Augusta 75, Francis Marion 71

Augusta (18-6, 11-5) shares the Peach Belt East lead with Pembroke, which beat Aiken in overtime Monday. The Jags host Armstrong State Saturday at 3:30.

Sherrill was scorching hot from the start:

Brooks made key plays to keep the Jags in a good position to close the first half:

Francis Marion's Detrek Browning (17 points) didn't have enough to stop Sherrill and company. Augusta's Brooks added 10 points in the win:

Aquinas 66, Twiggs County 44
Class A, Region 7 tournament

Aquinas, the state's #3 class A team which has won 23 of 24 games this season by an average margin of nearly 30 points, also has an elite student section! (Maybe I spoke too soon when I called Westminster's the best in town!)

Thanks to Charlesmacdaddy McNeil for shining a light on what may be the area's best team and its phenomenal fans!

Josey 59, Glenn Hills 51
Class AA, Region 4

Josey will face Butler Friday at Laney in the semifinals. The other semifinal matchup will feature Laney and Westside.
