STATESBORO, Ga. (WSAV) – For the second-straight year, the Statesboro girls basketball team lifted the 2-AAAAA region trophy by downing Wayne County 59-32 Friday night.
The Blue Devils, led by Georgia Southern commit Lacy Robins, quickly erased a halftime deficit and built a critical double-digit lead in the third quarter.
“I came in to the second half focused,” Robins said. “Just played my game. I know the first half was tight but I know Lacy Robins and I played my game.”
Statesboro locks up the #1 seed — guaranteeing home court advantage for the majority of the AAAAA state playoffs. “It’s huge!” Robins said with a smile. “I’m surprised all these people came out but I’m so happy they came out and supported us. I’m amazed and excited — all that together.”
