One of the best girls high school basketball teams in our area is in Lancaster, SC.
The Lady Bruins of Lancaster High School are off to a 16-0 start and ranked #1 in 3A basketball in South Carolina.
Truly a surprise team with only 3 seniors on the team and only one player, Malia Rivers, averaging in double figures in scoring.
Despite that lack of scoring punch the ladies average margin of victory is 28 points per win. They credit that to great team basketball and outstanding defense.
This program has never won a state championship and only have 3 region titles in the program history. Big time success on the floor this year is a driving force as they feel they can accomplish some great things on the floor.
Another reason for this team success is the way the 2014 season ended. The Lady Bruins would go undefeated in region play and claim the region title, but lost in the 1st round of the state playoffs 28-24 to Wade Hampton.
