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.
The South Georgia Kings is a scrappy group whom we love to watch. Guards JJ Frazier and Aaron Scott are constantly making something happen. But the Upward Stars controlled from the beginning the heavily anticipated matchup between two of Georgia-Lina's better teams.
The Stars used the same formula they have used during each of the two tournaments they have played at Riverview Park. Upward, the winner of last month's Ice Breaker Invitational improved to 2-0 in the King James Southern Exposure tournament behind unselfish, gritty play. The Stars have more good players in their 10-12 man rotation than any team we've seen. Enjoy the highlights below of this impressive team's second round victory.
