Pace Academy and Milton will represent the Peach State during the 2021 Geico Nationals, which just so happens to feature the top 10 HS boys basketball teams in the country. #8 Pace will play against #9 Oak Hill on March 31, 2021. The Winner gets #1 Montverde the following day. #6 Milton takes on #3 IMG Academy on April 1st, 2021. Talk about becoming battle-tested as a squad, it doesn’t get any better than this. Milton almost  ran the table in the Peach State this year, going 28-2 and 10-0 in region play. They currently are in the driver’s seat of a 26 game winning streak, taking the Region ‘Chip as well as a State Ring in GA’s top Division – and one of the toughest HS basketball conferences in the country (GHSA Class AAAAAAA) per MaxPreps. Both Milton and Pace Academy will bring top recruits front and center to see if they can truly show up and out on one of the biggest stages on the HS Hoops circuit. The final is set for Saturday, April 3, 2021 – televised live on ESPN. It doesn’t get any better than that. Good luck coaches and players. We hope you guys meet in the ‘Chip. That would be insane!!
