Titan Holiday Classic moving to Civic Center

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 

The Albany Tech College basketball program has been so successful that other technical colleges in the state have started their own programs.

Now Albany Tech is ready to start a new holiday tradition. 

The Albany Tech men and women will host their holiday classic that will be played for the first time at the Albany Civic Center.

The tournament has attracted several top area men's and women's teams including Darton College, South Georgia Tech men and Alabama Southern.

This event last year was held during Thanksgiving.

Titans head coach Sylvester Patterson says the school believes pushing the event back to just before New Years will allow local basketball fans to see some of the top teams in Alabama and Georgia in action.

The tournament is also a big deal for the Titan players who are looking forward to playing in the Civic Center.

 

"We want to come in an experience the feeling of playing in this big arena. It seats around 3,000 or 4,000 people. My guys have never played in anything this big. Especially, if they haven't made it to a state championship game. We just want to open up in the Civic Center. Bring the people in and let them check out what we do," said Albany Tech head coach Sylvester Patterson.

Adults who bring a canned good to be donated to the Food Bank will receive $2 off their admission price on Friday and Saturday.

Here is Friday's Schedule for the Albany Tech Titan Classic at the Albany Civic Center.

12:00pm   Chattahoochee Tech vs Alabama Southern   women
2:00pm     Darton College vs ASA College    women
4:00pm     South Georgia Tech vs Alabama Southern men
6:00pm     Albany Tech  vs Middle Georgia Tech  women
8:00pm     Albany Tech vs Middle Georgia Tech   men

    I think its safe to say Jameis Winston likes to hang out with East Texas talent. The Tampa Bay quarterback was in Lufkin Wednesday night with former teammate Jorvorskie Lane to help the former Lufkin star talk with kids and support his "Lane of Hope" foundation. But, earlier Wednesday, a picture surfaced on social media of Winston working out with Adrian Peterson in Houston at a training facility.
