Clayton State to host South Regional


The Basketball Tournament announced today that Clayton State University, just outside of Atlanta, will host the South Regional July 10-12. Clayton State’s Athletics & Fitness Center underwent a major renovation in 2012 and can seat 1,400.

“We’re excited to play our first ever South Regional event just outside Atlanta at Clayton State” said Jonathan Mugar, Founder of The Basketball Tournament. “Clayton State’s easy accessibility and nice facilities make for the perfect host site.”

Clayton State joins Cal-State Los Angeles (West) in hosting regional play from July 10-12. Philadelphia University (Northeast) and DePaul (Midwest) will host regional play from July 17-19.

DePaul will also host the Super 17 weekend, during which the final 16 teams (4 from each region) and the defending champions Notre Dame Fighting Alumni will meet in Chicago to compete in the round of 16 and quarterfinals, playing down to the 4 semifinalists. The Fighting Alumni will play the lowest remaining seed from the Midwest live on Thursday July 23rd on ESPNU at 8pm ET. All quarterfinals games, to be played on Saturday July 25th, will also be televised live on ESPNU with marathon coverage starting at noon Eastern.

The 4 semifinalists who survive the Super 17 will then come together at Fordham University’s historic Rose Hill Gymnasium in New York City for the semi-finals and $1 million, winner-take-all championship August 1 and 2, all televised live on ESPN.
