Morrow advances with win over Newnan

The Morrow Mustangs overcame an early deficit and built an 11-point halftime lead behind the hot shooting of Anthony Calloway on their way to posting a 63-54 victory over Newnan in the first round of the Class AAAAAA playoffs.

Calloway scored 14 of the first 32 points for Morrow (21-10). He finished with a game-high 22 points. Newnan’s Doniel Dean finished with 18 to pace the Cougars. Morrow will travel to face North Cobb (24-4) Saturday in the second round.

This is Morrow’s first appearance in the state tournament since the 2007-08 season.
