Men's basketball picks up right where the women left off at William Carey.
The university's high school shootout features more than 150 men's and women's teams from Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama.
William Carey athletic director Steve Knight says the varied competition is good for all teams.
"Well I think the best thing about it is for the high schools to be able to come to one place, and play different levels of competition."
One local coach agrees.
"What William Carey does here with getting these variety of teams that we can see during the summer that we may not see during the year is really good for us," says Petal head basketball coach Kyle Roane.
Roane says summer basketball gives his team a chance to do things that it can't during the regular season.
"It gives us a chance to play different combinations together. It gives us a chance to be little more fundamental."
While the Panthers played three games on Monday, Roane says counting wins and losses isn't an effective way to evaluate his team's performance.
"During the summer, I'll be honest, I'm a coach that doesn't watch the scoreboard as much and doesn't watch our record. I want us to compete each possession."
