Joyce Edwards scored 25 points and added 22 rebounds to lead Camden (SC) to a 62-42 victory over Keenan (SC) in a girls’ basketball showcase game in a rematch of last year’s Class 3A state championship. It was the first time in the 20-year history of the Chick-fil-a Classic that featured a girls contest.
Edwards is the No. 2 ranked junior in the country. With coaches from South Carolina, Baylor and Notre Dame watching from courtside, Edwards didn’t disappoint in the rematch against MiLaysia Fulwiley and the Raiders. Fulwiley is the No. 13 senior in the country by ESPN and signed with South Carolina in November.
Fulwiley had a rough night shooting in scoring 18 points with seven rebounds, seven steals, and six assists. She was just 7-of-29 from the field.
Tateyoina Harris added 21 rebounds for the Bulldogs. Camden had a 62-29 rebound advantage. Braylin Mungo added 13 points and Zyasia Carter chipped in 11 for Camden.
The championship game last year was an instant classic with Keenan prevailing 60-58 in that game. Fulwiley ended that game with 41 points and 17 rebounds. Edwards had 24 points and 14 rebounds in that game.
