AAU Basketball Spotlight: South Mississippi Elite

HATTISBURG, MS — The Gulf Coast always great AAU basketball organizations.  Year after year, these organizations continue to impress scouts and its competition.  There is one organization out of Mississippi that hopes to continue to live up to a legacy of great basketball teams and coaches.  The South Mississippi Elite (SME) Basketball Program was started by Coach Burnell Wesco in 2007, who wanted to give youth that desired to learn the game a venue to grow and develop, laying a foundation for their athletes to excel in high school and college. The SME basketball program currently consists of five teams of players from South Mississippi, ages 12-17.

This season looks to be another great opportunity to showcase the talent and the depth of the South Mississippi Elite.  The SME basketball team functions as a NCAA-certified summer event under the NCAA Coaches’ Approval Program and as a non-profit organization.

A few of the South Mississippi Elite players have helped their high school teams win big, and are ready to take on any challenge in the AAU.  11 of their players will be competing in the Mississippi High School basketball playoffs.  College representatives from Mississippi State, McNeese State, Mississippi  Valley State, Miami, Kansas State, Tulane, Southern Mississippi,  and Southern Illinois University have scouted some of their athletes.

Please feel free to contact Burnell Wesco via email at [email protected]  if you should have any questions about South Mississippi Elite.
