LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

The Best of the Best all-star classic will pit Region 1-AAAAAA against Region 1-AAAA to settle which South Georgia class had the best talent this season.

This Saturday all-star teams from both classes will face of at Lee County Gym.

Teams consists of the players who revived all-region honors. Both games will be coached by the respective Americus-Sumter and Colquitt County coaches.

Lee County's Kirvin Davis organized the event as a way to get together one last time before the region shakeup which will take place next season.

"It's an example to let people know we can compete viciously during the season, but at the end we can also come together for the sake of the kids," said Davis.

"It's all in fun and games," said Lee county guard Jalin Wimberly. "It's very competitive but it all comes down to who wins and who grinds. 6-A got it, but we'll show them Saturday."

Tickets for Saturday's event are 8 dollars. The girls game tips at 5 and the boys at 7:30. Between they also plan to have a dunk and 3-point competition.
