The Score 44 is a fluid list that aims to honor the best forty-four seniors in Georgia high school basketball on a week-to-week basis. These players are some of the most highly-recruited players in the state as well as some of the best players that may not get to play at the next level. The list will weigh high school performances but also look project how they will do at the next level. Unlike the football list, however, the basketball list is divided into boys and girls. Each week we will honor 22 boys and 22 girls, all seniors.

For the second straight year, a football player with a scholarship to an SEC program has earned his way onto the basketball Score 44. After Norcross’ Jason Croom made the list last year, Dutchtown’s Donovahn Jones moved onto the list this week. The future Missouri Tiger has averaged 17 points this season and notched 20 in a win over Locust Grove Tuesday. Jones, who projects to play wide receiver at Missouri, was named to the Score 44 football team this season and participated in last Saturday’s Florida vs. Georgia All-Star Football game. As for the girls list, Rome’s Astri Dupree has earned her way onto the list after carrying the Rome team to seven wins so far this season. Dupree had 17 points and 13 rebounds in a loss to Paulding County earlier this week to follow up another 17-point outing against Model and 18 points against Allatoona. Dupree has gone for more than 20 several times as she is the main scoring option for the Wolves and opponents are keying in on her to try and slow her down.
