Now that the seniors from the 2012 class have played their final games, it is time to start looking at the next crop of great hoops players in Georgia. Many of the juniors on this list played big roles for their teams this year, and one of the players came up big in a state championship game and will enter her senior season with a ring. High school basketball always sees a lot of movement with players switching schools each year, but for now, here are 24 juniors to keep an eye on for next year who could make the first Score 44 list next November. I will try to balance college potential with current and projected high school production. Just as with the Score 44, I will split the list in half. In this case, that means 12 boys and 12 girls. Next November, the 44 will once again be broken into 22 girls and 22 boys. The players are not ranked, instead listed in alphabetical order.
