The GROVE Awaits Title

Miller Grove's boys basketball team hopes to join Westover of Albany and Lanier of Macon as the only Georgia high school basketball teams to win four straight titles.
The Wolverines led by 6-9 F/C Tony Parker are on the cusp of making "hoops history" when they face Southwest DeKalb for the boys 4A state title Friday night in the Arena at Gwinnett
Center. Parker who has reportedly narrowed his college choices to Kansas, UCLA, Duke, Ohio State with Georgia being a possible darkhouse since Parker's best buddy forward Brandon Morris will be
going to Athens talks about his drive for four championships when he and Miller Grove head coach Sharman White exclusively joined us on the GPB Sports Blog after Miller Grove's 70-49 win over Jonesboro. Southwest DeKalb features
6-9 C/F William "Shaq" Goodwin, who headed to Memphis. Goodwin's Panthers will play for their first state title ever. Friday's matchup between Goodwin and Parker is the first GHSA BIG man matchup in about decade since Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy's Dwight Howard battled fellow 7-footer and Landmark Christian's Randolph Morris. Howard would go directly to the NBA from high school, and Morris would enroll at the University of Kentucky. The Miller Grove/SWD matchup highlights championship weekend in both Duluth and Macon. You can watch all the games as part of our exclusive coverage of championship weekend on GPB. They will also be streamed live at GPB.org. Here is the link: www.gpb.org/sports
