Teams come to Leesburg for summer hoops

High school basketball season is many months away, but some local teams are getting on the court.

Lee County hosted a weekend of summer basketball, with teams from all over Southwest Georgia participating. Westover, Worth County, Mitchell County, and other teams all played two games on Thursday, two more on Friday, and a tournament on Saturday.

For coaches, it's a chance for some of the newer players to gain some experience.

"You get a chance to see what kind of kids you have and build some chemistry," said Lee County coach Kirven Davis.

The Trojans will travel to Florida State's team camp next weekend.
