Spring Valley, M-C score rare Monday hoop wins

Spring Valley’s girls and Mid-Carolina’s boys scored wins in rare Monday night outings. The top-ranked Vikings thumped Sumter at home, while the Rebels dumped Class 3A Union County 58-46.

Spring Valley jumped out to a 20-3 lead by the end of the first quarter and cruised to a 59-38 conquest of the Gamecocks.

Xylina McDaniel paced the Vikings with 19 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and four steals and three blocked shots, but the sophomore star had plenty of support. Asia Dozier had 14 points and nine boards, Shaquita Walker contributed 14 points, five rebounds, five steals and two assists to the cause and Jocelyn Lawrence chipped in eight points and 10 rebounds.

Calvin Herbert had a huge game for Mid-Carolina, which bounced back from a poor outing in a Friday loss to Chapin and improved to 3-2 on the season. Herbert rang up 22 points, 24 rebounds and four steals. His stellar work on the boards was good for a new single-game school record.

Krishawn Holley and C.J. Edwards also had big games for the Rebels. Holley joined Herbert in double-double land with 12 points and 16 rebounds. Edwards had a solid all around outing, finishing with six points, six steals, six offensive rebounds and three assists.

M-C’s incredible rebounding effort helped offset another bad shooting night. The Rebels converted just 33% of its field goal attempts, but their eye-opening 34 rebounds helped create 71 shots from the field.
