Region 5-AA Basketball Tournament Update: Lowest Boys Seed Advances to State Playoffs

Despite coming into the tournament as the lowest seed with no region wins, the #8 seeded Spencer Greenwave stunned the #5 seeded Kendrick in three overtimes 97-96 on Monday.

They then knocked off the #4 seeded Carver Tigers 70-65 on Tuesday to land an improbable spot in the GHSA state playoffs. They will face the #1  seed Jordan Red Jackets tomorrow night at Heard High School.

The next two days will be packed with exciting games including the Lady Braves who will be in action tomorrow night vs. Kendrick. All other tourney games have been won by the higher seed.
