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.

Bulldogs blast Central, 78-37

Marlboro County rode a strong first quarter to a huge lead, enroute to blowing out Central of Pageland  Monday night at home.  The Bulldogs cruised to a 78-37 victory.
Ryan Dupree opened the game with a short jump shot, blocked an Eagle shot, then raced for a layup to get the Bulldogs off to a quick start.  Devonta Oliver nailed a three-pointer, then senior Wesley Brown scored on back-to-back possessions as the Bulldogs raced to a 13-4 advantage.
By the end of the first quarter, the Bulldogs led 20-5 and the reserves were on the court for Marlboro County.
The Bulldogs continued to pull away in the second period, led by a three-pointer from Shawn Lucas, a layup by Kieran Leviner and a jumper by Jameik McCoy.  
Marlboro led 40-14 at intermission.  After a sluggish third quarter, the Bulldogs reignited the offense in the fourth, outscoring their guests 25-11.

Academy turns to Hubbard to rebuild boys’ hoops program

After some severe struggles the last three years, Marlboro Academy has turned to a familiar face to resurrect the boys’ basketball program.
"There are several challenges in getting us back on solid ground.  The students lack confidence and are having to learn to play with structure," said Hampton Hubbard.
Hubbard played for a state championship when he was a student at the Academy in the 1970s.  He later taught and coached at the Academy and in the Marlboro County School District.
After retiring from public education, Hubbard rejoined the faculty of the Academy.  Last spring, soon after it was announced that the previous coaching staff would not be returning, Hubbard agreed to take the reins.
