Augusta Basketball Report is broadcasting live at our iHigh Portal from the King James Southern Exposure Tournament in North Augusta, SC. The tournament is noteworthy because it features some of the best AAU teams in the southeast United States. And this is the first of two "evaluation weekends," when college coaches can evaluate high school players during an AAU tournament. In addition to the live streaming broadcast, we are "live tweeting" from our Twitter feed (@AugBball), and we are updating this site with highlights, news, and commentary.
We have many highlights of the Southern Stampede in action at the King James Southern Exposure tournament that we will be sharing soon. This 16u team won all five games in the 17u division against most of the tournament's best teams. And they may be the most talented team we have seen this season. Loaded with length, athleticism, and skill, this team is very dangerous because, in addition to being extremely talented, the players play hard, they play together, and they play smart. We are eager to find out how they perform at the upcoming Boo Williams Nike Invitational in Hampton, Virginia, where for the first time this Spring, the Stampede will compete in the 16u division.
Enjoy the highlights from the Southern Stampede's two weekend victories over the Southern Kings. Our reaction to the play in these clips is that if 6'4" Ahmed Hill (#8), the 6'7" Jakeenan Gant (#7), and the 6'8" Elijah Staley (#9) continue to knock down mid range and long range shots to complement their high flying attack, this team will be extremely difficult to beat. Add the intelligent play and stingy defense from guards Michael Scott (#1) and Marcus Stroman, the sweet shooting touch of Jerad Coleman (#4), and the power game of 6'9" CJ Turmen (#11), and we can only imagine the success this team may have.
