A look at some of the best individual matchups we will see this weekend in the GHSA Final Four.

Class 7A

Deivon Smith (Grayson) vs. Sharife Cooper (McEachern)

Sharife Cooper and defending state champs McEachern get a second crack at Grayson. It was an ugly first meeting as Cooper scored just one point in the first half before finishing with 17 on 6-23 shooting in an 83-57 blowout. Deivon Smith on the other hand, completely dominated the showdown, going 8-15 for 17 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists. Cooper has been a second half player but the Indians, as its already been proven, stand no chance if Cooper can’t score consistently throughout the game.

Bruce Thornton Jr. (Milton) vs. Ja’hiem Hudson (Wheeler)

Both players control their respective positions as well as anyone in the state. Thornton is an elite point guard that is efficient on both ends while Hudson is a load to handle inside while being one of the state’s best rim protectors. When both players have good games, their teams win. Thornton went for 30 points and 8 assists against Newton while Hudson nearly posted a triple-double against Berkmar’s large frontline.
