NEW YORK, NY – The National Basketball Players Association (NBPA), the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (“SIAC”) and the Southwestern Athletic Conference (“SWAC”) are pleased to announce their continued partnership in hosting the second annual Top 50 Basketball Camp.

The Camp will take place July 27-29 on the campus of Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA.  Twenty-five of the best players from each conference will be featured at the camp in a model similar to the NBPA’s Top 100 Camp. Players will receive on-court skill development from current and retired NBA players as well as participate in leadership and life skills development sessions off the court.


“We are thrilled to continue this collaboration with the SWAC and SIAC as it provides a unique opportunity for our members to share their knowledge and life experiences directly with these student-athletes,” said NBPA Executive Director, Michele Roberts.

The camp also aims to cultivate and create coaching and talent pipelines for current and retired NBA players exploring the transition into careers in intercollegiate athletics.

“The Conference is excited about the continued partnership with the NBPA and the SIAC to put on the Top 50 camp,” said SWAC Interim Commissioner Edgar Gantt.

“This camp allows our men’s basketball student-athletes the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge of the game of basketball at the highest level. The camp also offers lifelong educational opportunities that campers can take with them to be positive impactful leaders on campus, in their communities and most important in life.”

In addition to skill development and on-court drills, the camp will include a series of highly-competitive scrimmages and games, giving the players the opportunity to showcase their talent against the best of their neighboring conference.
