Prep Hoops took in the action to start the basketball season here in the Palmetto State. 

The Zaxby’s Tip Off Classic kicked off on Friday night here in Summerton at Scott’s Branch HS. Prep Hoops was able to get over here to cover some girls action of course over on (Prep Girls Hoops) and the Boy’s Championship Game. 

Sumter HS vs Gray Collegiate (Championship Game) 

The War Eagles jumped out to a 27-22 lead at halftime over the Gamecocks. Sumter HS led the War Eagles 37-31 starting the 4th quarter. The Gray Collegiate War Eagles took over in the final frame and outscored the Gamecocks 21-4 in to win 52-41. Gray Collegiate went on 16-2 run to finish out the game and win the Zaxby’s Tip Off Classic. 

Several players were missing out this weekend. Football is still a priority in the Palmetto State. Gray Collegiate and Sumter HS both advanced this past weekend in the 2nd round of the football playoffs. Both of teams not at full strengths will both be tough outs down the road with a full roster.
