Boys semifinal previews: Cobb makes semifinal history … Norcross, Miller Grove, Columbia, GAC chase history … #1 Buford vs. #2 Savannah … #1 Eagle’s Landing vs. #2 South Atlanta

Here is a look at the 14 semifinal boys games slated for this weekend. Look for a girls preview later today.

Class AAAAAA

*Hillgrove vs. Wheeler (5:30 p.m. Saturday, Georgia Tech): Both are Cobb County schools, Wheeler rich in basketball tradition, Hillgrove making its first semifinal appearance six years after opening its doors. Wheeler won state titles in 1994, 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2009 under coach Doug Lipscomb. The Wildcats are 21-8 this season, ranked No. 7, and winners of Region 5. Hillgrove, ranked fifth, is 26-4 overall, 13-2 since Jan. 11 with both losses to second-ranked North Cobb, which is in the other semifinal. (Cobb is the first county ever to put three teams in the boys semifinals in the highest classification.) Wheeler is full of blue-chip recruits, one of which, junior Elijay Staley, had 17 points and 11 rebounds in the 60-47 victory over sixth-ranked Peachtree Ridge in the quarters. Hillgrove is led by Kyle Castlin and B.J. Brown.

*North Cobb vs. Norcross (8:30 p.m. Saturday, Georgia Tech): These are the only schools that have reached the semifinals this academic year in football, boys basketball and girls basketball. Norcross can become the first school to win the football and boys basketball titles in the same academic year since Mitchell Baker (1989-90). North Cobb, ranked No. 2, beat No. 1 Tift County 68-63 in Tifton on Wednesday. The Warriors (6-4) are in the semis for the first time in the history of a school that dates to the 1950s. They made the quarterfinals last year and returned all five starters, though one has been lost to injury. Norcross (25-6) can become the first school in the highest class to win five state titles in eight seasons. The Blue Devils were champions in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2011. They’ve won 15 straight games, most of them comfortably, including a 56-35 rout of Berkmar in the quarters.

Class AAAAA

*Effingham County vs. Gainesville (5:30 p.m. Saturday, Kennesaw State): Effingham County (27-4), making its first-ever semifinal, has won its three playoff games by an average of 29 points. Its top player is 6-foot-7 junior JaKeenan Grant, who is averaging 17.9 points and 9.3 rebounds. Gainesville (22-9), which won titles in 1983 and 1984, last made the semis in 2009. The Red Elephants were unranked until winning the Region 8 tournament. They’ve won 14 straight games. Their top player is Shaquan Cantrell, a 6-4 guard averaging 19.3 points and seven rebounds. He has signed with North Georgia College.

*Northside-Columbus vs. Miller Grove (8:30 p.m. Saturday, Kennesaw State): Miller Grove is seeking its fifth straight state title. That’s never been done by a boys program in any classification. Miller Grove’s top player is Kyre Hamer (17.5 ppg, 9.6 rebounds). Northside, which opened in 2002, is playing in its first semifinal. The Patriots made the 2009 AAA quarterfinals. Northside’s top player is R.J. Sessions, averaging 18.2 points.

Class AAAA

*Statesboro vs. Columbia (5:30 p.m. Saturday, Fort Valley State): Third-ranked Columbia (27-3) is chasing its fourth straight state championship. The first three were won under Dr. Phil McCrary, who retired. The new coach is Kenny Sandifer. The constant has been point guard Tahj Shamsid-Deen, a four-year starter averaging 22.0  points. Columbia lost in the Region 6 final to South Atlanta but looked sharp in beating fourth-ranked Marist, also from Region 6, for the third straight time in the quarters, 50-41. Sixth-ranked Statesboro (28-3) has won 16 straight games and is playing in the semifinals for the first time since 2003 and looking for its first title since 1991. Statesboro’s coach for those teams, and this one, is Lee Hill, who has 751 career victories. In the quarters, Statesboro’s Zaquavian Smith made a layup at the buzzer to in the 60-58 victory at Rutland of Macon.

