NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. -- The Peach Jam is one of the travel-team tournaments that is easiest on the eyes. Coaches are taken care of in the hospitality room with fresh peaches, and the play on the court takes care of itself. Many of the best players are on display, and the only thing separating high-profile recruits from high-profile coaches is a few inches of real estate. It’s intense and fun to watch.

It’s also pivotal recruiting turf. What happens here sets the tone for what happens in August and this fall. Coaches want to be seen and they want to see high-level competitiveness. All together it makes for the best AAU tournament in the country on a yearly basis.
