Senior Nyeem Green led the Cougars against Cane Bay scoring 23 points during the game with Senior Tristan Nieves and Senior De’iajae Ferguson closely behind scoring 19 and 18 points during the game. This week the Cougars kicked off their week with a home game against Beaufort High School and ended the week traveling to play Hilton Head High School.

This will be the end of the regular season for the Cougars this week as they will travel to Berkeley High School on Tuesday, February 6th and have their last home game on Thursday, February 8th against Stall High. If you have not had a chance to come out and support the Cougars this season, this would be a great time to show them support during their final week.