*Eagle’s Landing vs. South Atlanta (8:30 p.m. Saturday, Fort Valley State): This is a match of No. 1 (Eagle’s Landing, 25-5) vs. No. 2 (South Atlanta, 27-4). Eagle’s Landing is huge with 6-9 center Desmond Ringer (signed with South Carolina), 6-7 forward Chris Davenport (offer from Georgia Tech) and 6-6 guard Eric Wortham (committed to Middle Tennessee). The Golden Eagle’s have made the semifinals the past two seasons but never made a final. South Atlanta won a title in 2009 with Derrick Favors, now in the NBA, but is making its first semifinal appearance since then. The Hornets are pretty balanced with junior guards Derrick Byrd and Costa Anderson and senior forward Kertiss Baisden.

Class AAA

*Johnson-Savannah vs. North Hall (5:30 p.m. Saturday, Armstrong Atlantic State): Both of these teams were region runners-up to the other two semifinalists – Johnson to Savannah in Region 3, North Hall to Buford in Region 7. Johnson (23-6) is ranked No. 3. Its best player is 6-5 guard Tim Quarterman, who has signed with LSU. Johnson is playing in the semifinals for the first time since the Atom Smashers’ 1993 AAAA runner-up team. North Hall (28-3) is ranked No. 7. The Trojans have beaten No. 5 Morgan County and No. 10 St. Pius along the way. North Hall’s top player is 6-2 guard Ebo Smith, who has signed with North Georgia College.

*Savannah vs. Buford (5:30 p.m. Saturday, Armstrong Atlantic State): This game matches No. 1 (Buford) against No. 2 (Savannah). Buford (25-6) has never won a state title in basketball and can become the first school to win the football and boys basketball titles in the same academic year since Mitchell Baker (1989-90). Buford’s top player is A.J. Davis, a 6-6 forward who has signed with Tennessee. Savannah (27-3) was the 2012 runner-up in AAAAAA and is playing in the class that suits its enrollment for the first time in over a decade. Savannah won a state title in 1998. The team has four players averaging at least 10 points a game, but star center Chris Cokley, a 6-7 junior who averages 13.6 points and 7.6 rebounds, was knocked unconscious in a fall to the floor in the quarterfinal victory over Washington County game and did not return. His status is unknown for Saturday.

Class AA

*Bleckley County vs. Jordan (5:30 p.m. Friday, Georgia College): Seventh-ranked Bleckley County (27-3) has beaten third-ranked Westside-Augusta 61-60 and second-ranked Vidalia 69-67, both on the road, in thrillers to advance to the semifinals for the first time since 1985. Fifth-ranked Jordan (21-6) has made the semifinals four times since 2000 and won in 2007 under coach Gerald Turner.

*Laney vs. Greater Atlanta Christian (8:30 p.m. Friday, Georgia College): GAC (27-3) is ranked No. 1, and fourth-ranked Laney (22-8) is the defending champion. GAC is going for a third state title in four seasons under coach Eddie Martin. The 2012 season ended in a quarterfinal upset to Manchester. GAC avenged that defeat on Wedneday ith a 77-52 victory. GAC’s Isaiah Wilkins, a 6-6 junior, had 21 points, 20 rebounds and eight blocked shots. Laney lost four starters from its championship team but is revitalized by sophomores Jervon Walker and Jashawn Brooks, their leading scorers in the playoffs.

Class A public

*Portal vs. Wilcox County (5:30 p.m. Friday, Fort Valley State): Portal junior guard Stacey Morgan averages 23.2 points per game and made two lead-changing 3-pointers in the final three minutes of the 56-54 quarterfinal victory over Mitchell County. Portal is trying to make its first state final since 1957. Wilcox County forward Johnathan Howard, also a record-setting all-state wide receiver, is averaging 19.7 points per game. Wilcox was in the semis in 2009 and 2010 and last won in 1968.

