Donavan Hodge – South Aiken

Region rivals South Aiken and North Augusta met last night for the second time in four days, and AugBball’sSeth Wesley was there so we could bring you the full game highlights and scoring details below. Even though the host Yellow Jackets excited fans with a few fantastic plays that we placed at the beginning of the highlight video, the Thoroughbreds prevailed to complete the season sweep and begin the 8 game regular season region slate 2-0.


It’s still early, but the importance of South Aiken’s pair of wins over the back-to-back region champions cannot be overstated. Unlike in Georgia, South Carolina has no region tournaments, so the state tournament seeds for these two teams, along with Midland Valley (2-0), Aiken (0-0) and Airport (0-1), depend on the results of these 8 league games.

South Aiken    12 19 14 24    –    69
North Augusta    14 11 24 14    –    63


    South Aiken – Omarion Chandler 1 0-0 2, Jeffery Jackson 1 2-2 4, Jonathan Burns 7 3-4 19, Gabe Robinson 4 4-4 12, Nick Hodge 2 2-3 6, Donavan Hodge 5 5-8 15, Delwin Hodge 5 0-0 11. Totals: 25 16-21 69.

    North Augusta – Colin Rodrigues 6 2-7 15, Naijah Buchanan 3 3-6 9, Jordan Wilburn 7 0-1 14, Elijah Hall 2 0-0 4, Amarri Wilcher 1 0-0 2, Austin Harrell 5 0-0 12, Terry Richberg 1 3-6 5, Kortez Jones 1 0-0 2. Totals: 26 8-20 63.

Three-point goals – South Aiken: 3 (Burns 2, Hodge).

“Sophomore Malik Ferguson picked up a loose ball in the middle of the paint with one second remaining, and right before the fourth quarter buzzer sounded, he released a shot that found its mark to give Grovetown 61-60 win over Evans Friday, a result that threw the top spot in the class 6A, region 5 standings into a three way tie between Grovetown, Evans and Heritage to mark the beginning of the stretch run for the league’s regular season championship. Ferguson’s shot came at the end of a full court dash by Grovetown after head coach Darren Douglas was able to draw up a play during a timeout that was meant to result in a bucket in only six seconds. The play was designed for senior Zach Bell, who eventually fumbled the ball after spinning between defenders at the end of a drive that began near half court after he gathered the ball from freshman Derrion Reid.”

That was Chad Cook’s rundown of the instant classic that these two teams played two weeks ago. That win by Grovetown sets up a must-win scenario for Evans as they look to maintain their footing in the race for a region championship.

Be sure to get your ? ready early because if tonight’s game is as exciting as the last one, you just might forget those jokers altogether!

Girls – 6:30 PM
