More from the first round

Catching up on other games from Friday night, here is what I know...

The biggest surprise of the night state wide, in my opinion, was Savannah Johnson losing in double overtime to Lowndes, who went 12 of 14 in the second overtime to win 68-63. Down the road, Savannah High rolled through Tift County 68-46. Click HERE or HERE for a Savannah scoreboard.

Glenn Hills says the played with a little swagger. That was enough to push the top team in Augusta over Cairo. Now Glenn Hills moves on to play Jordan, in a terrific AAA match-up. Jordan held off Perry to advance.

Josey, Laney, Richmond Academy and Swainsboro all move on. Bainbridge beat Evans. Click HERE for the Augusta area box scores.

Shaw takes advantage in overtime to upset Northeast Macon. Looking for a sleeper in AA? Try Rutland's Jonathan Brooks. His 26 points and 17 rebounds helped his team beat Savannah Christian. No surprise here, Wilkinson County looks strong in the Class A bracket. Click HERE for the Macon area box scores.

For the second straight year, Central Macon beat Columbus Northside. Sounds like this one will take a while to overcome for the kids in Columbus.

Dougherty lost on a last second shot. Major upset!

Want a second round upset? Pebblebrook certainly has a chance to do that against Columbia on Tuesday. The Mableton school won big over NW Whitefield. When South Forsyth gets hot from the perimeter, they are tough, tough, tough. Campbell found that out. More on the Dacula-Tucker game. Watch out for Dacula!
