MACON, Ga. (AP) - Caliya Robinson scored 20 points to lead McEachern to an 81-62 win over Archer Saturday in the GHSA Class AAAAAA girls state championship game at the Macon Coliseum.

The Indians (28-2) overwhelmed Archer (29-4) in the second half with Robinson and Te’a Cooper leading the way. McEachern’s star juniors - both drew a slew of college coaches to Macon and are considered among the top junior players in the country by ESPN - sat much of the second quarter with three fouls each.

McEachern led by four points at the half but outscored Archer 25-11 in the third quarter to pull away.
