Southside Goes Back to Back (Greenville News Story)
Southside entered 2017-18 as the defending state champions and clear cut team to beat in Class AAA. They returned four starters from the 16-17 title team and lost only one senior off that team. Junior Center Jamal Burke, who played a minimal role in 16-17, blossomed into an All-State performer and the Tigers went unbeaten within the state of South Carolina this season. In the playoffs, Southside marched through the Upper State bracket and faced Ridgeland-Hardeeville in the championship game. RJ Campbell paved the way scoring 20 points and grabbing 8 boards as the Tigers went back to back.
