We’ll let the photo speak first for Norcross High’s 59-55 upset over Milton in the Class AAAAA state championship. (You’ll have your chance below)
I certainly didn’t see that coming. Did you?
Even with the loss, Milton had perhaps the most talent-loaded roster the state of Georgia has ever seen. When your sixth man has committed to Auburn, you’re pretty good.
Milton was pretty darn good this season, representing the state very well against out-of-state competition. It’s the last couple of minutes of the state championship that will be replayed forever in the minds of Milton supporters.
What happened to the No. 4-ranked team by USA Today?
Maybe Norcross simply had a better night?
You have to give Norcross High a lot of credit. Even with a disastrous start to the regular season, Norcross was always considered the only team with enough manpower to threaten Milton. They got it together just in time for the playoffs.
My state championship MVP: Norcross High’s Chris Bolden. Four straight free throws in the final 29 seconds for the margin of victory. He’s a junior committed to Miami.
Now it’s YOUR turn. What are your thoughts on the game?
Where does this rank among other upsets in the state championship game of Georgia high school basketball? Is Milton 2011 the best team to not win a state championship?
What went wrong? What went right? What did you see? What didn’t you see? What did you want to see? How do you feel about it?
We want to hear what you have to say about this thriller.
This game was a lot of fun to watch. Let’s talk. Thanks to both Norcross and Milton for a great season and great game.
