Playoff Preview: 5A, 2A girls; 3A boys

By Jed Blackwell/The Spartanburg Sports Report

The South Carolina High School League basketball playoffs will continue in the area Tuesday night, with a full schedule of games.

Three teams will host games, with the Dorman girls hosting Fort Mill in 5A girls; the Chapman boys hosting Fairfield Central in 3A; and the Landrum girls hosting Saluda in 2A.

Chapman, the No. 2 seed from Region III-3A, is led by Tyrell Oglesby, who averages 19.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.9 steals per game. Shaundre Miller is also a standout for the Panthers, averaging 13.9 points and 3.9 assists.

The high-octane Panthers will face a Griffins team that is led by 6-4 senior wing player Chandon Davis, an athletic inside/out threat. Defensively, the Griffins play man-to-man and a 1-2-2 zone, and like to get up and down the floor.

In other 3A boys action, Broome will visit Chester.

Dorman, the Region III-5A champion, has the advantage of the home bracket throughout the Upper State playoffs. The Lady Cavaliers would technically be the visiting team should they advance to Upper State at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena, but all games to advance that far would be at home as long as Dorman continues to win.

The Lady Cavaliers are coming off a strong finish in region play and are led by senior post Jasmine Webb, who’s averaging nearly a double-double on the season, and by freshman guard Alexis Rice, who’s averaging more than 15 points per game.

Other 5A girls matchups involving area teams include Byrnes visiting Clover and Boiling Springs on the road at Rock Hill.

Landrum, the No. 2 seed from Region I-2A, will host a Saluda team which dropped a second-place tiebreaker in Region III to Saluda on Saturday.
