Boys pre-playoff basketball rankings

In Class AAAAAAA, top-ranked McEachern scored a 73-55 win over North Paulding to complete a perfect 27-0 regular season and secure the top seed out of Region 3 over the weekend. Meadowcreek, Grayson, Norcross and Pebblebrook round out the top 5.

Tri-Cities enters the playoffs at No. 1 in Class AAAAAA ahead of a deep list of contenders and Class AAAAA No. 1 Buford is joined by Eagle’s Landing and Southwest DeKalb in the top 3.

Dawson County, which beat GAC in the Region 7 title game, is third. Cedar Grove, the Region 5 No. 1 seed, is fourth with Windsor Forest rounding out the top-5.
