Beaufort High’s boys righted the ship after a tough loss earlier in the week to bounce back with a key 71-63 home victory over Bluffton in Region 7-4A play Friday.
The Eagles celebrated Senior Night, and a pair of the honorees had huge nights to lead Beaufort to the big win. Ollie Holmes poured in a game-high 21 points to go with five steals, and Daniel Phares posted a double-double with 10 points and 10 boards.
