Hannah-Pamplico still searching for consistency

 Pamplico—If basketball games ended at halftime, the Hannah-Pamplico boys would be one of the state’s top teams. According to head coach Jimmy Williams, the Raiders have struggled to play for a full 32 minutes, contributing to the team’s 6-11 overall record.

“We’ve got to be more consistent. If you go back and look at the stats and box scores, we start fast and then fade. For some reason, we only play three or three and a half quarters. We’ll come out and jump on a team by 15 points by halftime and then have a terrible third or fourth quarter. We’ve got to take care of the ball better,” Williams said.

Hannah-Pamplico is 3-4 in conference play, leaving them firmly in the hunt for a berth in the Class AA playoffs. They recently got starting center Devon Mincey back from an injury suffered during football season, but will bring him along slowly.

He will try to provide an inside presence to balance the play of point guard Devin Daniels and guard Cam Profit. Daniels is averaging 18.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game while Profit is scoring 11.1 points to go with 2.7 steals.

Some of the other players Williams is hoping will continue to come on strong is forward Jalen Jenkins (5.1 rebounds) and reserve guard Jalin Eaddy (6 points). Guard Eric Mays (5.5 points, 4.6 rebounds) and guard Devian Coaxum are also contributing.

“You have to have other guys that can step up when other teams take away your best player. We need more guys that are willing to step up and get the job done when we need it,” Williams said. “Instead of just one player dominating and another guy scoring double figures, we need to spread it around. We need those other guys to want the ball.”

The Raiders grabbed some much-needed momentum with consecutive wins against Johnsonville and Kingstree, but now prepare for arguable their toughest stretch of the season.

Hannah-Pamplico hosts their next three contests, facing the top three teams in the conference in Carvers Bay, Mullins and East Clarendon.
