The Real Deal in the Ville Back for Second Year




The SMAA Trojans will be hosting the "The Real Deal in the Ville" AAU boys' and girls' basketball event March 14-16. The event will feature 3rd through 12th graders in Division I and II. Claude Harold III is overseeing the event and says it is a great opportunity for high school players to jump into the AAU basketball season.


"It's probably one of the best ice breakers, you know before teams get in deep competition in April, May, June, and July," said Harold. "This is probably one of the most competitive events in the nation."


Apparently, many other teams thought so too. Forty teams from Florida, Georgia and South Carolina participated in the event last year and this year Harold has more than 80 teams already registered with over a month left until the registration deadline. Teams this year are traveling from all over the nation, from Houston to New Orleans and even Kentucky and Harold thinks it's because it was such a success last year.


"There were very competitive teams," said Harold. "It was not just the quantity but more so the quality of programs that were coming to the event."


The tournament is partnered with an NAIA school in Jacksonville, Edward Waters College, who lends them the use of their facilities. In return, the tournament donates a portion of the proceeds to the United Negro College Fund.


This tournament is definitely one you won't want to miss, but register soon! The entry deadline is February 21 and has already been pushed forward because of the high volume of entries. The entry fee for each team is $300 and includes pool play followed by bracket play with a three game minimum. The first and second place teams will receive trophies.
