The last time a Bleckley County Middle School boys basketball team won in the Middle Georgia Middle School Athletic Association basketball tournament was 2009. That team featured many future stars for the Royals including Rydealous Taylor, Derrick Farrow, and Ken Hughes.
That long losing streak was broken Thursday night in the first round of this year's MGMSAA tournament being played at BCMS. The seventh-seeded Barons upended third seed Dublin 36-35 on a Shamar Rouse bucket as time expired.
They'll play for a championship game berth against JR Trippe at 7:45 pm.
