Basketball playoffs: Games set as 2nd round gets underway on Friday

By AccessWDUN Staff

The second round of the Georgia High School Association's state tournament is set, and 15 area teams are still on the road to Macon. 

The second round has several top-10 teams colliding with each other for a trip to the quarterfinals next week with all but three of the 15 games being played on Friday. 

One of the more anticipated matchups of the second round has former Region 7-4A foes pitted against each other in Atlanta. Marist, who swept the Lady Falcons last season, will play host to The Branch on Friday for a trip to the quarterfinals. You can hear that game on WDUN AM 550/FM 102.9 beginning a little before 6 p.m. with the pregame.

In Class 3A, Dawson County boys welcome Salem to the Ford Phillips Center in what could be a toss-up battle on Friday. Both White County and Cherokee Bluff will be on the road against two top-five ranked teams. You can hear the Cherokee Bluff boys showdown on WDUN AM 550/FM 102.9 beginning a little before 6 p.m. with the pregame.

The Warriors travel to No. 1 Sandy Creek on Friday, while the Bears make the trip to Hartwell on Saturday to play No. 2-ranked Hart County. On the girls' side, the second-ranked Lumpkin County girls play host to No. 5-ranked Westminster on Friday as well. 

In Class 2A, the No. 4 Rabun County girls will travel to Columbia, and the Banks County boys will battle No. 1 Pace Academy on the road.
