Beaufort High boys basketball stayed perfect in Region 7-4A play with a 77-65 win at Colleton County on Friday, as all three members of “The Firm” posted double-doubles.
James Dennison poured in a career-high 35 points to go with 14 rebounds in a monster effort, his brother James Dennison nearly matched his incredible output with 27 points and 15 boards, and Zyrin Odom added 11 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Eagles past a scrappy Cougars team.
Mykeem Gant scored 26 points, Deshaun Blocker added 16, and Brian Hamilton chipped in 13 for the Cougars, who kept Beaufort at arm’s length all night.
After leading by four after one quarter, the Eagles surged out to a 42-27 halftime advantage, but the Cougars didn’t quit. They held the line in the third, trailing by 16 heading to the final quarter, and made some noise down the stretch before Beaufort held on.
Point guard Anderson Jones also had an excellent night for Beaufort with seven assists, five rebounds, and three steals.
Beaufort (7-4, 3-0) hosts May River in a key region clash Tuesday, while Colleton County (5-9, 1-5) hosts the Sharks on Friday.
