The St. John’s Cavaliers’ hope for a SCISA Regaion 3A championship came to an abrupt end against an old foe.

The Cavaliers fell in the SCISA Region 3A semifinals 59-49 to Faith Christian Academy last week.

“We played a good game overall and our season continues in the state tournament this week,” said Cavs Coach Bob Winters. “We’ll know our fate on Wednesday.”

The Cavaliers finish the regular season with a 13-7 record overall, but fell to the Knights for the third time in 2014.

All Region players Damian Hurta and Jalen Ward each eclipsed the 1,000 point mark for their basketball careers against Faith Christian.

Hurta had 17 points for SJCA to total 1,006 points for his career and Ward had 14 points to top out at 1,003. Greg Gamble also chipped in 12 points to help pace St. John’s.

Against James Island Christian, Hurta led the Cavaliers with 19 points, one of five players to score in double figures, in the 84-36 win in the first round of the playoffs.

Ward added 15 points, Gamble 14, and Dustin Parsons and Connor Thornton had 10 each.

A trio of Cavaliers,

Hurta, Ward, and Greg Gamble were all chosen by the opposing coaches as all-region players.

“These three players have been the backbone of our team’s success this season,” said Coach Bob Winters. “Being named to the All-Region team was a well-deserved honor.”

The Cavaliers playoff opponent in the SCISA state tournament will be determined on Wednesday, with play beginning on Feb. 21.
