Craig Martin’s team made a statement with a 19-point win over No. 6 North Myrtle Beach to open region play.
And yet the 10th year Myrtle Beach head coach didn’t need too much help thinking of something to fine-tune.
“These guys have a standard of what they want to do and how they want to play,” Martin said after his team beat the Chiefs on Friday. “We’ve got a lot of improvements we’ve got to make.
“I’ve been doing this a long time, so there are all kinds of things I can find [to nitpick]. … We’ve just got to clean it up. We turned it over quite a bit.”
Although the Seahawks were up by 20 at halftime on Friday, it could have been much more. Myrtle Beach had a messy run in the final minutes of the first half and another in the second that prevented Martin’s squad from running away it earlier than it did.
But some of that could have been expected after three games in four days, two of those game being non-region wins over St. James and Conway.
Now, the schedule will feel a little more streamlined for a team that got some positive momentum going in December with a runner-up finish at the Panther Classic at Carolina Forest and picking up a with at the Beach Ball Classic.
 
REGION GAMES TO WATCH
Hartsville at North Myrtle Beach (girls), Friday: No matter what happens against Wilson on Tuesday, the Chiefs either won’t be able to afford a second straight defeat or won’t want to give up crucial early ground.
Conway at Carolina Forest (boys), Friday: Both teams started out region play with a win, and both easily could be 2-0 when they match up for the first time this season.
