The top seven in Class AAAAAAA remain unchanged as everybody handled their business. No. 5 Duluth had the best week with wins over Class 6A No. 3 Gainesville and Discovery (4-3). The Titans drop out of the Top 10 following their 60-55 loss to Duluth. They are replaced by Region 6 foe No. 9 Peachtree Ridge who beat rival No. 10 Collins Hill 75-64 in convincing fashion. A 55-39 win over Lakeside-Evans helps the Eagles cling onto the final spot. Region 6 fills spots No. 5, No. 8, No. 9 and No. 10 and a total of five of the seven teams in the region have already been ranked.

There is a new No. 1 in Class AAAAAA and it is the defending state champions, No. 1 Langston Hughes. The Panthers have won three in a row including blowing out Douglas County (2-2) from the rankings with a 78-43 win and handling Shiloh 61-41 behind Landers Nolley’s 27 points. For another year, there is more drama surrounding No. 3 Gainesville and this time it could be enough to derail the Red Elephants. They were drilled by Duluth 61-43 and will need to recalibrate as soon as possible before the season slips out of reach. No. 4 Brunswick shoots up six spots after defeating No. 6 Coffee 72-60, withstanding Preseason First-Team All-State selection Jayce Moore’s 39-point barrage. The coastal Region 2 now places three teams in the poll with Bradwell Institute holding tight at No. 5 and No. 10 Effingham County making their debut behind 6-foot-4 senior forward Kha’leed Stapleton. The Rebels have wins over two preseason ranked opponents in Class 3A’s Long County (74-52) and Class 2A No. 7 Swainsboro (65-57). No. 9 Tri-Cities slides three spots after losing to Westlake 82-69.

There are a handful of deserving teams waiting to break into the Class AAAAA rankings, but its been a stalemate thus far. No. 1 Warner Robins demolished Class 3A No. 7 Westside-Macon 89-63 behind Georgia State-signee Nelson Phillips’ 36 points and Jacolbey Owens’ 32. No. 7 Cedar Shoals falls four spots after losing to Class 3A No. 1 Morgan County 75-59 and Class 6A No. 2 Dacula 65-57. The Jaguars are now out of the woods with their difficult early non-region schedule, but things don’t get any easier as they open up Region 8 play on Tuesday at No. 2 Buford. Shakeup in Region 5 sees No. 3 Miller Grove rise two spots, No. 4 Columbia four spots and No. 5 Southwest DeKalb drop one spot after the Eagles held off the Panthers 66-64. Josh Taylor had 15 points and 8 rebounds in the win for Columbia while KD Johnson tallied 17 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists for Southwest DeKalb. No. 6 McIntosh inches up a slot after their wild 97-91 overtime win over Lambert where Bruce Carpenter scored a career-high 23 points and Cole Guenther added 22. No. 9 Lithonia, the fourth Region 5 team in the poll, scored a 60-51 win over Class 3A No. 3 Johnson-Savannah behind Ziven Alexander’s 23 points and 6 rebounds.

In Class AAAA, No. 2 St. Pius continued to marvel, hammering Carrollton 74-54 and Class 3A No. 9 Pace Academy 57-39, Everett Lane netting a game-high 18 points against the Knights. Pace Academy is already the third defending state champion the Golden Lions have beaten with Class 6A No. 1 Langston Hughes and Class A-Private’s Greenforest also victims. Don’t look now but Region 1 is invading the Top 10, quietly placing three teams in the poll. No. 5 Carver-Columbus, No. 6 Americus-Sumter and No. 9 Northside-Columbus all look sharp. The Tigers handled Kendrick and Spencer, the Panthers punished Monroe (60-43) and Lee County (68-48) while the Patriots knocked Westover (2-4) from the rankings with a 63-56 road win. Junior guard Jhaquez Anderson is pacing Northside-Columbus with 19.8 points, 5 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 3.8 steals per game while senior Jalen Tucker is contributing 14 points, 9.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 3 steals a night. No. 10 Baldwin is down six spots after losing to newly ranked Class 2A No. 9 Washington County, 72-71. All eyes will be on Tuesday night’s Region 2 showdown between No. 1 Upson-Lee and host No. 4 Mary Persons. Class AAAA’s two best players go toe-to-toe with Cam Holden (30.5 points, 12.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.5 steals, 2.3 blocks) leading the upset-minded Bulldogs against Middle Tennessee State-signee Tye Fagan (28.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.3 blocks).

