Atlanta Christian beats Calhoun 58-55 for AA title

Posted: Updated:

MACON, Ga. (AP) - Isaiah Wilkins scored 29 points to lead undefeated Greater Atlanta Christian to a 58-55 win over Calhoun in the GHSA Class AA boys state championship game at the Macon Coliseum.

Wilkins, the step-son of former NBA All-Star Dominique Wilkins, added 12 rebounds for the Spartans, who won their second consecutive championship and fourth in five years.

The University of Virginia signee scored 18 of the 29 in the second half and shot 72 percent from the floor in the game. The rest of the Spartans combined to shoot 33 percent in the game.

The 6-foot-8 Wilkins helped the Spartans (32-0) outscore Calhoun 32-16 in the paint.

Calhoun missed a pair of 3-pointers in the final seconds that would have forced overtime.

Kaelan Riley led the Yellow Jackets (26-3) with 16 points, while Chandler Curtis added 14 points for Calhoun, which never trailed by more than six points.
