Manchester's boys topped Vidalia 71-62 in the second semi-final game Thursday at Macon in the GHSA AA Final Four, setting a title game with Laney.
Laney beat Jordan 52-44 earlier in the evening to end the Red Jackets season.
Jordan coach Gerald Turner saw his team lose four games this season, twice to Manchester, once the Northside and then the season-ending loss to Laney.
Even before the Manchester win on Thursday, Turner had thoughts on how good Laney actually is.
"They're a good team, a real good team," Turner said Thursday night. "They'll probably win the state title no matter who they play."
