1st All-Georgia State University Intramural Basketball Tournament

Posted On June 26, 2017

Perimeter campus students joined their Atlanta counterparts on March 31 to participate in the first annual All-Georgia State Intramural basketball tournament. Eight teams, comprised of individual campus champion and runner-up teams, met for some friendly competition at the Clarkston Campus gymnasium. The semi-final games, followed by the championship game, took place the following day, April 1. Of the eight teams, four represented the Atlanta Campus, two came from the Clarkston Campus, and an additional two teams came from the Decatur and Dunwoody campuses.

The Perimeter teams took an early lead in the tournament, winning 3 of the 4 first round games. The sole Atlanta Campus team that survived the first round, the Monstars, would go on to win the tournament. Along with receiving a champion t-shirt, the winning team had their team name inscribed on a trophy that will be displayed in the Student Recreation Center.

“The idea had been floating around for a while,” states Dr. Zachary Schneider, Assistant Director of Intramurals. “We saw it as a great way to foster collaboration between the campuses. Plus, it was a great opportunity to work with colleagues you don’t see every day.”

One of those colleagues is Jason Brown, Staff Assistant for the Recreation Department, who oversees Intramurals for the Perimeter campuses. “My favorite part of the tournament,“ says Brown, “was the competitiveness that stayed constant throughout the tournament.” In addition to a competitive spirit, players displayed a mutual feeling of cooperation. Brown adds that “no one was disrespectful and everyone abided by the rules. There were no fights or arguments; we all really had a great time!”

Montae Campbell - 3 point contest winnerBetween the semi-final and championship games, a 3 point contest was held for players to demonstrate their individual skill. Over ten players participated, but it was Monstars team member Dontae Campbell who won the trophy.

One challenge Schneider and Brown faced when organizing the tournament was balancing the hectic schedules of busy college students. In additional to attending class, Brown points out that many students work part-time jobs. “They are mainly working on weekends and times they are not in school; therefore, a lot of students were not able to make the games. Going forward, we would like to solidify dates and times at the beginning of the season so students will be able to plan accordingly.”

img_6340The basketball tournament is not the first time Georgia State campuses have come together for an Intramural event. “The first All-Georgia State Intramural tournament actually occurred in the Fall when Panthersville hosted a flag football tournament,” explains Schneider. The enthusiasm displayed by students at the football tournament encouraged Schneider and Brown to continue collaborating. Brown agrees, adding “the students are asking for tournaments more and more now, so I know that it will become a big thing for us. The competition will become more intense and the rivalries will grow. I feel that in years to come, these games will help grow our programs.”

“We hope to continue to host these two annual tournaments as well as expand the all-GSU tournaments with additional sports,” concludes Schneider. Adds Brown, “Perimeter campus students really enjoyed playing these tournament games. They are constantly asking what’s next!”
