Early on, it appeared as though the GHSA Class AAAAA state playoff matchup between Statesboro High School and Cross Creek would be a tight contest, featuring three lead changes in the first half. However the final score proved otherwise as the Blue Devils rolled to a 66-54 win over Cross Creek Wednesday night to advance to the second round of the sweet 16 round of the state playoffs. The Blue Devils (22-8) were led by their senior group, which accounted for 51 of the team’s total points.
