Event Overview: Southeast Basketball Academy (SEBA) will provide top Unsigned Seniors (Class of 2021) from throughout Georgia and the Southeast the opportunity to compete and display their talent in front of college coaches, media, and scouts in a special exposure event on March 20th.
The pandemic circumstances of this past year have significantly reduced opportunities for the Class of '21 to be seen and evaluated by College Coaches. This has resulted in many players not receiving the level of exposure which their talent merits. We are holding this event to continue to establish the "bridge" between College coaches and deserving student-athletes, and provide a platform for scholarship opportunities.
This one-day expo will consist of 5-on-5 Showcase games. Each participant will play in three (3) games. We will also have an inspirational speaker and a Top 24 All-Star Game.
Date: Saturday March 20, 2021
Location: Pope High School 3001 Hembree Rd NE Marietta, GA 30062
Promotion to the Next Level: SEBA has a proven and long established track record in helping players connect with College programs. Over the past 16 years, Over 900+ SEBA players have received scholarships and gone on to play college basketball.
