Basketball jocks score in Atlanta with Coady Roundball Classic

Gay basketball jocks from across the country converged on Atlanta over the weekend for the Coady Roundball Classic, which offered two days of games and plenty of nightlife.

Some two-dozen teams from across the country – including at least five from Atlanta – competed in the tournament hosted by the National Gay Basketball Association. Teams from outside Georgia included the Los Angeles Heat; San Francisco Rockdogs; New York City Hoopstarz, Cheerios and Rim City; Houston Avengers; DC Sentinels, Sentinels Red, Gray and Blue; and Ohio Fusion.

Atlanta teams won two of the five titles at the tournament, with Atlanta Flatline Reloaded topping the Competitive B Division and Atlanta Peach Impact taking the Rec Division. Other division winners: DC Sentinels A (Open), Southern California Ballers (Competitive B-) and DMV Elite (Competitive).

Games took place on Saturday and Sunday at the Suwanee Sports Academy, but nightlife events included stops at Truth and O'Kami Ultra Lounge.
