"Three, it's a magic number."  That was the chorus to one of the "Schoolhouse Rock" segments that aired during Saturday morning cartoons in the 80's.  But for the Bleckley boys basketball team, three wasn't a magic number Tuesday night.

The Royals were facing Lamar County in Barnesville for round one of the 4-AA playoffs.  It was the third meeting between the two.  BC had won the first two, an old sports axiom says it's hard to beat a team three teams in one year.  It had been three years since the Royals had been to state.