*Jenkins County vs. Wilkinson County (8:30 p.m. Friday, Fort Valley State): Wilkinson County (27-2) has won five state titles (1999, 2000, 2002, 2007, 2011) under coach Aaron Geter. His current team is 25-2 and ranked No. 5 in the combined private-public Top 10. Jenkins County (17-8), the Region 3 runner-up to Portal, is in the semifinals for the first time after winning road games at Dooly County and Seminole County. Dooley was the last public school to beat Wilkinson (80-77 on Dec. 28).

Class A private

*Aquinas vs. St. Francis (5:30 p.m. Friday, Kennesaw State): Second-ranked Aquinas (23-6), playing in its first semifinal since 1966, has won 18 of its last 19, its only loss to Laney (62-60), a semifinalist in AA. Aquinas guard Ahmed Hill has offers from Georgia and Georgia Tech. Third-ranked St. Francis (22-8) has won 11 straight games with victories over two former No. 1-ranked teams (North Cobb Christian, W.D. Mohammed) and one defending state champion (Whitefield Academy). Playing in its first-ever final four, St. Francis is notably young as its top three scorers are sophomores Malik Beasley (14.2 ppg, 6-1 rebounds) and Kaiser Gates (13.7 ppg) and  freshman Kobi Jordan-Simmons (13.8 ppg).

*Greenforest Christian vs. Athens Christian (8:30 p.m. Friday, Kennesaw State): No. 1-ranked Greenforest Christian (25-4) has 6-9 post Tosin Mehinti, who has signed with UAB. Athens Christian’s top player is William “Turtle” Jackson, who snapped on North Cobb Christian in Wednesday’s 78-76 victory, scoring 36 points. Athens Christian is 24-4 and ranked No. 9. The game is a reunion for head coaches as Athens Christian’s Ron Link and Greenforest’s David Jones were together at Southwest Atlanta in 1969. Link was the girls coach. Jones was the boys coach. The two have more than 1,300 victories between them.

Too bad Milton didn’t get a chance to make it five state finals in a row, and three out of four state titles. Good luck to those who are still playing.

Tift Co. sold their soul, and for what? Give a kid parents jobs and housing, involve the school in a lengthy investigation, only to lose in the Elite 8? No Final Four, No State Championship game, but the Elite 8. I feel bad for the “TRUE “Tift Co. boys that never got a chance to play as all the transfers were brought in. Holland has recruited since his arrival at Tift Co. and has won how many state titles? He could not win a state title at Turner and he won’t win it at Tift. Maybe it aint the players he coaching, maybe its his coaching!!!!!!

Tift Co. – Bring in Transfers- Check

Win Region Title – Check

Beat GHSA Investigation – Check

Final Four – NOT

State Champions – NOT

Hey Brannen, when you go to Kansas, tell everyone how you won a region title in Ga.!!!!!!!

North Cobb was able to expose some flaws in the Tift Co. team. They had players that were lengthy and physical enough to contest Tift Co. North Cobb made Brannen Greene work for everything. If you can contain Jackson/Greene, the rest of the Tift players are average. Also, team chemistry came into play late in the game down the wire. Did anyone notice the disconnect at the end of the game between Greene and the rest of the team? The team was doing one thing, while he was doing “HIS ” thing!!

Gwinnett could have three teams the final four in 6AAAAAA, but since Dr. Sweargin(Who doesn’t know his head from his bottom) won’t change the state tournament so that the Region 1-4 teams would play against the Region5-8 teams. Football does and yet basketball doesn’t-makes a lot of sense Ralph. Same goes for girls basketball state tournament.

Not sure what you mean by re-seed, R6. Seems it would hurt the tougher conference if you re-seed because a No. 3 seed from a tough region would always be on the road.

This is the most exciting time of the year for high school basketball but the game has almost been ruined by all the recruiting that goes on. Most of the schools in the tourney don’t have a chance to compete with the well known programs that have a yearly influx of D-1 prospects or the private schools that are able to offer scholarships! The win at all costs attitude prevails but don’t expect the GHSA to make changes in the current system. A good place to start would be to separate the public and private schools as some states have done but our high school association doesn’t seem interested in the process being fair. Let the debate begin!

