NORTH FORSYTH AT ARCHER

When, where: Tonight, 6:30 p.m., at Archer High School in Lawrenceville.

Records, seedings: North is 28-2 and the No. 1 seed from Region 6-AAAAAA; Archer is 27-3 and the No. 1 seed from Region 8.

What to know: This is uncharted territory for both programs, but each took different paths. Archer advanced to its first quarterfinals appearance in the school’s brief three-year history with a 62-45 win over Roswell on Monday. The Lady Tigers got balanced scoring with three players in double figures, led by junior Madison Newby’s 17 points. Newby’s younger sister, Autumn, a freshman, is another key contributor for Archer. The 6-foot-2 center had 14 points and 10 rebounds against Roswell.

North, meanwhile, advanced to the quarterfinals for the first time since the school opened in 1994 with a 64-49 victory over Duluth on Monday at home. Lady Raiders junior Caroline Bowns led the way with 29 points. North has relied on its experienced core that includes Lochlain Corliss and Avery Scarbrough, outside shooting from Kendall Bennett and tenacious defense from all, particularly Sydney Pefanis. But Bowns has stepped up in the playoffs, averaging 21.8 points in her past four games.

What’s next: The winner will play the Marietta-Lowndes winner.
