GHSA Statement on Basketball State Championships

Georgia High School Association Executive Director Gary Phillips is confirming today that the outcomes of the games in last week's
state championship basketball tournament will stand despite an error in the setup of the court at the Macon Centreplex.


"We offer our sincerest apologies to the players, coaches, and fans of all involved teams," said Phillips. “We consulted with the
GHSA Board of Trustees and considered all options and alternatives. We concluded that the only reasonable resolution is to allow
the games to stand as they were played and competed.”


“We are conducting a thorough review of the current policies that should have prevented this and will be implementing new procedures
to ensure that this never happens again.”
