MACON — In a season that may not soon be forgotten, the Gainesville boys basketball team likely would have preferred the final game to be a little more memorable. The Red Elephants capped off a Cinderella-like turnaround to their 2012-2013 season with a 61-57 loss to Miller Grove in the Class AAAAA state finals on Friday at the Macon Centerplex in Macon. Gainesville began the season with a 1-6 record while several key players wrapped up football season with their own state championship on the gridiron, only to end up back in a state title game.
