South Cobb reached the second round of the playoffs in 2019 and made the semifinals as recently as 2017. The team is led by Emon Washington, a transfer who had led his Mississippi school to a 30-1 finish last year, and sophomore point guard Zocko Littleton, a four-star recruit with offers from Georgia and Georgia Tech.
Four previously unbeaten teams lost last week. They were LaGrange, Hart County, Christian Heritage and Providence Christian. Only four remain. They are Americus-Sumter, Treutlen, Wilcox County and Terrell County.
