Eagles’ run ends with quarterfinal loss to Griffins


Sully Gay had a big game to lead Beaufort Academy boys basketball to a 64-44 win over Northside Christian on Saturday in the opening round of the SCISA 2A playoffs at Orangeburg Prep, but the Eagles’ season ended with a 63-39 loss to Spartanburg Day on Tuesday at Cardinal Newman in Columbia.

Gay turned in another outstanding performance to lead the Eagles in the opener, scoring 23 points while grabbing double-digit rebounds. Reliable guard Braydon Dineen stayed hot with 13 key points, and center Amarion Wilson scored 10.

“We came out of the gate a little slow but made some halftime adjustments,” BA coach Nick Field said. “The boys responded well and executed very well. Sully Gay and Braydon Dineen refused to lose and everyone followed suit. A lot of tough local teams went down today. We are proud to try to keep it going for the Lowcountry.”

But the Eagles hit the end of the road against Spartanburg Day, falling behind early and struggling to find success at the offensive end. Dineen led the way for BA with 14 points, while Wilson added eight and Gay was limited the six.

BA finishes its season with a 32-8 record.
