All Peach Jam team

With four games going on at all times inside one building, the EYBL Finals at the Nike Peach Jam is a dream come true for college basketball coaches, fans, and would be talent evaluators everywhere.  The only unfortunate part is the inability for any one person to see every player an equal amount of time.  Given that constraint, a starting five must be picked, no matter how difficult it may be to leave off certain players.  Without further adieu, here we go: Continue reading

N. AUGUSTA, S.C. – When BYU lost Jimmer Fredette to the NBA Draft last month conventional wisdom said that it would take years to replace the All-American in Provo.

Well it’s possible that help may be on the way sooner rather than later.

Jabari Parker, an admitted follower of the Mormon faith who also just happens to be one of the top players in the Class of 2013, is giving serious consideration to becoming a Cougar. Continue reading

Coach X was a camp counselor at the LeBron James Skills Academy from start to finish and spent time with the 80 players at the Nike event more than anyone in the media. He worked with the players in drills, coached in the games and picked their brains when the cameras were gone and the throng of reporters were not in the picture. Here are his thoughts on the wings that stood out to him. Continue reading

#Dunkage: Jabari Parker

13 May

Do you know the name Jabari Parker? Apparently you should. He is the newly crowned No. 1 player in the class of 2013. The 6-foot-7 forward from Chicago (Ill.) Chicago sits atop the freshest rankings from Scout.com.

From what I have seen (and only from tape), I like Aaron Gordon from California (MUST WATCH HIGHLIGHTS). He’s a cut above the rest when it comes to athleticism. Being 6-foot-7 is what probably has him slotted at No. 6 overall. From a long term perspective, Nerlens Noel could be the No. 1 guy a year from now. He’s 6-foot-10, from Everett (Mass.) High School and was great this spring, according to the .com analysts.

Still plenty of time for these young guys to play it out. Until then, enjoy Parker ruining a poor tall kid’s weekend in Fort Wayne, Indiana from last week.
