The collective basketball program at McEachern High School is in a great spot to say the least as both the varsity boys and girl programs will have something to say about who wins the GHSA 7A title this season. Catch both teams live on SUVtv this Saturday.
With a handful of championships, the McEachern Lady Indiana have served as the gold standard for girls basketball in Georgia. In a year with more adversity and a few setbacks, the Phyllis Arthur-led squad has taken some lumps and sits at 11-5 after two in-state losses to GAC and North Cobb. The latter will head to Lovingood Gymnasium on Saturday and offer McEachern a chance to settle the regular season score.
On the boys side of things, McEachern has shown and proved all season that the AAAAAAA title and possibly the Dick's Nationals title goes through Powder Springs this year. As one of the deepest teams in the country, McEachern might be led by a trio of Isaac Okoro, Sharife Cooper, and Babtunde Akingbola, but with Jared Jones, Devin Gordon, Brandon Suggs, Alyn Breed, Andre McElroy, and more, the list goes on when it comes to firepower for Coach Thompson's squad. Insert one of the country's best players in Charles Smith IV who transferred in from La Lumiere recently, and you've got a recipe for a great game on Saturday followed by what should be a fun team to watch for the rest of the season.
Join us on SUVtv for the boys-girls doubleheader of McEachern vs. North Cobb this Saturday at 6pm and 7:30pm.
