Oceanside Collegiate boys take early lead in region 6-AA

Mt. Pleasant – With four early victories in the region 6-AA schedule, the boys basketball team at Oceanside Collegiate has taken control of the race for the region championship.

Oceanside Collegiate beat North Charleston, 86-76, on January 15th to improve to 4-0 in region play with a game against Burke coming on January 18. The Landsharks also notched region wins over Timberland, Garrett Tech and Philip Simmons to take a one-game lead.

The Landsharks, coached by Quinton Hollis, posted their most impressive win over North Charleston, a team ranked in the state’s AA top 10 since the preseason. And, Oceanside Collegiate got the win in a different manner of most of their early season victories.

Oceanside is known for their outstanding guard play with seniors Shane McCravy and Isaiah Archie. McCravy is averaging 15.8 points and 6.5 rebounds per game while Archie, who recently scored his 1000th career point, is averaging 14.1 points per game.

In the win over North Charleston, Hollis turned the game over to his big men – senior forwards Adyn Kirby and Jace Stern, who combined for 42 of the team’s 86 points. Stern (6-6) posted a career-high 24 points after averaging just 5.9 points for the season. Kirby (6-7) averages 7.4 points per game for the season but scored a season-high 18 points in the win.

Two other key contributors this season are junior Sam Crowley (7.3 ppg) and senior Jakari Moultrie (5.9 ppg).

While taking early command in the region is nice, the Landsharks have plenty of work left ahead of them, including a rematch with North Charleston and a second game with Burke, as well as round two with the other teams in the region.
