Get ready for a big night of high school basketball around the South Carolina Lowcountry with Lowco Hoops Live! We’ll update the scores and stats throughout the night for our Patreon supporters!
We select our Starting Five of the top players of the week, along with a few standouts we’re keeping “in the rotation,” as well as a Team of the Week, and highlight the biggest game of the upcoming week. Here’s this week’s installment of the Lowco Girls Hoops Spotlight presented by 4M Metals.
We’ve had the opportunity to watch our high school football players across the Lowco shine all year long, but there’s something special about the Blitz Border Bowl, especially for those standouts still hoping to find a home at the next level.
Calvary Day’s Hannah Cail poured in 27 points and the Cavaliers cashed in at the foul line late to close out a 52-45 road win at Hilton Head Christian Academy in the latest installment of the area’s best interstate girls basketball rivalry.
Deep in the third quarter of Saturday’s Blitz Border Bowl at Savannah’s Memorial Stadium, Team Lowco was facing a 13-point deficit that almost seemed insurmountable — especially considering the offense had yet to put points on the board. Then, in just a blink of an eye, a group of determined Lowco stars flipped the script — and brought the Blitz Border Border trophy back home.
They may have taken nearly a month off from in-game action, but the John Paul II Golden Warriors are off and running in region play. Mark Knight poured in 23 points, and the Golden Warriors held off Isaiah Anderson and Hilton Head Christian Academy on Friday for a 48-38 road win to stay unbeaten in SCISA Region 4-2A.
The Cage was riled up at the end of one quarter Tuesday night at Hilton Head Christian Academy, but it was only a matter of time before Hilton Head Prep’s talent-laden boys basketball team quieted the home crowd and cruised to a 61-26 win.
Hilton Head Prep’s girls basketball team caused its share of havoc on defense Tuesday night, but Hilton Head Christian Academy was even better at the defensive end and Skylar Smith scored 11 of her game-high 14 points to help the Eagles pull away for a 44-27 home win over their archrival.
