Motlow State Community College plans to host the 2024 Tennessee Community College Athletic Association (TCCAA) Region VII Basketball Tournament from March 8-12 on the Moore County Campus. The tournament will include men’s and women’s teams from 10 of the 13 community colleges in the state of Tennessee.

Schools visiting Motlow to participate in the tournament include Chattanooga State, Columbia State, Walters State, Volunteer State, Roane State, Southwest Tennessee, Jackson State, Cleveland State, and Dyersburg State. Tickets are $10 per game or $35 for a tournament pass, and children 10 or under are allowed free admission.

“We are excited to host the regional tournament this year. We’ve worked hard to prepare with renovations to the Copperweld Arena, and we are happy to share our new gym with the conference and community. We look forward to hosting hundreds of visitors and partnering with our community to welcome all the guests,” said Dr. Johnson, Executive Vice President for Student Success,

Community colleges in the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) rotate hosting responsibilities for this annual tournament, and Motlow says they are thankful to be able to make this event available to the surrounding communities this year.

“The tournament presents an opportunity to highlight the hard work and dedication of the student-athletes in the TCCAA. This is more than just a competition – it is a showcase of regional pride. We are elated to bring fans, families, and friends together in what will truly be a community event,” added Dr. Chatney Spencer, Tournament Chair.
