. Ian Kinard & Kenyon Brown both had 6 each, Nike Davis & Lavadrick Glenn 5 each, Tymori Tribble & Shakily Smiley 4 each and both Hunter Stewart & Timothy Williams had 3 each..   The Red Devils finished the season with an 8-17 record on the season. 

LDHS:

  • The Laurens boys’ basketball team opens up first round playoff action tonight as they travel to Roebuck to take on the Dorman Cavaliers… The Cavaliers finished 1st in Region II-AAAA with a 19-5 overall record and a 12-2 region record….  Their losses were to Irmo by 7 points, Hillcrest by 6, Northwestern by 3, Byrnes by 1 and Gaffney by 8… Their scoring average is 62.3 points per game while their defense gives up an average of 48.7 points per game… Laurens did play them back in November in the Impact sports Tournament and Dorman took a 76-40 win at that time.. Let’s hope things are different tonight..
