Camden rebounded impressively from its first loss of the season on Wednesday, smoking Lakewood 78-57 in a Region 6-3A boys basketball outing in Sumter.
Evrick Gary led the Bulldogs (14-1, 3-1) with 19 points, while Jay and Josh Council tallied 18 and 10 points, respectively.
Camden hosts Marlboro County in a key game on Friday. If the Bulldogs prevail, they will assure themselves at least a share of first place in the region standings going into the second half of the conference campaign.
MC, which is 3-0 in region matters, has a big weekend on tap. After the trip to Camden on Friday the Bulldogs from Bennettsville host Wilson (2-1) on Saturday.
