King James Action: WorldWide 15u Guard Play

The 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.

Length and strength inside is coveted at all levels of basketball.  And the college coaches in attendance at the King James Southern Exposure tournament are certainly on the lookout for players who can effectively patrol the paint.  But it is often the guards who can stretch the court and create opportunities off the dribble who make the difference between winning and losing.

The Worldwide Renegades 15u squad has plenty of length and muscle inside.  But the play of guards Terrence Phillips, Ty Hudson, and of Jaylen Brown have impressed us during the first 3 halves of play at this weekend's tournament.  The Rengades are on their way to reaching a 2-0 record early in tournament play, leading SEBL 56-42 late in the second half.  We eagerly await the showdown at 6 P.M. between Worldwide and the King James Shooting Stars (featured here).

But until then, see the video above for a preview of what freshman phenom Luke Kennard and Ohio based Shooting Stars team will contend with later this evening.
