Crucial region games remain for local high school basketball teams
The 2017-2018 high school basketball regular season schedule has reached the home stretch with local GHSA regions moving into post-season, region tournaments the week of February 5. That leaves less than three weeks for area regions to conclude their regular season slates.
Weather cancellations have made scheduling difficult for teams across the state, but games played over the upcoming stretch will go a long way in determining seeding for the all-important region tournaments. The top four teams from each region tournament advance to the state playoffs that begin at higher-seeded school sites on February 16-17.
Here is a quick glance at games remaining for each of our local schools: Adairsville has road region games remaining at Bremen, at Calhoun, and at Sonoraville. The Tigers and Lady Tigers will also host region opponents Haralson County and Coahulla Creek before the close of the regular season slate. Adairsville's closing stretch in the regular season also includes a non-region game at Coosa. Over the final eighteen days of the regular season, Cartersville has region road games to play at Cedartown, at Sandy Creek, at Chapel Hill, and at Troup. The Hurricanes and Lady Canes have region home games remaining with Central-Carroll, LaGrange, and Troup plus a contest at non-region Woodland set for Saturday, February 3.
Woodland's schedule during the closing stretch includes road games at Villa Rica, at Paulding County, at Rome, at East Paulding, and at Hiram. The Lady Cats and Wildcats have region home games left with Paulding County and Cass plus a pair of non-league home games against Southeast Whitfield and Cartersville.
The remainder of the Cass regular season schedule includes region road games at Hiram, at Woodland, and at Kell, with region home games remaining against Hiram, Kell, and Carrollton. The Lady Colonels and Colonels play their final non-region home game against Rockmart this Saturday.
