I wanted to use this opportunity to try and share with you my love for college basketball. I’ve been told that when I write about anything other than football people stop reading, but hear me out. I’ve mentioned some of this before, but when I was growing up in Henderson, North Carolina, I fell in love with basketball. I was deep in ACC country and, as you well know, until recently they knew little about college football. The only football I saw was a weekly game of the Washington Redskins on TV sponsored by Amoco.
The GHC men’s basketball team survived a hot shooting first half from its Chattahoochee Tech to get a 105-85 conference win Wednesday night at home. The game was tied seven times in the second half, and GHC went on a 15-3 run to close out the game and get the home win. Kyvon Davenport paced the Chargers with 24 points, 13 rebounds and five blocks
There was plenty to celebrate Friday night in Armuchee. The Lady Indians not only disposed of their state playoff first round opponent with ease, but one of its best players reached a career milestone at home.
The Lady Hawks stayed perfect at Alto Park on the season, sweeping Miles College in an in-region double header Thursday afternoon. Shorter took the first game 8-1, before winning the second game 9-1 in five innings.
