    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The list of players from each institution has been finalized in anticipation of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Top 50 Basketball Camp, which will take place, July 20-22 at the Clark Atlanta University Center in Atlanta, GA.

    The NBPA, in conjunction with the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC), and the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) will hold the inaugural camp, which will feature 25 of the best players from each conference.

    Among those Southwestern Athletic Conference players selected from each school include TSU's Demontrae Jefferson and Trayvon Reed.

    The list of potential coaches for the event with a NBA playing career background includes New York Knicks forward Kyle O'Quinn (Norfolk State alum), Philadelphia 76ers forward Robert Covington (Tennessee State alum), Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors (Atlanta native), former Atlanta Hawk guard Gary Neal, Chicago Bulls guard Anthony Morrow, Utah Jazz guard Shelvin Mack and retired 12-year NBA veteran George Lynch.
