Central Gwinnett had the best basketball player on the court Friday night in Alexandra Frasier, but North Forsyth’s girls’ basketball team is too good, too deep and too well-coached to let one individual beat them — not during the regular season, and certainly not in the playoffs. So even though Frasier ignited a 10-0 start for Central Gwinnett and finished with 33 points, the Lady Raiders never panicked. They knew they had the tools to come out on top, and with a fourth quarter push that’s exactly what they did, winning 63-49 in the first round of the Class AAAAAA tournament.
