By Greg Williams, 11/14/16, 12:00PM EST



Hoop Quest, is continuing to embark upon a mission of reporting the five best boys basketball teams in the Augusta, GA CSRA area this season weekly.  Check below to see the story of your favorite CSRA team and look for the #HoopQuestCSRA5 hashtag.

Week 1 - November 13, 2016:

1. Butler Bulldogs (Augusta, GA)

2016-2017: Record:  1-0

Notes: Open the season this past Saturday vs. another #HoopQuestCSRA5 in Lakeside HS and won a very hard fought and emotional game 85-77.  This team has some veteran depth and can cause a lot of havoc on opposing teams on the defensive end with their up-tempo and loose approach.  

2. Josey Eagles (Augusta, GA) 

2016-2017: Record: 1-0 

Notes: Lead by a committee of experienced seniors, this team has the potential to be the CSRA best team to watch and should make a long run in the GA 2-AA State.  

3. Richmond Academy (Augusta, GA) 

2016-2017: Record:  0-0

Notes: Features a top college prospect in 2017 6'5 F Moses Williams and 2 guards that can get it done in 2018 G Dantavian Stephens and 2017 G Jason Weaver.

4. Lakeside (Martinez, GA)

2016-2017: Record: 0-1

Notes: Open the season with a tough loss vs. Butler this past Saturday 85-77.  Look for the Panthers to bounce back quick, I would hate to be there next opponent. Well balanced team lead by 2019 PG Kalen Williams, 2017's Deon Berrien & Kre'Sean Hall, and a host of high productive perimeter players.  

5. Thomson (Thomson, GA)

2016-2017: Record: 0-0

Notes: One of the areas most athletic team, led by 2017 Wing Darius Turman that can get it done on both ends & plays above the rim with the best of them.

Other Teams to Watch: Glenn Hills (Augusta, GA); North Augusta (North Augusta, SC; Aquinas (Augusta, GA); Westside (Augusta, GA); Aiken (Aiken, SC)
