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.
Flat Elite, a team consisting of many of the Augusta/North Augusta area's better players (see our preseason preview of the team), have had a fine start to the Spring/Summer AAU season. After winning its pool in the Ice Breaker Invitational with a hard fought win over the formidable Southern Stampede 16u team, Flat Elite opened play in the King James Southern Exposure tournament with a loss at the buzzer. But the team bounced back Saturday morning with an impressive win and we are currently watching the team battle the NC Courage for the right to advance to 2-1. We will provide an update to Flat Elite's progress in its third game very soon!
