ICYMI: Basketball: Holiday tourney time begins; Bluff-GAC battle in 7-3A

By Jeff Hart Sports Reporter

The holiday tournament season will officially start Thursday for many northeast Georgia tams, highligted by a pair of teams heading to Florida.

However, one huge region machup is on tap for Thursday as Cherokee Bluff heads to Norcross to take on Greater Atlanta Christian in a Region 7-3A battle. In the boys game, the Bears are undefeated in the early going in the region while GAC sits just one game back. In the girls matchup, a young Bluff girls team is still looking for its first region win of the season.
