incredibly challenging week and lost their first game of the season as a result. On Monday at home, it took overtime for them to edge AAAA's Bainbridge 63-61. Then on Friday, they edged Early County 79-76 on the road. Finally, on Saturday at Seminole County, they finished on the wrong end of a 71-65 game. This week - after a six-day layoff - they'll host Fitzgerald (7-4, 3-2) on Friday and Berrian (7-9 0-5) on Saturday.

2. Lovett (12-3, 6-0 R6): The Lions roared to a 64-46 win on the road over then No. 2-ranked GAC on Saturday and took the Spartans' spot in the rankings in the process. The win was part of their perfect 3-0 week which also included a road win over KIPP (74-51) last Monday and a home win over Wesleyan (48-32) on Friday. They picked up where they left off this week with a 62-45 win over Hapeville Charter on Monday. They close the week at Pace (6-8, 5-1) on Friday.

3. Seminole County (12-4, 5-1 R1): The Indians' big win over Thomasville on Saturday catapulted them up the rankings from last week's No. 9 spot. That capped a 3-0 week that began with a 71-59 win at Miller County last Monday and a 81-58 win over Fitzgerald on Friday. However, they began this week with an 82-69 loss to AAAA's Bainbridge on Tuesday. They'll look to get back on track with another non-region contest against Miller County (2-11) on Saturday.

4. Crawford County (13-1, 5-0 R4): The Eagles soared to a 3-0 record last week, including region wins at Monticello (73-55) on Monday and Northeast (72-57) on Friday. On Saturday, they defeated A's No. 7 team, Taylor County, 64-57 on Saturday in non-league play. They haven't played since, and on Friday they'll host Lamar County (7-7, 3-2), then travel to Northside (8-7) for a non-region contest on Saturday.

5. GAC (11-7, 6-1 R6): The Spartans - already having an underwhelming overall record - dropped their first region game of the season to Lovett at home, which knocked them down three spots in the rankings. They did beat Wesleyan (62-46) last Tuesday and KIPP (70-43) on Friday to finish the week 2-1. They started this week with a 66-47 win over BEST on Tuesday and host No. 8 Holy Innocents' (13-4, 4-3) on Friday.

6. Chattooga (17-1, 5-1 R7): The Indians went 2-0 last week, including a thrilling 70-68 overtime win at Coosa on Friday in league play. They also beat Armuchee 81-42 at home last Monday. They continued to roll this week with a 92-52 region home win over Darlington and will host Model (11-5, 6-1) on Friday.

7. Manchester (9-5, 3-0 R5): The Blue Devils went 3-for-3 in league play last week with wins over Chattahoochee County (88-30) at home on Monday, Bowdon (62-60) on the road on Friday and Bremen (97-52) back at home on Saturday. Their first game of this weeks comes at Heard County (9-8, 2-1) on Friday. After that, they head to Troup County (5-8) for a non-region contest on Saturday.

8. Holy Innocents' (13-4, 4-3 R6): It was an incredibly disappointed start to 2016 for the Golden Bears as they lost 63-58 at home to Pace in league play last Monday. That loss cost them five spots in the rankings, but more importantly, puts them in a position where they'll have to fight for the fourth and final playoff spot for their region. They've gone 3-0 since with wins over BEST, Wesleyan and KIPP, but face another stiff challenge at No. 5 GAC on Friday.

9. Vidalia (15-2, 8-0 R2): Dating back to last Monday, the Indians are on a four game win-streak, having beaten Jeff Davis (91-59), Bryan County (76-38), Montgomery County (91-57) and Long County (76-65). All except the Montgomery County game were region contests. They close out the week at Benedictine (8-6, 4-3) on Friday.

10. Early County (13-3, 4-1 R1): Tied for second place in the region and hanging with tough competition - they nearly beat top-ranked Thomasville last week - the Bobcats make their debut in the rankings. They went 2-1 last week and their 67-62 win over Fitzgerald was likely the kicker that put them in the top 10. They'll travel to Randolph-Clay (12-5) for a non-region contest on Friday, then to Brooks County (5-10, 1-4) to close out the week on Saturday.
