We are very excited to bring our viewers live broadcasting and highlights from the best basketball players in the country during the upcoming Nike EYBL Finals at the Peach Jam and the Peach State Invitational. We will broadcast every "Peach Jam" game at iHigh.com/augustabasketball. And we will "live tweet" (@AugBball) the Peach Jam and Peach State games, providing real time highlights and analysis.
During the past few days, and throughout the Spring and Summer, we have flooded this site (and our Twitter feed) with video footage of many of the teams that will visit the Augusta/North Augusta/Aiken area Wednesday, July 18, through Sunday, July 22. Tonight we share video footage of two North Carolina based Peach Jam participants with whom we became familiar during 6thmanbasketball.com 's Queen City Showcase in Concord, North Carolina: The CP3 All Stars and Team United.
Team United played one of its Queen City games without standouts Sindarius Thornwell, Kennedy Meeks, and Matt Howard. But Team United's capable guards played impressively, despite the trio's absence, in an impressive victory against the formidable Upward Stars. We highlight Team United's guards here:
And earlier in the event, we released this video, which features Meeks and Howard:
And now it is time to have a little fun. While court side in Concord, some fans got a glimpse of a piece of footage we have stored from Team United's Sindarius Thornwell's junior season at Lancaster High School. Once word got out about the clip, we rewinded and played it dozens of times for interested fans. So we show it here:
Now we move to the CP3 All Stars. Our Twitter followers (follow us at @AugBball) may have seen the videos we have released featuring the CP3 16u and 17u teams in games against the Upward Stars. But we present them here to readers of this blog.
