HANAHAN - Bishop England’s boys basketball team continued the destruction of anything in its path in its Region 7-AAA opener Friday.

The number two ranked Bishops traveled to Hanahan and coasted, 68-32, in front of a packed house. They moved to 15-0 overall and 1-0 in the region, gaining all the traction they needed in the opening half.

The Bishops built a 39-13 advantage at the break to snuff out any chance of an upset.

“Any time you go on the road, it’s important to get off to a good, fast start,” Bishop England coach Bryan Grevey said. “Obviously the goal is to win. When you can do that on the road in the region, it’s a great win. We came over here with one goal in mind, and that was to leave here 1-0 in the region. Now, we’ve got nine super tough region games to play.”

Guard Aidan McCool led three Bishops in double figures with 16 points while center Daniel Brooks and forward Cameron Costa added 12 and 10 points respectively. Guard Jack Rider chipped in seven points.

Brooks powered the Bishops on the boards with nine rebounds and forward Ty Schaafsma tracked down eight boards. Guard Patrick Antonelli dished out five assists.

“They’re definitely the real deal,” Hanahan coach Pieter Smits said. “They’ve got a point guard who doesn’t turn the ball over and is unselfish. Their guards can shoot the ball and their big man killed us on the boards, finished around the rim and made his free throws.”

Bishop England is at Wando on Saturday in a non-region game and returns to region play at Waccamaw on Jan. 14.

“We don’t look at the records or the rankings,” Grevey said. “We’re taking everything one game at a time. The thing this team does really well is they play really well as a unit. There is so much unselfishness on this team. These guys don’t care who scores. All they’re about is winning. Tomorrow is another test.”

Hanahan fell to 3-13. The Hawks host Academic Magnet on Jan. 14.
