Atlanta, Georgia - The 2018-2019 GHSA state playoffs begin tonight and it is win or go home time for every program around the state. We all know Georgia's highest classification, class 7A, is not only the highest class but the most competitive class and especially on the basketball court. Last seasons champions caught many people by surprise and that surprise was Meadowcreek High School defeating powerhouse Norcross High School for the 7A title. 

The question that has been passed around all season long is could Meadowcreek repeat as champions in the toughest class? The answer is yes they potentially can. The Mustangs lost two key pieces from last year's championship squad but returned two key pieces and starters in South Florida commit 2019 SG Jamir Chaplin and 2021 PG Kedrick Green. Of course nobody was expecting those two guys to carry the load this year by themselves. North Carolina natives UAB commit 2019 PG Jalen Benjamin (pictured above) and Temple commit 2019 SG Damian Dunn were two key transfers the Mustangs picked up and two guys who ran with Chaplin on the Adidas Gauntlet with Stackhouse Elite (NC). 

Benjamin and Dunn bought the offensive and defensive spark to this year's team
