Milton remains No. 1 in hoop rankings

Milton's title hopes took a significant hit when guard Charles Mann was assessed a pair of technicals against North Gwinnett, which will keep him out the final two games of the postseason. The squad was undefeated this season with Mann in the lineup and appeared a lock to reach the finals. Now, the Eagles face a tough Harrison squad minus its floor general.

No. 2 Columbia continues to steamroll opponents on the strength of its defense, which limited Carrollton to 30 points last round. The win sets up a rematch with Eagle's Landing, which held off Crisp County last round. Top-10 squads Shiloh (No. 8) and GAC (out) drop in the rankings after losing last round.

Here's a look at the top three teams:

1. Milton (27-4) — last week No. 1

2. Columbia (29-1) — last week No. 2

3. Miller Grove (22-9) — last week No. 3

*Milton had to forfeit three wins for using an ineligible player
