Here are the best of the second-round games, followed by a complete list of the weekend matchups:
*Gainesville at McIntosh (boys): Fifth-ranked Gainesville rebounded from a loss to Cedar Shoals in the 8-AAAAA championship game with a 68-62 victory over Villa Rica. No. 4 McIntosh has won 17 consecutive games, including a 100-69 victory over Carver-Columbus in the first round. This game features two of the top players in Class AAAAA – McIntosh's Lyons and Gainesville senior D'Marcus Simonds, who was a McDonald's All-American nominee.
*Mays at Grovetown (girls): Grovetown (28-1) has the best record of any AAAAA girls team. The Warriors have won 11 consecutive games, all by at least 13 points, and are coming off a 50-point win over Camden County in the first round. But sixth-ranked Mays (21-7) comes from a region (6-AAAAA) that has produced seven of the past eight champions in the second-highest classification. Mays was the runner-up to region rival Stephenson last year.
