|Keshun Sherrill is a leader in almost|
every imaginable Peach Belt statistic.
The win secures GRU's position as the Peach Belt East Division's #1 seed. This is important for two reasons. The higher seed positions the Jags opposite the West Division's #4 seed (Young Harris), rather than the #3 seed, in Saturday's Peach Belt conference tournament. But more important is that if GRU wins its quarterfinal game (Saturday at Christenberry Fieldhouse), coach Metress's squad will host the conference semifinals and championship game the following Friday and Saturday.
I have thought a lot lately about the game I think was the area's most exciting of the season, the Jags' 97-88 overtime win at Lander Jauary 10th. The Jags entered that contest 2-3 in Peach Belt play and looked vulnerable. Fourteen games later, GRU has stumbled only once. And the team seems to be playing better than ever at the moment. Here's to (hopefully) three more Jags games at Christenberry. I can say that because I'm a fan. I'll trust the best coach I know, Dip Metress, to keep the guys' minds focused on the only basketball thing that truly matters right now: Saturday's game. I hope I'll see you there.
