Every morning, starting Wednesday and ending Sunday, I will release an episode of "Championship Week," which will chronicle all the region tournament action I can see!
While driving to the region 3A tournament, and recording the introduction to the "Championship Week" episode above, I thought of the unfortunate fact that either Josey or Glenn Hills would play its last game today. Glenn Hills has had a difficult path to the post season, playing virtually the entire region schedule without its best all around player, Zi Cook. Seniors Aaron Williamson, Maurice O'Bannon, and Cook have been part of the core group that has made Glenn Hills one of our area's best team the past several years. But if any team deserves to get past today's quarterfinal round, advance to the state playoffs, and play at least three more games, it's Josey. The team's only shortfalls this season have come to region and area powers Laney, Butler, and Washington County. The Eagles were a possession or two away from winning four of the six games against those teams. And what basketball fan would like to know Josey's Darius Williams has played his last high school game? Not me.
