Let's get started!

Hey, basketball fans. Josh Bagriansky here to take you the rest of the way. We have a couple of great games coming up here from Gwinnett Arena. We’ll start with the girls class AAAAA title with Redan taking on Marietta. Then comes an intriguing matchup for the nightcap with star-studded Wheeler taking on a young and talented Milton squad.

But first, I’d like to say a bit about Miller Grove, who just took down Tucker to take home their first basketball state title for the school.

Those kids have been through a tumultuous season after losing head coach Sharman White before the season, as he was suspended for some issues he had earlier in his career while coaching at Carver. That couldn’t have been easy for the Wolverines, none of whom had played for anyone but White at Miller Grove. But they showed some real character by coming together and playing pretty darn good basketball from day one. Congrats to those guys on conquering the obstacles and being crowned as state champions, they deserve it.
