ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
A youth basketball needs donations to help them travel to a national tournament.
The Albany Elite Tigers are the top-ranked Georgia team in the Youth Basketball of America League. They're playing in the state tournament in Atlanta this weekend. Next weekend, they'll be in New Orleans for a tournament featuring 90 teams from around the country.
"This group has been together about four years. They do community service. So they don't just excel on the court they excel in the classroom as well. A lot of my guys are honor roll students," said Albany Elite Tigers Coach Earnest Brown.
