The Lanier Longhorns (Sugar Loaf, GA), are a fast-paced team that is disciplined on defense...  Led by 6'5 senior point guard Sion James, a Tulane commit, Lanier's team strengths include their guard play and versatility...  Two-time region coach of the year Brendan Mayweather says, "I believe in coaching kids hard and holding them to a standard that will last a far longer than their basketball careers."  Beyond James, 6'0 junior guard Andrew McConnell is a player to watch, and he's ranked as the country's 121st prospect in the Class of 2021...  The Longhorns have had the player of the year in their region each of the past two seasons, and that is likely again in 2019-20...  "We plan to compete at a high level," remarked Coach Mayweather with respect to Lanier's hopes heading into their first CCC, "and give ourselves a chance to enjoy a trip to the other side of the country."  If things go Lanier's way, they have the potential for a region championship and deep Georgia playoff run...
