How well do you know your high school basketball?
If you’re feeling good about your knowledge, then how about picking one game that will be an upset in the second round of the state basketball playoffs, which tip off on Tuesday.
The first round was full of them, most notably the Parkview girls. The No. 2 team in Class AAAAA saw its perfect season end at home in a shocker to Marietta.
This wasn’t an upset but … the Rockdale boys, ranked No. 1 in Class AAAA, defeated Fayette County 75-72 in overtime. I’m still trying to figure out that one. Rockdale never led in regulation, and trailed by five points with less than 26 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Do you believe in miracles?
Anyways, what’s your upset prediction — boys or girls — in the second round? State your case below.
