Goose Creek – The Wade Hampton Red Devils look to snap a two game losing streak when they visit May River on Friday in a key region contest. May River is also in the midst of a two game losing streak of their own.

“We knew Ridgeland-Hardeeville and Whale Branch are good teams but we didn’t play our best against them. We have to play better if we want to get back in the region race and it starts Friday,” said head coach Romon Gray.

The Red Devils currently sit at 11-5/ 2-1 and with a win they will be in sole possession of second place in region 7 AAA. May River comes into the game at 7-5/0-1.The Sharks region loss was to region favorite Ridgeland-Hardeeville. They swept the season series against Beaufort and Hilton Head.

“We got off to a good start but we have hit a bump in the road,” said head coach Romon Gray. “We haven’t played to our standard and have had some break downs in our past couple of games.”

Coach Gray will look to team captains in junior guard Samuel Gray and senior guards Tyshon Grant and Josh Walker to get the team back on track. They are also three of the five starters for Coach Gray.

Rounding out the starting five are junior Quayshon Williams and sophomore Brandon Brantley.

Senior Brandon Brantley and juniors Kalihl Busby and Evan McCuthchen provide depth of the bench.

Gray continued, “I am really proud of the team that we have put together this year. Not only are they performing on the court, but they are performing in the classroom as well. We have excellent leadership on this team which should help down the stretch.”
