Cinderella Georgia Highlands eliminated the Blue Dragons 64-59. The Chargers advance to Friday’s second national semifinal against No. 2 Northwest Florida State.
The Region VI champion Blue Dragons end their season at 29-7. The 29 wins tie for the seventh most wins in Blue Dragon basketball history. The 36 games played tie for the fifth most played in a season.
