The excitement of the GHSA State Playoffs is picking up with region tournaments deciding the seeding of all qualifying team. That excitement was on full display at Maynard Jackson as the host site for the 6-AAAAA Tournament.

The weather could not stop me from getting to a semi-final matchup between #1 Riverwood and #4 Grady which was sure to be a game that went down to the wire. In the end, Riverwood came away with the win just escaping a buzzer-beater 3-point shot by Destiny Battle that would have sent it into overtime. The final score of 62-59 showed just how evenly matched the teams are and the competitiveness of the region. It was the third time this season that Riverwood won between the two teams all decided by four or fewer points including an overtime thriller earlier in the year.

This was the first time I have seen these two teams compete and both have prospects that are sure to play at the next level. Here are my top seven players from the game.
