This weekend at DME Academy in Daytona, the SIAA season will officially launch.

10 teams (West Oaks, Superior Collegiate, Inspire Prep, DME, Oldsmar Christian, Potter’s House, The Rock, Downey Christian, Victory Rock and Central Pointe) will each play two games apiece between Friday and Saturday.

Expect plenty of hard-fought basketball in Daytona. The SIAA is deep this season with all the transfers that have come in. Superior Collegiate vs. Potter’s House on Friday is going to be a fun one while the last two games on Saturday should be scrappy between The Rock and Victory Rock and then Central Pointe and West Oaks.
