While the Spring Valley girls took over sole possession of first place in Region 4-4A with a win over previously unbeaten South Pointe Wednesday in Rock Hill, the reverse was true in the nightcap.
The host Stallions took sole possession of first place in the boys standings with a physical 89-75 win over Spring Valley in the nightcap. It was the first region loss for the Vikings (7-4, 2-1).
South Pointe scored the first 10 points of the game before the Vikings got settled. SV chipped away and eventually cut the Stallions lead top 57-56 at the outset of the fourth quarter. But foul trouble doomed the Vikings in the fourth quarter when all five starters fouled out.
Ronald Zimmerman led Spring Valley with 24 points, Jameel Jones scored 12 and Ryan Jenkins and Trey Duncan scored 10 apiece.
