About the 2019 Best of the South
HoopSeen will run the Best of the South basketball travel team tournament at the Georgia World Congress Center July 11-14, 2019 in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. The event will be the single largest tournament in the country for non-sponsored teams during the important live July NCAA recruiting period. Nike will play host to the Peach Jam in nearby Augusta and the Under Armour Finals will be in the north Atlanta suburbs in Emerson. Georgia will be the epicenter of the NCAA recruiting period in July. There will be 35 courts under one roof at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta, the most convenient travel city in North America. Teams will have the opportunity to play in front of hundreds of college coaches in one setting all the while explore one of the most vibrant cities in the United States.
