State tournament berths are on the line for seven DeKalb County School District basketball teams as they play first round region tournament games early this week.

First round winners will join the 13 DCSD teams which have already secured berths for the GHSA State Tournaments set to begin on Tuesday, February 23 (girls) and Wednesday, February 24 (boys).

The Dunwoody Lady Wildcats (3-10) travel to Duluth (9-8) on Monday for a 5:00 pm Region 7-7A Tournament game. A victory would put the Wildcats in the semifinals against Norcross on Wednesday securing a Class 7A State Tournament spot.

Cedar Grove (9-5) travels to Sandy Creek (14-11) in one game and Redan (9-6) rides over to Atlanta to take on Douglass (10-6). All winners advance to the semifinals at Greater Atlanta Christian on Wednesday.
