EDISON, GA (WALB) - Winning isn’t everything, but it is the only thing that Calhoun county basketball has done so far this year.

The Cougars are 25-0. That's a quarter century worth of wins, with no losses to show.

Its the program's first undefeated regular season, though they're more interested in putting together an unblemished postseason run.

The fellas down in Edison are the top team in the state in Class-A.

Right now the focus is on winning a third straight region tournament championship this weekend in Albany.

Their success this season is a far cry from what was expected.

Last year they graduated the winningest senior class in program history.

Instead of rebuilding, they’ve reloaded and are aiming at a first state title since 2015.

“Our kids came in motivated, ready to work," said head coach Marcus Shaw.

"Losing a great class like Rashun Williams, Bryan Smith and Jamal Price those guys were definitely great players for us and these kids knew we had to work hard every single day, and thats what they’ve done from the start of the season.”

Calhoun County is a 1-seed in the Region 1-A tournament.
