The Challenge will feature an intriguing lineup of 15U, 16U, and 17U teams competing in Atlanta during this one-day showcase. All games will be streamed live & on demand via SUVtv.
Running on November 28, the Turkey TipOff Classic will feature an intriguing three game slate at Thea Bowman Leadership Academy in Gary, IN. Fans that can't make it to the event will be able to watch all of the games live & on demand on SUVtv.
“The tournaments give kids more exposure in regard to recruiting,” says Gregory Jones II, owner of G2 Hoops, “Every high school player does not have the necessary resources to obtain an athletic scholarship to a college/university. Through our tournaments we provide a platform where high schools can be seen by college coaches and scouting services. We also want to raise the awareness of basketball at the youth level and provide quality events in grassroots basketball - SUVtv’s broadcast platform is a great element that helps us do both."
The Turkey Tipoff Classic schedule is as follows:
Saturday November 28 (All times CST)
4:00pm Calumet vs. Gary Thea Bowman
6:00pm Bishop Noll vs Gary West Side (Girls)
8:00pm Hammond High vs. Victory Christian
Live & on demand broadcast passes are available for $6 per game.
Charlotte, NC—November 11, 2020—Today, Best of Both Worlds Basketball Eventsl announced a partnership with basketball streaming service, SUVtv, for the 2020-2021 high school season.
