Basketball Championship Week at HCMS

(Franklin, GA) — Heard County Middle School will play host this week to the 2019-2020 West Georgia Small Middle School Basketball Championships.

The tournament will get started with play-in games today followed by the girls semifinals tomorrow and the boys semifinals on Wednesday.

The Championship games will take place Friday beginning with the girls title game at 5:00 PM followed up by the boys title game at 6:30 PM.

The HCMS Lady Braves earned the No. 2 seed in the tourney and will host No. 3 Bowdon at 5:00 PM on Tuesday. The game will likely be a close battle based on the outcomes of the first two meetings this season.

The Lady Braves defeated Bowdon 37-36 at home on December 16, but the Middle Red Devillettes returned the favor just this past week with a 48-43 win over the Lady Braves in Bowdon. The HCMS girls fought back from a 39-23 deficit at the end of the third quarter to make the game close.

On the boys side of the brackets, top-seeded HCMS will host the Monday play-in game winner (Temple or Villa Rica) Wednesday at 6:30 PM.

The juggernaut HCMS Braves were undefeated in small school league play this season.
