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.
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.
