3. Cartersville 6-3

Gainesville and Magic City will concentrate on preparations for a return to action in the 2007 season.
The mission of the World Basketball Association is to teach, develop, and expose basketball players to NBA, NBDL, CBA, and International Scouts while providing each community an exciting brand of basketball and entertainment.
The purpose of the WBA is to serve as a training ground to develop professional players, coaches, and personnel on and off the court. Emphasis is placed on fundamental development, career development, community involvement, and education.