North Cobb has competed the last two years with out any recruiting or big time transfers. They have a core group of about 6 players that have played together since 6th grade plus a couple players that moved and came in their freshman and sophomore year and started out in JV. they were well coached and came up through the system. I was talking to one of the players yesterday and they talked about in 6th grade how they all said they were going to win state their senior year and now they’re in the Final Four. Just goes to show you how far hard work goes. Keep it up Warriors!!!!!

Earlier in the year I said that North Cobb had a good chance to be a Final Four team because they were very good the year before; had a senior group returning, and were well coached. Winning at Tift County was huge. Now they get a streaking and deep Norcross team that now has everybody on the same page. Wheeler is capable of playing lights out or lights off as demomstrated by their inexplicable two losses to a very mdiocre Roswell team. Or they can play how they played the last four games. P Ridge is like a broken record: lots of talent; some big wins; but never makes the Final Four. McMillan at Norcross is an excellent defensive minded coach. The guy who is the master though is Eddie Martin at GAC. He gets great looks for his scorers.

Eddie Martin is a good coach but we he has done better than most any coach is put himself in the right schools with the best chance to win. I remember when he was at brookwood and used to win region championships all the time until Link (now at Athens Christian) got to south Gwinnett. Eddie Martin lost to Link 13 straight times. He left and went to Norcross (the AAU capital of GA) and then went to the largest private school in AA. He’s a great coach but his team selection through his career has been more to do with his success

Not one single player off of Jordans Basketball team was a transfer or got recruited to play there. All those boys on the roster belong to that school. It is what makes me proud to be a Red Jacket fan. We don’t go out and get players like GAC and other teams do. If we did, we would probably win the State championship year after year. Coach Turner gets the most out of what he has and has a state championship in 2007 and his fourth final four appearance since 2000. The philosophy at Jordan is to run you until you can’t move anymore.

@Kevin; plese give the parents some credit; they read the paper; they research schools; they look at their local school, and they want to play for the best. I agree that it is commendable what schools like Jordan accomplish. But let me ask you this honest question. If a great player moved to Jordan to play, would you turn him away and suggest Spencer or Manchester?

Once and for all can we stop the “they recruit” stuff. It is what it is. Play with the cards you are dealt with. Tift was accused of recruiting and lost. Get your team ready and play basketball. By now we should see that “recruiting” is permissable by GHSA (blind eyes turned) as long as you cya. I can predict that when a team loses, the losing team will get on the blog and say “the other team recruited”. Most of these kids play AAU with aspirations to play in college. Guess what, they will be playing against players that were, you guessed it, recruited. I am not condoning it, I am saying, it isn’t going anywhere.

Coach jay told me before the season started you don’t need a big man to win the state all you need is 2 good guards. I didn’t believe him but now i see what he is talking bout. Especially if both of your guards are good that’s all you need.

Keep doing your thing and I look forward to Saturday at GT and I am making plans for the Championship road trip to Macon.

@ Hubert Green … If a player moved to Jordan’s district and wanted to play then yeah I would def consider. Knowing coach Turner, he would not want anyone coming to play that lived across town or in another zip code. I understand your point though and yes it would be tough to turn away a great player. What’s crazy is Northside Columbus has many of the players that should be at Jordan and they are in the final four in 5A. (Although Miller Grove will probably destroy them)

The debate regarding the state of high school basketball has been interesting. Many admit the system is broken but suggest we do the best we can and stop complaining. Well, that’s what teams have done for years but I bet that opinion would change if their team wasn’t winning!

I don’t have a dog in the fight as the old saying goes but am a fan of high school basketball. I hope we can come up with more ideas and suggestions to improve the game we are all love before it’s too late. What do you think basketball fans?

