Region 7-AAAAAA is heavy at the top once again thanks in large part to North Gwinnett and Norcross. The teams have split the series this year and sit atop the region standings going into the home stretch. So, we ask you...which team is the best in the region?

MACON, GA -- Rutland point guard Jaylon Tyson patiently watched the clock from the top of the key and then saw the moment to attack the rim. With less than five seconds on the clock in a tie game, the junior floor general drew three Central defenders, leaving teammate Dallas Smith wide open for the game-winning lay-up with 2.6 seconds left to play.

ALPHARETTA, GA - The term sleeper rarely lives up to the billing in today's age of instant information. So when a guy like Devontae Cacok comes around and scores 26 points and grabs 16 rebounds in a rivalry game, it is easy to get excited.

LAWRENCEVILLE, GA - Mitchell and Mitchell has a nice ring to it if it was a law firm. The combination on Collins Hill boy’s basketball team has a much tighter relationship.

Trailing by a basket with 25 seconds to play, Devin Mitchell had the ball at the top of the key. Normally, the Alabama signee is the gearing up to take the last shot. He drove to the basket and everyone on Peachtree Ridge reacted leaving his younger brother open in the corner.

Every road team needs to have the heart of a thief.

Miller Grove head coach Sherman White preached this message for any road game. It was a message hammered home this week as it travelled to county and 6B-AAAAA foe.

MACON, GA -- Stratford Academy sophomore guard Quintez Cephus started the game against Southland Academy on Tuesday night with a pair of good-looking pull-up three-pointers and a lay-up in the first minute and a half of the game.

NORCROSS, GA - Norcross boys basketball coach Jesse McMillian was looking for a source of energy in its Region 7-AAAAAA matchup against North Gwinnett.

He challenged his team to bring it from the opening-tip and the Blue Devils responded. Norcross pressured, hustled and made key plays at just the right time before beating the Bulldogs 59-48 on Tuesday.

Welcome to Super Tuesday. The region play schedule has produced a number of must-see games on Tuesday, Jan. 14 around the state of Georgia. Instead of featuring the five best games to watch this week, we decided to deconstruct the schedule even deeper and lay out the match-ups you'll want to pay attention to on Tuesday.

We are at a good midway point in the 2013-2014 high school hoops season and our HoopSeen.com team has been to over 100 games already this year all over the great state of Georgia.

With that, there was a need to update the class of 2014 rankings for the state of Georgia. We've added four new players and shuffled the deck in the middle of the listing.

ATLANTA, GA – Down by one, Westlake senior Anthony Banks toed the free throw line with 9.6 seconds left to play in back-and-forth game with region foe Douglas County and did something few could do in this match-up – knock down both shots.

The two made free throws put Westlake up 74-73 and proved to be the game-winning scores as Douglas County guard Corey Tillery missed as point blank layup at the buzzer.

Region play is now in full force in Georgia high school hoops and some of the top teams in some of the top regions go head-to-head. Here are the five games we think you need to see this week around the Peach State.

BAINBRIDGE, GA -- Looking back over the last decade in Georgia high school hoops, the best of the best always got better because of head-to-head match-ups against comparable talent.

Dwight Howard had Randolph Morris. JJ Hickson had Gani Lawal. Al-Farouq Aminu had Trey Thompkins. Lorenzo Brown had Ryan Harrow. The list is long in Georgia and the debates are good for barbershops and barbecue joints.  

On Friday night, Bainbridge's Tyree Crump locked horns with Seminole County's Jordan Harris. The two shooting guards are the best South Georgia has to offer right now in the class of 2016. Harris had a lot of help from his friends as Seminole County won 65-58 to improve to 7-1 on the year.

BAINBRIDGE, GA -- For 17 years Seminole County and Bainbridge High Schools didn't play each other on the basketball court despite being 30 minutes away from each other. In these parts, that's as close of a regional game that you'll find in the season.

With 2013 in the books, our HoopSeen.com staff looks back at the best of the year from Suwanee Sports Academy.

LILBURN, GA -- It is no secret that Berkmar basketball has the players in place to do some damage in 2014. On the team's final game in 2013, all of the pieces showed why the Patriots could be a team that marches to Macon.

Paced by the 1-2 punch of seniors Tim Rowe and Kiair Crouch, Berkmar held off a second-half surge from Morgan County to hang on for a 61-53 win over Morgan County to claim the Nike BMASP Holiday Hoops Classic on Monday night.

TUCKER, GA -- The Tucker Tigers rode a big second half against Columbia to claim the 2013 Chick-Fil-A Invitational on Monday night. Thanks to a big second half from senior Jon Dunmeyer and balanced team defense, the host team put away an undefeated Columbia team 74-59 to claim the championship.

ACWORTH, GA – It was an all Cobb County day on Saturday at the Lake City Classic at Allatoona High School. Seniors led the charge in the three games we were at. Here’s a quick rundown of the action.

TUCKER, GA – We spent the day at the Chick-Fil-A Invitational Holiday Classic on Thursday and saw a lot of basketball on the first day of action after Christmas. Here’s a quick snapshot of the action in Dekalb County.
