Basketball on the Bayou

The 15th Annual Basketball on the Bayou is proud to announce that it will be hosted in the Downtown New Orleans Convention Center.  Last year we hosted over 300 teams and 400 college coaches/scouts in the beautiful downtown New Orleans at the Morial Convention Center. This year we will do it all over again under one roof with over 28 courts for 3 days from July 23rd – July 25th.