No. 1 Morgan County is running away from the competition in Class AAA. Junior shooting guard Tyrin Lawrence dumped in 35 points in the Bulldogs’ 75-59 win over Cedar Shoals. The Bulldogs’ early season competition, No. 3 Johnson-Savannah, slips a spot after a 60-51 loss to Lithonia. No. 5 Cedar Grove also sinks a spot after failing to impress with a 56-46 win over 0-6 Lovett. No. 7 Westside-Macon received 34 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 blocks from Khavon Moore in a losing effort against Warner Robins. Westminster (3-3) had a short-lived stay in the Top 10 and is bounced after losses to Stone Mountain 46-44 and Woodward Academy 56-52. Debuting for the first time in years, is No. 10 Dawson County. The Tigers are off to their best start since 2013-14 when they finished 22-8 with a Sweet 16 appearance. Dawson County is loaded with shooters in Jeremiah Crumley, Cullen and Campbell Reed and Ryan Gallenkamp inside. They pushed Class 7A No. 10 Collins Hill to triple overtime in the Tiger Tip-Off Classic before losing 83-76 and bounced back this Friday with a 73-56 win over West Hall.

Class AA Preseason No. 1 Swainsboro finds themselves all the way down at No. 7 after beating Class A-Public No. 7 Wilkinson County 71-56 and Vidalia 52-48 before getting blown out by Statesboro 71-36.  The Tigers opened up last season 0-3 before finding their way to the state title game. Don’t give up on them just yet. No. 1 Glenn Hills took care of business against Richmond Academy, picking up a 68-54 win. Tim Williamson led the way with 21 points while Eric Farmer scored 13 and Timmy Sellers added 8 points. No. 2 Banks County survived a scare on the road at Hart County, who they beat earlier 94-58. The Leopards escaped Hartwell 49-48 thanks to sophomore Carl Cleveland’s 21 points and Dylan Orr’s triple-double of 17 points, 18 rebounds and 11 blocks. Swainsboro wasn’t the only team to tumble this week. No. 6 Dublin is down three spots after losing to Wilkinson County 71-67. Clarence Jackson did not play in his homecoming due to a sprained shoulder. Butler (1-4) and Therrell (4-4) both depart from the rankings after bad weeks. Back into the poll is No. 10 Monticello and debutant No. 9 Washington County, who beat Baldwin 72-71.

Class A-Private’s revolving door of rankings is in full swing as No. 7 Landmark Christian and No. 9 Mt. Vernon Presbyterian take over for Holy Innocents’ (1-4) and King’s Ridge Christian (2-1). The Tigers suffered a 76-44 loss to Milton that was just enough to edge them out of the poll. Landmark Christian made waves with a 90-87 win over No. 8 Stratford Academy. Micah McAllister is averaging over 18 points per game in the War Eagle backcourt. Mt. Vernon Presbyterian gets in thanks to their season opening win at Walker and a 30-point rout of Atlanta International. Their lone loss came to No. 6 Mt. Pisgah 73-58. The Patriots are up three spots but had to forfeit their season-opening 77-51 win over Tallulah Falls due to playing an ineligible player. The loss could hurt them in the long run with the power rankings system. No. 10 Lakeview Academy is holding on by a thread, down four spots after No. 1 St. Francis outclassed the Lions in the second half 83-56. Chase Ellis had 22 points and 8 rebounds while Dwon Odom collected 14 points and 10 assists.

In Class A-Public, the trio of JaQuavius Smith, ZyTavian Hill and Javares Copeland is averaging over 51 points per game for No. 2 Central-Talbotton. No. 5 Woodville-Tompkins is up four spots after snapping No. 10 Treutlen’s 42-game region winning streak, 72-65. For good measure, the Wolverines added a 74-42 thrashing of Portal behind Bernard Pelote’s 23 points and 12 rebounds. Woodville-Tompkins is in the Region 3 driver’s seat along with No. 4 Montgomery County, who is winning by an average of 45 points per game. Pelham (2-1) and Mt. Zion-Carrollton (0-0) drop from the poll. Pelham suffered a 74-72 loss to Mitchell County while the Eagles tip off their season this Tuesday. Into the Top 10 is No. 6 Hancock Central and No. 8 Lanier County. The Bulldogs beat rival No. 7 Wilkinson County 69-65 and their only loss came to Class 4A No. 10 Baldwin, 56-51. Lanier County surges into the statewide picture with a massive 85-57 win over No. 9 Wilcox County.

