Michael Alpert of AJC calls DHS defense of title a "challenge"

AJC, Northside, 11/16/06, by Michael Alpert

BOYS BASKETBALL: FIVE QUESTIONS: Momentum, new challenges mingle

From the story:
Can Class AAA Dunwoody become the first team to win a third consecutive state championship since Mitchell-Baker did in Class AA from 1998 to 2000?

It's going to be challenging, especially without Charlotte signee An'Juan Wilderness, a two-time player of the year. But returners Zac Swansey and Delwan Graham average a combined 30 points, more than a third of the Wildcats' average per game last year.
Is Dunwoody's Zac Swansey as good as billed?

Just ask the University of Georgia, which last week got his letter of intent. He averaged 24 and 19 points the past two seasons and has proved himself a heady, highly athletic guard who'll be relied upon following the graduation of several key players.

Are Chattahoochee's Duke Mullis and Dunwoody's Scott Bracco the Northside's best coaches?

The numbers don't lie here. Mullis enters his 10th season having led the Cougars to region titles three times and having averaged 20 or more wins in the past eight seasons. Bracco starts his seventh season looking for a third consecutive state title. Before the championships in 2005-06 he steered the Wildcats to the sweet 16 in 2001 and '03 and the final four in '04.
