The Bulldogs host the Tip-Off Classic at the Decatur High gym. The girls and boys face Arabia Mountain on Monday night, Druid Hills on Tuesday.
Decatur High’s varsity basketball teams open their seasons tonight and Tuesday with the third annual Bulldog Tip-Off Classic at the Decatur High Arena. Tonight they play Arabia Mountain, the girls at 7 p.m., the boys at 8:30 p.m. They’ll play Druid Hills Tuesday at the same times. In Monday’s opening games, Paideia plays Druid Hills, the girls at 4 p.m., the boys at 5:30 p.m. Coach Charlie Copp’s boys team is coming off a frustrating 13-16 season, the school’s first losing season since 2005-06, and only the second since the late 1990s. A lot of that can be blamed on recurring ankle injuries to star guard Kurtis Robinsion who spent nearly his entire senior year rehabbing and playing at partial strength. For probably the first time in at …

Decatur girls play first game at 4 p.m. Wednesday, boys at 5:30 p.m. Thursday
The City Schools of Decatur are closed this week for winter break, but expect to see a lot of activity at the Decatur High School gymnasium. Decatur High is hosting the Region 6-AA basketball tournament. Twenty-two games will be played over the next six days at Decatur High’s 28-month-old, 2,000-seat arena. Decatur upgraded its athletic facilitles a few years ago. The size and quality of the gym, which has won several architectural awards, is the main reason a post-season tournament is being held in Decatur for the first time in a decade. Action opens at 6 p.m. today with the Maynard Jackson vs. Cross Keys girls game. Teams from the host school open play later in the week. Decatur’s girls, 21-4 and with probably their best team since the …

DHS boys lose, drop to two games below .500.
Coming into this season, Decatur High’s girls were 0-12 against Greater Atlanta Christian in basketball. During those games, Decatur lost by an average of 26.75 points per game, including one loss of 51 points in 2007, and last year’s embarrassing 66-32 loss in the regional tournament. But Friday night the Lady Bulldogs held on for a 57-55 win over the tenth-ranked Spartans and a two-game sweep of the regular-season series. “I really think [GAC players and coaches] thought the first time was a total fluke,” said Decatur coach Bill Roberts in reference to Decatur’s five-point win back in December. “I really think they felt they were gonna put it to us tonight.” But Decatur (ranked fifth in the Coaches Poll and sixth in the AJC) led nearly …
