The final week of the regular season is upon us. Some regions have already wrapped up their schedule while the majority finish up over the next few days. With that being said, please send region tournament brackets along with All-Region Teams to kylesandy355@gmail.com in order to be added to the Master Schedule which will be updated in real-time with final scores throughout the postseason.

For the first time since Week 7, there is no change to the Class 7A rankings. No. 1 Pebblebrook rallied to beat No. 6 McEachern 76-75, Jaiun Simon sinking a late free throw to complete the come back from down nearly 20 points in the third quarter. Rider-signee Kami Young scored 22 points followed by Jordan Brown’s 18 and Troy-signee Andre Young’s 14. McEachern got 17 apiece from Jalen Hilliard and Braden Sparks. No. 2 Newton held off No. 7 Grayson 70-68 withstanding 19 points from Clemson-signee Chauncey Wiggins. No. 5 North Gwinnett beat last week’s Class 6A No. 2 Shiloh 59-52 on the road, Clemson-signee RJ Godfrey collecting 21 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists.

There were some major results in Class 6A, headlined by No. 1 Wheeler surviving No. 7 Osborne in overtime 69-67, Appalachian State-signee Zocko Littleton’s last second three coming a fraction after the buzzer. Radford-signee Kyle Burns scored 20 points to pace the Wildcats. Osborne is down two more spots and has been a mirror image of No. 4 Shiloh, the last two teams to lose in the classification. Both are now riding three-game losing streaks as Osborne also fell 49-48 to Allatoona while Shiloh’s perfect season was shattered with an 0-3 week losing 59-44 at Habersham Central, 46-42 at Lanier and 59-52 to Class 7A No. 5 North Gwinnett, dropping the Generals two spots and now likely needing to beat No. 5 Buford to have a chance at the one-seed heading into the region tournament. No. 3 Alexander is red-hot, winning nine in a row with their latest a 66-59 victory over Cumberland Christian, Zion Fruster tallying 18 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals.

No. 1 Eagle’s Landing has been the most consistent team in Class 5A, recording a 71-52 win over Stockbridge to stay ahead of the pack. No. 2 St. Pius X slept walked through the first half against Northview down 28-15 at the break, but woke up for a 73-58 win behind Grant Rowe’s 20 points, 16 coming in the second half. No. 5 Jonesboro slips two places with a 70-64 loss to Creekside. Coach Omari Forts won his 300th game after No. 3 Tri-Cities beat Drew (70-27) and Banneker (75-51).

No. 2 Monroe finished a perfect regular season in Region 1-4A, going 10-0 with wins over No. 3 Westover (60-59) and Dougherty (70-49). JT Fulkrod scored 12 points in No. 5 Jefferson’s 60-49 win over East Hall while Keshawn Evans pulled down 18 points and 21 rebounds in No. 7 Druid Hills’ 50-42 win against Stephenson. No. 9 North Oconee defeated East Hall 43-25 behind Jake Chandler’s 11 points. Bainbridge (17-7) departs from the poll with losses at Dougherty (58-42) and at Cairo (51-45). No. 10 Marist climbs back into the Top 10 after beating Mays 45-44 and edging Arabia Mountain 36-32.

In Class 3A, No. 2 Windsor Forest won at Groves 55-46. No. 5 Cross Creek got revenge with a 76-69 win at No. 6 Thomson as Jayden Pack scored 24 points.

No. 2 Pace Academy netted a 55-46 road win at Lovett in Region 6-2A, Cincinnati-signee Josh Reed posting 19 points and 13 rebounds to overcome Michigan-commit Christian Anderson’s 21 points. No. 9 Putnam County shocked No. 5 Westside-Augusta 64-63 after trailing 53-41 heading into the fourth. No. 7 Washington County outlasted Laney 80-74 in overtime thanks to Tra’Vonte Byrd’s 19 points and Quinton Knight’s 17. Chattooga (16-6) fell in overtime 60-52 at Model, dropping out of the Top 10. No. 10 Northeast-Macon resurfaces after a pair of wins over Bleckley County (64-56) and Lamar County (70-60). Mercer football-signee Travion Solomon is averaging 17 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 2.3 steals to lead the Raiders.

Another week, another slew of changes in Class A-Private due to the formidable Region 7. No. 4 Christian Heritage holds onto their spot, but did lose 71-65 in overtime at No. 6 Walker who jumps four places. No. 5 Darlington yo-yos back up three spots after splitting their season series with No. 7 North Cobb Christian with a resounding 81-56 win, Patrick Shelley hanging 23 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists while Braden Bell scored 17 to drop the Eagles four spots. Outside of the Region 7 vortex, No. 2 Galloway defeated No. 9 Providence Christian 59-54 behind Anthony Arrington’s 26 points, 8 rebounds and 5 steals. There is good news for the Storm however as VMI-signee Chance Thacker has returned to action. He scored a team-high 9 points in a low scoring 55-47 win against Holy Innocents’ earlier in the week. No. 3 King’s Ridge bounces up three spots after three teams ahead of them lose. The Tigers beat St. Francis 75-55. No. 8 Mt. Pisgah is down three spaces following an upset loss at Lakeview Academy 71-62. No. 10 First Presbyterian Day squeaked by Tattnall Square Academy 56-55 as Jay King finished with 23 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. King followed up his performance with 42 points in a blowout of Mt. de Sales 92-40.

The top seven in Class A-Public remains unchanged. Portal (13-7) and Mitchell County (17-6) fall out of the poll. The Panthers lost 73-70 to Bryan County then saw a lead slip away against Effingham County 50-48. Mitchell County had close wins at Terrell County (69-66) and at Randolph-Clay (44-39) before getting trounced by undefeated No. 4 Calhoun County 96-64. No. 9 Towns County is back in the rankings led by Collin Crowder, the multi-sport standout pouring in 25.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. No. 10 Chattahoochee County returns after a 1-1 week saw the Panthers lose for the second time to Macon County 52-37 but rebound with a 66-24 win at Marion County.

Two weeks remain before region tournaments tip-off, meaning the importance of seeding is at an all-time high. With playoff position on the line, tempers have flared as multiple bench clearing altercations have given the game a temporary black eye. Aside from the mayhem, two new number ones have emerged, peaking at the right time. Continue reading Week 12 GHSA Boys Basketball State Rankings
