Eighth ranked Jesup held off the upset bid from Janesville as the J-Hawks advanced to the 1A state tournament with a 56-52 win.

Jesup appeared to take control in the second half opening up a 41-33 lead, but the Wildcats rallied in the final minutes. A late bucket by Isaiah Carlson would pull Janesville within one in the final minutes. The J-Hawks, however, finished strong and never relinquished the lead.
