HSBBB: Slow start dooms HHP in SCISA 3A first round

Hilton Head Prep’s boys couldn’t recover from a slow start in the first round of the SCISA 3A state tournament, falling 58-50 to Northwood Academy on Saturday at Pinewood Prep. 

The Dolphins fell behind 31-15 at halftime and trailed by as many as 22 in the third. But JJ Hayes and company put together a valiant comeback, closing the gap to just five with two minutes to go before the Chargers held on.

In his final basketball game at HHP, Luke Foley cleaned up on the boards with 14 rebounds to go with a pair of blocks, and Kane Eanes capped off a stellar sophomore season with seven points, eight rebounds, and three assists. 

Hilton Head Prep concludes the season with a record of 15-5.
