Basketball: Standings for Jan. 9; most area teams back in action after weekend cancelations

By Jeff Hart Sports Reporter

Just as teams were ready to jump into the meat of their region schedules and begin the real quests for playoff spots, Mother Nature stepped in last weekend to throw the schedules into chaos.

What we do know is that Region 8-AAAAAA, which has yet to play a single region contest, will finally get under way on Tuesday. The Class AAAAAA No. 1-ranked Gainesville boys will put their ranking on the line against a much-improved Lanier squad, and the game can be heard on WGGA 1240 AM beginning at 5:50 p.m. with the pregame show and the girls contest.

Both Buford teams are ranked No. 1 in Class AAAAA and will play host to Johnson while the No. 2 Flowery Branch girls will take on Walnut Grove at home.

Both Lakeview Academy teams are still ranked in the top five in Class A Private and will play host to Commerce.

Below are the standings for all northeast Georgia regions:
