Hawks-Naismith Tip-Off Classic
Location: Pace Academy
966 West Paces Ferry Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30327
Dates: November 15th and 16th, 2019
Gearing up for an exciting weekend of basketball in the State of GA as the 2019-20 season gets underway. Pace Academy is the place to be, giving us a glimpse of who’s been in the lab sharpening up their skillsets. Have you faced those demons head-on and begun to address your weaknesses? Or will you continue to show cracks in your game that’ll allow your opponents to capitalize on your inability to get it done?
The consensus #1 Player in the State of GA (7’0 C Walker Kessler / UNC) will be on hand along with many others who’ll be showing that they too deserve braggings rights. Popscout will be in the building as we branch out from the West Coast to see if the ‘Dirty South’ has what it takes to become special. The Classic will experiment with a 30-second shot clock. Something new in the State of GA. It should be interesting to see which players and coaches can make the adjustments, pull a few rabbits from their hat, and in the process gain a few braggings rights.
Players to watch:
Woodward 7’0 Center Walker Kessler (North Carolina)
St. Francis guard Dwon Odom (Xavier)
East Coweta guard Brandon Stroud (Kennesaw State)
Mount Bethel Christian forward Jordan Meka (Georgia Tech)
Heritage-Newnan center Ebenezer Dowuona (N.C. State) & Guard Kasen Jennings (Kennesaw State).
