Canes one of 10 teams to play in the inaugural LakePoint Basketball Showcase on December 10
LakePoint Sports in Emerson will host its first annual LakePoint Basketball Showcase presented by the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame.
The one-day, five-game event will be played in the new Champions Center at LakePoint on Saturday, December 10.
There will be one girls game and four boys games with teams from Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina.
The Showcase will kick off at 1 pm with the No. 1 rated girls basketball player in the nation, Olivia Nelson- Ododa, and Winder-Barrow as they take on The Lovett School. Following the girls match-up, the boys will take over as two Georgia teams, Hillgrove and Warner Robins, face off at 2:30.
The third game of the day will feature Cartersville High School and Meadowcreek. Returning four starters from last season's region championship team, Cartersville will look to use their experience against a relatively young Meadowcreek team.
The 5:30 game will feature a pair of out-of-state teams in Chattanooga (TN) McCallie and Charlotte (NC) Providence Day. Providence Day boasts one of the top guards in the nation, Devon Dotson, while McCallie will look to continue their success coming off a 25-win season.
The final game of the night will pit two Georgia teams, North Cobb Christian and Sandy Creek against each other to conclude an action-packed day. Both teams are coming off 20+ win seasons a year ago, making for an exciting match-up to close out the first annual LakePoint Basketball Showcase presented by the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame.
The Showcase is open to the public. Adult tickets, will be available at the door for $7. Student tickets will be $5.
