With the regular season in the record books, GCAA Men's and Women's DIII basketball teams now turn to their tournament this weekend to see who will advance to district play with the hopes of making the NJCAA national tournaments. Oxford-Emory will host the tournament which is set to begin this Saturday with two men's semi-final games and one women's semi-final contest and conclude on Sunday with both championship games.
# 2 Southern Crescent's Lady Tigers will face the #3 seeded Lady Bobcats on Saturday at 12 noon with the winner advancing to Sunday's 2 pm championship game to go up against #7 nationally ranked West Georgia Tech.
On the men's side three of the four teams finished the conference schedule with the same record therefore requiring a tie-breaker to establish the top three seeds. Oxford-Emory takes the #1 seed followed by Southern Crescent Tech with the #2 seed. The #3 seed went to the Golden Knights of West Georgia Tech with Georgia Northwestern Tech taking the #4 seed. Oxford will take on Georgia Northwestern at 2 pm followed by Southern Crescent playing West Georgia at 4 pm. The winners of these two contests will play for the right to call themselves GCAA champion Sunday at 4 pm.
