Playoff brackets set for both Bulldog teams
Both the girls' and boys' varsity basketball teams will tip-off action in the South Carolina Class AAAA playoffs this week. The girls will be on the road at Aiken High School on Tuesday, while the boys will host Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School on Wednesday.

The girls' road trip will be their first playoff appearance since the 2014-15 season ended with a first-round defeat at Stall. Marlboro enters the game with a much more impressive resume than the Lady Green Hornets. However, playing in Region 6-AAAA left Marlboro in fourth place with a 16-8 overall record, 4-6 in the region.

Despite loss to NMB, Bulldogs claim region title
It didn't happen exactly as the Marlboro County boys hoped, but after all the results are in, the Bulldogs are the Region 6-4A champs.
The Bulldogs entered Tuesday night's regular season finale against North Myrtle Beach needing a win to lock up the title. They didn't get that but they did get a Hartsville upset of Myrtle Beach, which secured the championship.
"North Myrtle Beach played a tough, physical game tonight. They are a good team, and they gave us motivation going forward in the post season," said MCHS head coach LaTroy Brace.
"We simply just got outplayed and out-hustled. At the end of the day, we still walked away region champs. So that’s all that matters. It rained on our parade a bit but we have plans for a bigger and better parade," said Brace.
The Chiefs pulled out a 59-57 victory, scoring the winning basket with 5.8 seconds to play. The Bulldogs used two timeouts to set up a potential tying or winning shot but never managed to get off an attempt.

Bulldogs host NMB with region title on the line
Tuesday night, the Marlboro County High varsity boys will host North Myrtle Beach with a lot at stake. The Bulldogs need a victory over NMB to seal their first region title since the 2015-16 season.
The Bulldogs blasted Wilson 57-25 Friday to guarantee a share of the title, but they will need a victory Tuesday, or a Myrtle Beach loss to Hartsville to lock up the championship.
"If we end up in a tie with Myrtle Beach, they would get the top seed in the playoffs because they would win the tie-breaker," confirmed head coach LaTroy Brace Monday morning.
The Bulldogs and Chiefs will tip-off immediately following the girls' contest, which starts at 6 p.m.

Bulldogs roll by Hartsville, remain unbeaten in region
After a sluggish first quarter, the Marlboro County High boys' basketball team rallied past Hartsville, 65-49 Tuesday night. With the home victory, the Bulldogs remain undefeated in region play and maintain a two-game lead with just four games remaining in the regular season.
"Hartsville is a tough, scrappy team and we withstood and answered their defensive effort. It just shows the maturity of the team and how they have each other’s back on the court," said MCHS head coach LaTroy Brace.

Bulldogs begin region play as familiar face returns to the court

The Marlboro County Bulldogs will kick off the region campaign Friday night as they host the Wilson Tigers.
Both the boys' and girls' teams enter the critical part of the schedule with optimism.  
The Lady Bulldogs (10-1) have been rolling, blasting opponents with an impressive offensive attack.  Junior Jasmine Norman and sophomore Tysonia Lowe have been lighting up the scoreboard, each averaging over 20 points per contest.
However, region play will raise the level of competition significantly.  Last year, the Lady Bulldogs were not able to win a Region 6-4A contest.  
All five of their region rivals have impressive records, led by North Myrtle Beach.
The Lady Chiefs are 12-1, with a championship in a Georgia holiday tournament.
