The Dawson County High School varsity basketball teams will play at Philips Arena on Saturday against Rabun County High School.

Coach Steve Sweat's varsity girls team will play at 1 p.m. and will be followed by the boys game at 2:30 p.m.

Later, at 7:30 p.m, the Atlanta Hawks will square off against the San Antonio Spurs.

The Spurs are currently third in the Western Conference with an impressive 29-11 record.

San Antonio features star players Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobilli and Stephen Jackson.

The Hawks are currently 21-15 and are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.

Despite sliding lately, Atlanta has several big name players in Devin Harris, Al Horford, Josh Smith, Jeff Teague and Louis Williams.

Tickets for the two high school games and the pro game will be $30.

Each fan that purchases a ticket will get unlimited drinks and popcorn. Tickets can be purchased in the front office at the high school this week.

"The Hawks game on Saturday will be a reward to both teams and will be something they will always remember," said Thad Burgess, varsity boys coach.
