The No. 2 team in Class 2A was too much for Whale Branch boys basketball to handle for the second time in eight days, as Wade Hampton used a quick start and a career night from Brendon Brantley to cruise to a 58-43 road win Saturday in Seabrook.
Brantley rained in nine 3-pointers en route to 31 points to lead the way for the Red Devils, who ran out to 26-12 halftime lead and extended it to a 17-point advantage by the end of the third quarter.
Whale Branch found more success in the fourth, but the deficit was too large to overcome. AJ Singleton led the Warriors with 17 points, while Queshawn Fields added 12, and Jashaun Gillison had eight.
Isaac Gray scored nine points for Wade Hampton, and Jamian Risher added seven points, three assists, and three steals fresh off his MVP performance in the Blitz Border Bowl earlier in the day.
Whale Branch (9-6, 5-1) hosts Charleston Math & Science for a region game Tuesday.