Hey Kevin!! Please explain to me and the readers on here how any team in the finals is “mediocre”? Bleckley at 28-3 has beaten Thomasville, Westside Augusta on the road, Vidalia on the road and now Jordan who seemed to have all but there ticket stamped for the Finals at the Coliseum. Jordan jumped out big early but the truth is Bleckley came back quick and lead Jordan by double digits for most of the game and early on they could not handle BC’s big man in the paint. To Jordan’s credit, they did fight but Bleckley kept pulling away again. Something can be said for mediocre when the tournament starts but when you get to the final 4 and the finals history, records and whatever can be thrown out the window. Belckley’s resume at this point should be respected and i am sure GAC will acknowledge this. GO ROYALS!!!!!

I hate to tell everyone but Jordan done the hole 2a bracket a favor by beating Dade co..,…….they went into Jordan and played furious in the first half burning the nets up and then they had the worst half they have had in five years and still managed to score 80 points and only hit 3 threes in sec half they matched up with Jordan very well and had much better shooters than Jordan they had a bad night this is a team that beat Howard in Chattanooga this season ( a team that would beat GAC by 12) Dade county scores in the 100s plenty of times Jordan had one decent scorer if that game wud have been at dade Jordan wud not have won……..them Dade boys are our rivals but they are the best overall team in aa and they had two players score over 55 this season a cpl of times they are on the rise and teams like GAC that go out and get Dominique Wilkins son and players like that should not be wallowed to play in public school division period!

Country Boy…The Bottom line is Jordan is a better team than Bleckley County. Jordan had a terrible shooting night. Jordan beats that team 8 out of 10 times. It is amazing to me that Jordan even managed to have a chance to win at the end. We had plenty of open looks, what usually falls didnt yesterday. I agree with calhoun above some what. Dade county was a good team, prob better than Bleckley. But Jordan was still better than Dade county and Jordan def had more than one player. At the end of the day GACs best chance to lose was the match up with Jordans hot shooting and being able to run them. Now its a half court game with GAC and Bleckley and that bolds very well for GAC. They have answers for that Bleckley big inside. GAC by atleast 20. Hats off to bleckley though, they found a way to get there.

The high school basketball season is almost over but following are a couple of ideas that may bring some sanity back to the sport. Either one would be a step in the right direction.

1- Separate the public and private schools in all classes as Class A schools have done

2- Move the private schools to 5A and 6A (Class A schools would not be affected). This would allow the larger schools that receive a yearly influx of players and private schools that are able to offer scholarships to complete against each other.

Maybe there are other ideas and suggestions out there that may help. If so, let’s hear them but the following have already been submitted:

1- Stop Whining

2-Stop Complaining

3- Get over it

What about it high school basketball fans?

It was almost perfect the way things played out. Wheeler lost (The worst of all in regards to recruiting)……Avery Patterson-who by the way was enrolled at Milton as late as October of this year. Tift Co lost…….B. Greene’s mom gets job at Tift Co. Westlake lost ….K.Johnson is 20 years old. Shiloh lost…..their whole team. But Norcross won tonight. Oh well. At least Norcross doesn’t call others team’s players………Speaking of calling other people’s players…..How did Buford do? Oh they lost. For someone who thinks and speaks as if he sits among Dean Smith and John Wooden, he doesn’t have much to show……Well, recruiting season starts next week for Allen. He has to replace all five seniors. Rest assured he will and the GHSA will sit back and look the other way. Thanks Ralph.

Big Cat, I hear you and I wish there were an easy answer because the usual suspects will continue to do what they do. The only thing I could suggest is to basically “legalize” free movement regardless of address to give all schools an equal chance to get “move ins” like many of the perennial powers do. This is not only prevalent in Private schools but many of the public powers have large of influxes of players each year. I know earlier I basically said, to get over it. This is due to the fact that GHSA either can’t or won’t crack down.So they should either stop playing around and just allow any student to go anywhere or impose a 1 year sit out rule for transfers.
