Editor's note: This story has been updated to include the correct name of the Loris basketball coach.
The Lions secured their second win in a row, this one coming against Lincoln 74-62, but coach Travis Scott isn’t celebrating just yet.
“We’re not where we need to be to compete in this region,” Scott said. “We played well enough to get the win, and I’d always rather win ugly than lose pretty, but to compete in our region we need to be able to stay at a high intensity for 32 minutes.”
Tyree Floyd had back-to-back breakout performances, scoring nearly half of the Lions’ points at 35. Floyd was also responsible for 34 points, 25 rebounds, four assists and a steal in Loris’ OT thriller against Green Sea on Friday night. Floyd finished Friday’s game 14-of-22 from the field.
“Tyree Floyd is just amazing,” Scott boasted. “He’s just playing some really good basketball right now and I couldn’t be more proud of him.”
