As the high school basketball regular season marches toward the playoffs, games across the area heat up.
With that, the AccessWDUN sports staff put together another round of picks this week. We take an in-depth look at several big region showdowns this week.
-- Can North Hall avenge its early season losses at Chestatee?
-- Will Gainesville come home with the sweep at Shiloh in Snellville?
-- Can the Lumpkin County girls knock off Wesleyan at home?
-- Both Jefferson and Flowery Branch boys and girls teams need a win. Will it be a dogfight at The Branch?
-- The Flowery Branch boys' loss to Winder-Barrow has them in fourth place, but a win on Friday against Heritage-Conyers in Flowery Branch will have them back near the top of the Region 8-5A standings.
To watch, press play above.
