Augusta, Ga--The Laney boys join the Lady Wildcats in the GHSA state semifinals after beating Callaway 63-44 Wednesday night.

Maurice Paige was a force on the inside as he poured in a game high 22 as the Wildcats dominated the Cavs in the final 16 minutes outscoring them 27 to 14.

It was just a seven point game at the half, but Laney's defense stepped it up a notch and held Callaway to just eight points in the third and then six more in the fourth as they are off to Milledgeville and the state semifinals.

"We got careless with the ball at times and that hurt us and it kept the game close, but once the guys settled in and the guys understood we could go inside and they would either have to double or give us open shots. So we went inside and they didn't double and that was exploited." said Shawn Parks

They will now take on Vidalia on Saturday night at 8pm. That will be proceeded by the Laney-Douglass girls game in the GHSA Semifinals
