Tuesday's AugBball Updates: Laney and Aiken win on the Road at Butler and North Augusta; Top Ranked Girls teams Continue their Dominance; and much more to come

Donald Little scored 25 points in Laney's 67-64 overtime win over region leader Butler. 

#4 Laney 67, #5 Butler 64 (Overtime)
Class AA, Region 4

Laney's junior point guard Donald Henley, a veteran of local rivalries and important league games after playing a major role in the Wildcats' success since early in his freshman season, led all scorers with 25 points as Laney defeated Butler, at Butler, to move to within one game of the region leading Bulldogs. Much more reporting and some more video clips are to come. But this is what we've shared so far:

#9 Aiken 52, #7 North Augusta 49
South Carolina Class AAAA, Region 4

The Hornets improved to 4-0 in region play behind a stingy team defensive effort, including particularly impressive defensive work by Devon Young, and a few key plays late by 6'5" sophomore Nazae Baltimore. I'll have a full report soon from the AugBball Game of the Night, which was highly entertaining:

Georgia and South Carolina's Best Girls Teams Continued their Uninterrupted Dominance

I will post more complete reports soon from the wins by Georgia's class AA #1 team, Laney, and South Carolina's class AAAA's top team, North Augusta. But for now, I'll say that both teams won their 19th straight games Tuesday!

And here I will share what I posted after watching Laney look as dominant as any team I can remember in their first four minutes against Butler:

And while Aiken put up a fight, the Lady Yellow Jackets of North Augusta improved to 19-0 with a win as well:

So stay tuned for the full reports from Tuesday's games at North Augusta and Butler and Augusta Prep. And here is the full list, via WRDW's Kevin Faigle, of high school scores from Tuesday, including some more thoughts from me.*

*To which I would add the fact that class AAAAAA #8 Lakeside's boys, and class A #5 Aquinas remained undefeated in region play, as did class AAAA #2 Cross Creek's girls and class AAAAAA #5 Grovetown.
