The defending 5A champions travel to James Island on Jan. 24 and host rival Stratford High School on Jan. 28 before beginning the second trip through the region slate on Jan. 31 at home against Cane Bay.

“We put some things in over Christmas break and our senior leadership is so strong,” Goose Creek coach Tim Baldwin said.
They understand it’s just about winning the basketball game, whether it’s by one or 20. They’re bringing the younger players along.”

A pair of senior guards power the Lady Gators in the scoring department. Point guard Aniyah Oliver, who has signed with Francis Marion, leads the team at 12.5 points per game, followed by shooting guard Kolia Adams at 11.3 points per game.

“The two senior guards have been fun to watch, just the way they execute the offense.” Baldwin said. “We have to scrap for everything we get.”

Senior post player Janise Shaw is the third leading scorer for the Lady Gators with a 9.7 average.

Sophomore guard Sharriah Green and senior forward Jakara Johnson contributed 5.5 and 4.6 points a game.

Shaw is the top rebounder with 7.5 boards per game while Adams and Johnson average four-plus rebounds.

Oliver is out front in assists (4.9) and steals (2.8).

The Lady Gators are ranked fourth in the state by the South Carolina Basketball Coaches Association.

The Goose Creek boys basketball team had won four straight games but has slipped up the last two, falling by single digits to Berkeley (44-37) and Wando (41-37).

The Gators are 7-11 overall and 1-2 in the region.

Malichi Williams scored 15 points and Xavion Bennett added eight for the Gators against Wando.
