Three- point goals Harlem: 2 (Cullars, Prince). Richmond: 2 (Cody 2).

Harlem led Richmond throughout Tuesday’s region opener and finished with a 50-38 win in only their third game of the season. The Bulldogs, led in scoring by Patric Prince (12 points), Johnathan Howard (11) and Cedric Cullars (10), improved to 2-1 for the season while Richmond dropped to 2-5 overall. Cameron Thomas led all scorers with 13 points in the loss.

Harlem head coach Carlos Carter was pleased with his team’s overall effort, and he credited his players for their ability to handle the disappointment in not being able to play more games so far.

“Our players played well to close the game with our leading scorer (Prince) fouling out,” said Carter. “We played good team ball, and our bench contributed throughout the night.

“This has been a challenging season for obvious reasons, Carter continued. “I’m super proud of my team for their dedication and tenacity during this unprecedented time. They are happy to have a chance to compete, and I’m very happy for them.”
Region competition will only heat up from here for both teams. Harlem will travel to #7 Cross Creek (7-3) Friday before hosting Burke County (3-5) Saturday. Richmond will host Thomson (4-2) Friday and visit Hephzibah (2-2) Saturday.
