Norcross High boy's basketball squad captures 5A Championship for the third time in as many years.

The state of Georgia has not seen this type of basketball dominance in quite some time.

Norcross High capped off an incredible season Saturday night with a thrilling 57-54 victory over Wheeler High in the boy's 5A State Championship game. With the win, Blue Devils have now a title in three straight seasons.

Norcross was able to hold Wheeler to its lowest point-total in this year's playoffs. And for the most part, Wheeler's defense was stout as well as they held Blue Devils star Al-Farouq Aminu to just 17 points.

In 4A action, Glenn Hills captured its first ever state crown with a 64-57 win over Carver-Columbus.

Reggie Middleton and Shawn Allen scored 18 points apiece for the Tigers in the historic win.
