The North Atlanta Boys basketball team finished their regular season on Wednesday night with a convincing win over Lithia Springs 65 – 42. Despite the challenges of the season which included no home game fans and a 14 day COVID hiatus, the team had one of its most successful regular seasons ever. The five starters were Charlie Hamilton, Kaleb Johnson, Khamani Olivacce, Montavious Myrick, and Tyson Motton. They led a balanced attack as each of the five averaged between 9 and 12 points a game and took turns playing the hero game to game. The team led the region in dunks (40 plus) with Montavious leading the way. Khamani was in state’s top 10 for assists and Charlie was one of the region’s leading 3-point marksmen. For the defensive fans out there Tyson led the team in charges taken and Kaleb provided several spectacular blocks. Check out Hudl.com for the highlights.
Now on to the playoffs!!!
The team’s opening playoff game will be at home on Tuesday, Feb 23 at 6:00PM against Houston County. You can also see home games broadcast live on NFHS.com.

On Friday night the North Atlanta Boys basketball team played one of their toughest games of the season pulling out an exciting one-point win over Langston Hughes, 66-65. Trailing by 7 with less than 3 minutes remaining, Tyson Motton led a comeback with 8 straight points including back to back 3-point baskets. With 7 seconds left and North Atlanta down one with the ball, our point guard Khamani Olivacce drove by his man and hit a short jumper with less than a second remaining to secure the win. Tyson Motton led all scorers with 22 points. Kaleb Johnson and Montavious Myrick contributed 15 and 10 points respectively while notching multiple morale building dunks. TJ Lewis came off the bench to nail two clutch 3 point baskets and Cam Ratcliff came in late to provide some tough situational defense. This was the team’s 8th consecutive win and runs their record to 13 – 2 and 5 – 1 in region play. North Atlanta is currently ranked 12th in the state.
Their next three games are: Tuesday, Jan 12 against Morrow (A); Friday, Jan 15 against Lakeside (A); and Saturday, Jan 16 against Morrow (H).
