SEBA Atlanta Spring College Showcase Saturday March 18, 2017 "Recognized as one of the Nation's Top Spring Exposure Camps for Unsigned Seniors"
Atlanta, Ga – The 2017 Southeast Basketball Academy (SEBA) Atlanta College Showcase took place on March 18 on the campus of Oglethorpe University. For the past twelve years, this event has successfully brought together available prospects from throughout the South and provided them with an opportunity to demonstrate their abilities to College Coaches. The event has served as bridge between players and coaches and has resulted in scholarships and playing opportunities for hundreds of players since its inception.
This year’s edition of the SEBA College Showcase carried on that tradition, as 180 prospects representing all parts of Georgia as well as seven other states were eager to compete and display their talent to the large collection of college coaches in attendance.
The Showcase provided a complete and well-rounded day of competition, development, inspiration, and exposure. During the morning session, the players participated in fundamental skills stations conducted by an excellent group of top high school, travel ball, and skill development coaches. Following the morning stations, Coach Courtney Brooks, who led Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy (SACA) squad to National prominence and State Titles in 2004 and 2006, delivered a rousing and memorable speech which captivated all in attendance. Coach Brooks passionately spoke on the importance of pursuing dreams, sacrifice, discipline, gratitude, and faith. At Mid-day, the players moved into the 5-on-5 games, where they competed in three (3) full-court games with their respective camp team throughout the afternoon and early evening. The event concluded with an exciting and intense "Top 30" All-Star Game. The well-played finale was a fitting cap to a highly successful camp.
Below is a multi-part recap of the camp’s top performers:
