Friday’s area sports briefs

From staff reportsJanuary 18, 2013 

The Myrtle Beach/North Myrtle Beach rivalry is very much alive and well, with all the action and intensity that comes with it, culminating in a 70-58 Myrtle Beach win.

“There was definitely an electricity in the air tonight,” Seahawks coach Craig Martin said. “The intensity was really high in there. We enjoy playing [at North Myrtle Beach]; they have great fans and they’re probably one of the best teams in the state.”

Best team in the state or not, home-court advantage didn’t appear to help much as Myrtle Beach’s Nolin Butler emerged a major factor, scoring 20 points to keep the Chiefs down.

“Nolin played a great game, he’s just an all-around great player,” Martin said. “He does a great job with the ball, he plays great at both ends. There’s not a lot of guys who can do what he does at both ends of the court.”

For the Chiefs, Jaquan Grisset kept North Myrtle Beach in it, scoring 28 points. Still, the Chiefs were far from the front.

The majority of the scoring was done in the second quarter, but the Seahawks’ defensive presence left little for North Myrtle Beach to do but hustle.

“Defense was key,” Martin said. “We pride ourselves in playing hard-nosed defense, and we kept that intensity all night.”

The Seahawks improved to 8-9 on the season, while the Chiefs fell to 13-5.

“Nolin led us, but it was a team win,” Maritn concluded. “Everyone gave a good effort, and we just have to keep the intensity up and we’ll be fine.”
