The annual high school proving grounds of the NY2LA Basketball Association returns in 2020 and it once again promises to be the top independent travel circuit in the country.  Open to boy’s 15U-17U teams the NY2LA Basketball Association has consistently set the bar for independent teams over the past few years and in 2020 it promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Launched in 2016 the NY2LA Basketball Association has played host to 1,000’s of college coaches of all levels in their various stops over the years.  In addition, the high school travel team circuit has also featured some NBPA Top 100 Camp selections as well as a number of Division 1 alumni including, but not limited to, the likes of D.J. Carton (Ohio State), Harland Beverly (Miami, FL), Xavier Pinson (Missouri), Terrence Lewis (Iowa State), Martice Mitchell (Minnesota), Isaac Lindsey (UNLV),  Teyvion Kirk (Drake), Musa Jallow (Ohio State), Baylor Hebb (Loyola-Chicago), Carter Gilmore (Wisconsin), Nana Akenten (Nebraska), etc.  

The 2020 installment promises to be exceptional once again with electric platforms, a national schedule, and opportunities to participate in the premiere independent platforms in the country each of the NCAA “Live” Evaluation periods.  The opening weekend April 17-19, 2020 the NY2LA Basketball Association tips off in Louisville, KY at the Grassroots Showcase with all games of all ages in one facility at the Kentucky Expo Center through our announced partnership with Gary Charles of the Las Vegas Big Time and Tucker Neale of Ohio Basketball.  We follow that up April 24-26, 2020 with the annual Spring Extravaganza in Chicago, Illinois, an event that has seen college coaches fill the sidelines over the past few years. 

The championships of the NY2LA Basketball Association stand to be electric as always with the recently announced partnership with the Hoop Seen as they will now tip off July 9-12, 2020 in Atlanta, GA as part of the Best of South platform.  All games for every age group will also be inside one facility at the Georgia World Congress Center.  Gary Charles of the Las Vegas Big Time will also work with NY2LA Sports as a national consultant on this particular partnership with the Hoop Seen and the Best of the South platform.  In addition to the platform partnerships, from a coverage stand point the NY2LA Basketball Association and all NY2LA Sports platforms in 2020 will work hand in hand with Dark Horse Recruits and Dark Horse Media to increase exposure opportunities and enhance the recruiting experience for all players and all college coaches of every level.  With convenience, exposure, opportunities, and quality being a premium in the every changing recruiting landscape the NY2LA Basketball Association offers up all that and more with three exceptional tournament platforms in 2020!

While the tournament side is taken care of in high quality fashion the NY2LA Basketball Association and NY2LA Sports will also offer up a couple of high caliber camp options for participants in the 2020 with the NY2LA Basketball Academy and the NY2LA Sports Academic Showcase.  Each of these will directly provide participants of the NY2LA Basketball Association and the NY2LA Sports platforms additional opportunities for exposure at whatever level they may be as a college prospect.  Both will be held during July 2020 with additional details and information coming in the future.
