When looking for teams to watch this basketball season in Class AA, an obvious choice is the Greater Atlanta Christian Spartans. They are the defending national champions hailing from Region 6, having defeated Bleckley County last year, 69-52, in the finals. The win capped a 29-3 season for the Spartans. In a broader context, it was their third state title in four seasons.
Having only lost two seniors from last season’s roster and with almost all significant contributors returning (Troy Morrison, Cam Boyd, Isaiah Wilkins and Justin Lewis, to name a few), the Spartans are a natural choice to win it all again this year. Working in their favor is incredible depth that helped them wear teams down during last year’s title run.
They’ve already played two games this season and have won both. They defeated A’s King Ridge Christian, 83-67, and made easy work of Eagles Landing – last season’s AAAA state champ – winning 75-41.
Here are two other AA teams to look for this season:
