Boys Basketball in the State Championship Saturday, March 10
March 4th, 2018
For the second straight year, the boys basketball team is in the State Championship! After a thrilling Final Four win over Baldwin 66-61, St. Pius X will now face Upson-Lee High School on Saturday, March 10 at 4:00pm in McCamish Pavilion on the campus of Georgia Tech. The game will be a rematch of last season, in which Upson-Lee held off a furious St. Pius X comeback to defeat the Golden Lions 53-48.
This year, #1 ranked Upson-Lee will bring their national best 62 game winning streak to Georgia Tech to face a #2 ranked St. Pius X team that is 28-3 and 20-1 in their last 21 games. The game promises to be a classic! Last year, McCamish Pavilion was SOLD OUT, and we expect another sell out this year. We are encouraging all fans to buy their tickets online to guarantee entry. The link to buy tickets can be found HERE.
We recommend all fans get to the arena by 2:30pm to claim seats. We want to form a "U" shape around the arena of spirited St. Pius X fans. Upson-Lee and St. Pius X are the two best fan bases in the state. Let's rally behind our boys basketball team and take over McCamish Pavilion on Saturday!