Vassell and Moss set tone as Peachtree Ridge races past rival No. 8 Collins Hill

Peachtree Ridge 75, No. 8 Collins Hill 64

Rivalry games bring out the best in both sides, but on Friday night, it was Peachtree Ridge (5-0) that took full advantage of their home crowd, riding the atmosphere to a controlling 75-64 victory. Looking for a statement win in the deep Region 6-AAAAAAA, the Lions proved that they are more than just a Devin Vassell one-man show.

A quick pace opened the game with both teams trading buckets. Senior point guard Darius Moss set the tone with seven quick points, pushing the ball in transition and attacking the basket. With No. 8 Collins Hill (5-1) primarily focused on stopping Vassell, the Florida State-signee allowed his teammates to flourish, 10 Lions scoring on the night. Vassell whipped in an assist to BJ Knight to give Peachtree Ridge a 20-15 lead after one.

Peachtree Ridge ignited a 12-4 run highlighted by a Vassell slam to take a 32-19 lead at the 5:05 mark in the second quarter and never let Collins Hill cut the deficit back to single digits the rest of the way.

While the Lions were using their balance, the Eagles were relying on Northern Illinois-signee Justin Lee, Elijah Wilson and Mandarius Dickerson to keep them in striking distance. Lee, 6-foot-8, opened the game with the first five points for Collins Hill and added in seven more in the second quarter to head into the half with 12 of his 19 points on the night. Wilson scored six of his nine points in the second quarter but was held scoreless in the second half.

Peachtree Ridge took a 43-32 lead into the half and extended it to as many as 17 points at 58-41 with under three minutes remaining in the third quarter. The Eagles closed on a 7-2 run and could have had even more momentum heading into the final stanza, but Chris Parks missed a breakaway dunk with 24 seconds left and Collins Hill had to settle for a 60-48 hole to dig out of in the fourth quarter after Dickerson netted nine of his team-high 21 points in the third.

Devin Vassell provided the kill-shot at the 5:37 mark of the fourth when he threw down his third dunk of the game to push the lead back to 17 at 67-50. Vassell finished with eight of his game-high 22 points in the final period to close out the Eagles.

My Take

After a fun first 8 minutes, it just looked like Peachtree Ridge wanted it more than their rivals. Devin Vassell poured in a smooth 22 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 blocks as the Seminole was in control the entire game and didn’t let the festive atmosphere affect him either way. It was Darius Moss who really provided the energy and paced the Lions attack early. He finished with 12 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists and did a nice job of keeping the pressure on Collins Hill’s guards in transition. 6-foot-11 250-pound junior post Richard Rivers opened up the game with a three-pointer and drilled two on the night. Rivers will be a covetable non-D-1 player with his size and shooting touch. If he can trim down and improve his mobility a little more, it will behoove him at the next level. BJ Knight did a good job of finishing around the rim and I really liked what I saw out of 6-foot-6 junior forward Amari Davis, who entered off the bench and instantly gave Coach Keith Arrington a post presence, collecting 7 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks.

Collins Hill was unable to match Peachtree Ridge’s non-stop energy. Mandarius Dickerson got his with 21 points (3 threes), but couldn’t help the Eagles climb their double-digit hill. Dickerson isn’t a flashy player and won’t necessarily standout, but the 6-foot-2 senior is always good for 14-18 points a night. He will help a program at the next level. Northern Illinois-signee Justin Lee showcased his beautiful touch, but it wasn’t just from the three-point line. He did a very nice job of working the mid-range to the paint and elevating over smaller defenders to kiss the ball off the glass. The only thing I didn’t like was his rebounding total. You can’t be 6-foot-8 in high school and not record a single rebound. I felt like junior Elijah Wilson came out strong in the first half and knocked down two threes, but the 6-foot-3 wing got lost in the shuffle in the second half and didn’t get many looks. I still feel like Collins Hill is at their best when Queens-signee Chris Parks is getting post touches. The 6-foot-5 bruiser’s opportunities were few and far between. I wish there was more of an effort to establish him inside, but credit Richard Rivers and Amari Davis for doing a good job of not allowing him to get position on the block. Senior guard Quincy Carter didn’t light up the scoreboard with 3 points, but he did everything else, tallying 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 steals.
