It's another feather in the cap for the already-busy .
A prestigious travel basketball event and recruiting hotbed, the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions, will operate at the facility Friday-Sunday.
“Our tournament has been held in North Carolina for 18 years, but with all of the changes the NCAA is making to the recruiting process, we felt we needed to find a new home,” Gibbons said in a news release.

Gibbons long has been one of the top basketball talent evaluators
in the country. Over 200 universities utilize his annual All Star report to assist
them in the recruiting process.
This past summer, Gibbons visited the Suwanee Sports Academy (SSA) and felt like there was a great match. “Not only does SSA have one of the premier facilities in the country for this type of tournament, but they also bring great operational expertise and experience to the table,” Gibbons added.
“We are really proud to be able to partner with Bob on this tournament. He is one of the most reputable guys in the industry and his tournament has been a mainstay for almost two decades,” said SSA General Manager Mike Eddy.
The tournament will have 180 teams. Spectators are welcome and can buy tickets at the door. All tournament schedules and details can be found online at www.ssasports.com.
“This is maybe a notch above any tournament we have hosted in
terms of scale and level of involvement we have ever had,” Eddy said.
