Tucker Girls Win First-Ever Basketball State Title
History was made Friday in Macon as the Tucker High School girls won their first-ever state basketball championship.

The Tigers downed region rival Southwest DeKalb 83-65 to earn the Class AAAA state crown. Tucker scored the game’s first eight points and never looked back in whipping the defending state champs at the Macon Centreplex.

Frontcourt seniors Erykah Davenport, Nuba Jackson and Naima Jackson each had outstanding efforts in the final game for the Tigers. Read more from Score Atlanta on Tucker’s historic win here.

Elsewhere, the Miller Grove boys made a little history themselves by winning the Lithonia school’s sixth consecutive state title.

The Wolves got a game-high 21 points from senior Keith Pinckney to help cruise past Warner Robbins 70-43 to stake claim to the Class AAAAA state title.

The record sixth consecutive title matches the 20-year record set by the Hart County gilrs (1989-1994) for the most in Georgia history.
