The Bulldogs host Hartsville on Tuesday.

In Region 5-3A, Brookland-Cayce (6-6, 3-1) took over sole possession of first place with a 72-62 win over Chapin, which has lost two in a row since getting off to a 2-0 start in region play, including an upset win over Lower Richland.

In other games, A.C. Flora and Dreher both picked up their first region wins.

Flora (3-9, 1-2) beat Midland Valley 59-56 with a balanced scoring attack featuring Desmond McDaniel (17 points), Matthew Howard (11) and Wildfred Roach (10). Quayshun Hawkins, who recently scored the 1,000th point of his career, led Dreher (9-7, 1-2) to a 54-38 rout of host Airport.
