Who will be crowned
champion of THE SOUTH?

Live Period for D2, d3, naia, & juco Men’s Coaches*


For many years this event was the place to be and the backbone of the spring season.  Start your travel basketball season off here at the Battle of the South Classic.  Let's see how competitive your teams will be for the 2023 Spring/Summer.  Once again, we will schedule your first game according to your arrival time into Jackson and meet your request if you coach two teams in pool play so you can catch all of your games when possible. We will finish the tournament mid afternoon on Sunday. This will be the place to be March 30-31, 2024 as we expect teams from across the State of Mississippi and throughout the Southeast region to once again descend on Jackson to play against the best and enjoy a weekend of excellent basketball. Register early as the field will be limited and packed with talent.

NBA players such as Justise Winlow, Demarcus Cousins, Rodney Hood, Quinndary Weatherspoon, Robert Woodard II, Malik Newman, Greg Monroe, Justin Jackson, Kelly Oubre, Glenn "Big Baby" Davis, Johnny O'Bryant, and Isaish Canaan, and many more all played in the Battle of the South tournament when they where in high school.
