ROBERTA, GA -- Driving into the heart of Crawford County, the community was shutdown. In a perfect cliché, businesses were closed down and traffic was non-existent. The city wasn't sleeping just after the sun was hidden away by an evening fog.

Not at all. It was game night at Crawford County. More importantly, it was time for the Flint River Rivalry at Taylor County came to town. One of middle Georgia's best basketball games of the year was taking place on Tuesday night and no one in Robert, Georgia (population 1,000) was going to miss it.

National Signing Day is Wednesday and thousands of high school football seniors will put a pen to a paper and contractually connect themselves to a college or university of their choice. Many basketball coaches were wondering if two-sport prospect Cameron Johnson of Athens (Ga.) Clarke Central would be one of them.

We've had some serious highlights this year in Georgia high school hoops. These dunks are our favorites (so far) as we continue the march to Macon.

Phil Cofer had this amazing dunk against Hammond (S.C.) over the weekend.

Jaylen Brown threw this bad boy down against Wenonah at the Hilton Invitational.

NORCROSS, GA - The Hilton Invitational is growing into being the destination event just before the end. Every year, the one-day showcase has had matchups that left people on the edge of their seats on Saturday.

This was no different as players, teams and basketball fans left host Norcross High impressed with the games. There were some game winners at the buzzer, individual performances and highlights that had people talking about what they just happen to see.

Tookie Brown took an unofficial visit to Mississippi State in the early fall and ever since his September trip to Starkville, the junior from Morgan County (Ga.) High School has been thinking about the SEC program. On Sunday, the thoughts came to an end and the 5-foot-10 scorer committed to the Bulldogs.

SAVANNAH, GA - The recipe for Jenkins was quite simple against Liberty County - play physical and make perimeter shots. That's exactly what the Warriors did in a body-bruising region game on Saturday night as Jenkins won 49-38.

Collins Hill guard Devin Mitchell calmly dribbled to the three point line and pulled up from the left wing to drill a game-winning three-pointer to lift his Eagles past rival Peachtree Ridge on Saturday night 46-45.

After missing a pair of free throws, Mitchell's three-point shot won the game and insansity spilled onto the court shortly there after. Relive the buzzer beater:

VIDALIA, GA -- On Senior Night, the Vidalia Indians relied on the core of the team to show the standing-room only crowd a little more of the same. Eight players on the Class AA power played their final regular season home game of their careers and went out with a bang, putting region foe McIntosh County Academy away by a score of 74-52 on Friday night.

When you look at Georgia's loaded 2016 class, there are a lot of scorers. There are a lot of wings. And there are a lot of versatile players in the deep group. Then there is Jailyn Ingram of Morgan County. The 6-foot-6 wing is one of the more unique guys in his classification and he's been on the upward tract all season and emerging as one of the more promising prospects in the Southeast.

Morgan County came to the Atlanta area after the Christmas break and played very well in the Nike/BMASP Holiday tournament. Paced by junior guard Tookie Brown, the Bulldogs are one of the leaders in Class AAA in Georgia high school hoops.

Whitefield Academy understands there are few things a team can control on the basketball court. Effort and playing hard are two one can achieve.

The Wolfpack rebounded in bunches and created multiple scoring second chance opportunities beating 71-63 St. Francis Tuesday night.

D'Marcus Simonds of Buford High School is one of the many talented wing players in Georgia's loaded 2016 class.

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.
