    White's Bomb Litis South Brunswick
BY JOHNNY CRAIG
South Brunswick sophomore
guard Josh White said ii was the
special kind of situation that Cougar
coach Gene Doane makes his bas
ketball team practice "too much."
However, White wasn't com
plaining last Friday after he weaved
through several West Brunswick de

sank a desperation 35-foot bomb
with two seconds left to give his
South Brunswick Cougars a 76-74
Waccamaw 2-A Conference win
over host West Brunswick.
"With five seconds remaining in
the game, going the length of the
court was no problem," said a
drenched Doane following the con
test. "We work on special situations
like dribbling from foul line to foul
line with the clock on with inree
seconds left in practice. With the
extra few seconds 1 knew he had
time to weave his way down court"
"Granted, you won't make many
shots like Josh made tonight, but the
area at the top of the key is where
he shoots from during spot drills in
practice. The game-winner came
just a little ways beyond this same
area," added Doane, who donned a
tuxedo for the contest in praise, of
his imam's unbeaten league season.
In addition to giving South
Brunswick 14-0 WC regular-season
record, the win also gave the
Cougars (20-3 overall) the county
cage championship and their fourth
straight triumph over the Trojans.
The Cougars, now riding a 14
game winning streak, clinched the
league championship earlier last
week (Tuesday) with a 72-70 win
over Whitevillc (sec story this sec
tion). As result. South Brunswick
earned a first-round bye in the sec
tional playoffs that begin Monday
and were to have been one of two
boys opening-round host sites for
the Waccamaw Conference tourna
ment on Tuesday.
An estimated crowd of 2,200
packed the ho: and steamy Trojan
gym filling the bleachers and lining
the floor from end to end.

TIGHT GAME-lMst Friday's South Brunswick ? West Brunswick
boys' basketball game was a tight affair as the Trojans' Jerry
Reaves (left) and the Cougars' Greg Williams (right) indicate.
South Brunswick won the Waccamaw 2-A Conference regular
season finale over the Trojans 76-74 on Josh White's three-point
bomb at the buzzer.
Over Trojans 76-74
put South Brunswick ahead 73-72
with only 55 seconds remaining.
Daniels put West Brunswick on
top for the Final time, 74-73 with
what looked to be the winning bas
ket after rebounding a missed shot.
"Kevin Smith really killed us
down the stretch," said West
Brunswick coach Billy Mims.
"We've got a lot of respcct for
Williams, White and McGriff but 1
honestly didn't think Smith could
shoot that good."
"I thought we defended White's
game-winning shot as good as we
could. We had a hand in his face
when he went up for the shot out it
just fell in. The kids did exactly
what 1 wanted them to do."
"I.onnie Mitchell got in foul trou
ble and had to sit out awhile.
However, James Clarida came in
and did a good job in his absence."
"We played good enough to win
but just didn't get a total team effort
out of some of our key players."
"South Brunswick can hurt you
in a lot of different ways. They've
got a lot of depth," added Minis.
Daniels led West Brunswick (11
3, 19-4) with 29 points followed by
Johnson with 10 and Mitchell nine.
Williams scored 21 points to lead
South Brunswick followed by
Smith's 15 and While's 12. McGriff
