Each level of the basketball universe is more pronounced at the Nike Peach Jam.
The event draws the best players, such as the consensus top prep player in the nation, Harry Giles. The top coaches are here too, including Mike Krzyzewski of national champion Duke. Then there are the hoops junkies. Brian Scott and his son, Matt, drive to North Augusta from the Atlanta area to see the future stars of the sport they both love.
Brian Scott, who played at Augusta State, remembers being in awe on his first visit to the Peach Jam about 16 years ago.
