Basketball: Bryan County's teams face region opponents

The Bryan County girls are in, and the boys are knocking on the door: they’ll be looking to kick it open in the opening round of the Region 3A-DI basketball tournament which opens Tuesday at Metter High School.


Coach Brent Anderson’s Redskins (14-9, 6-4) will be heavily favored to beat Claxton (5-19, 0-10) when the two teams meet at 4 p.m. Tuesday in the opening round of the tournament. A win would put them in the Class A state playoffs for a third year in a row and a semifinal match-up with Savannah High (16-8, 9-1) at 5:30 p.m. Thursday. The region championship will be played Friday at 8:30 p.m. with the consolation game at 5:30.


Woodville-Tompkins (21-3, 9-1) is the number one seed having won a coin flip after tying with Savannah in the regular season race. Woodville and the Blue Jackets earned a bye into the semis with the Wolverines playing the winner of Tuesday’s 7 p.m. Metter-Screven County game at 8:30 on Thursday.


By virtue of winning the regular season race, Bryan’s girls (22-3, 10-0) got a first-round bye and will face the winner of Tuesday’s Savannah-Woodville game on Thursday at 7 p.m. Metter (15-4, 6-4) awaits the winner of Tuesday’s Screven (17-6, 5-5) vs. Claxton (5-19, 0-10) game.


The girls' championship game will be played Friday at 7 p.m. with the consolation game at 4. Bryan County’s girls are looking for their first region championship since 2017.
