Man, what a week. I stood at Metter High School this past week, leaning against the wall behind the baseline watching the end of the Emanuel County Institute-Savannah Country Day girls' game - an appetizer before Portal took on Calvary Day in the Region 3-A tournament.

For others it's a chance to work out the kinks before the start of the region tournament. And yet for some it's the harsh realization that their high school basketball careers are coming to a close.
