Georgia Boys Basketball Championships: Schedules, Brackets For High School Tourneys

Milton and Columbia are a couple of the top teams to watch in this week's Georgia High School State Championships, being played in Macon and in Gwinnett. Champions will be crowned in the 4A and 5A divisions on Friday in Gwinnett with the 1A, 2A, and 3A championships taking place on Saturday in Macon.

Milton High School is seeking its second consecutive 5A State Championship and possesses a star-studded lineup led by Georgia Tech recruit Julian Royal. Milton appears to be on a collision course with Norcross in the finals. Miller Grove is the favorite but not by much as each team is capable of capturing the championship.

Defending 3A champion Columbia is the heavy favorite to repeat this season while it looks like Buford and GAC look to make in an all Region 3 final in the 2A bracket.

Georgia fans can catch a glimpse of incoming McDonald's All-American Kentavious Caldwell-Pope as he leads Greenville High into the 1A semifinals against Wilkinson County. Greenville upset Wilcox County in the quarterfinals in a match-up of two University of Georgia recruits Caldwell-Pope and Nick Marshall in a head to head battle. Caldwell-Pope scored 40 points in the game. Greenville's opponent in the semis, Wilkinson County is the only boys team in the state that is still undefeated. However, Whitefield Academy could be the favorite in the 1A bracket.
