NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. -- The Nike Elite Youth Basketball League finals at the Peach Jam are arguably the No. 1 basketball event of the spring and summer club circuit. The Peach Jam features the teams with the 24 best records from the four-session Nike EYBL season. Here are some of the top performances from the action of the first full day.
2015, SF, 6-foot-5, 195 pounds
Travel Team: Boo Williams
Clarke is one of the hardest-playing and most active players in the country. His goal is to try harder than his opponent and he is successful in almost every contest. Clarke is tough and scores mostly off defensive effort and garbage. He was the key in his Boo Williams squad's victory over All Ohio Red as he hustled his way to 20 points.
2016, SF, 6-foot-7, 185 pounds
Travel Team: Howard Pulley
Coffey is like a second coming of Tayshaun Prince. He is long, lanky and left handed. Amir is very versatile and contributes in many ways on the court. He had 14 points and 10 rebounds in his team's victory over Chicago's own Mac Irvin Fire.
2015, SG, 6-foot-3, 180 pounds
Travel Team: All Ohio Red
Coleman is one of the best shooters in the 2015 class. He has improved his ability to play point guard throughout the summer and is now a legitimate combo guard. He had his scoring tool working versus BABC (Boston Amateur Basketball Club) to the tune of 17 points as he led his teammates to a hard-fought victory.
2015, C/PF, 6-foot-10, 225 pounds
Travel Team: Team SCAN Cardinals
Bryant is a big, long and skilled post that just keeps getting better and better. He is a consensus top-25 player and had 26 points and 13 rebounds in a victory over Spiece Indy Heat. His team got great performances from Cheick Diallo and Tyus Battle but it was Bryant's scoring and defense down the stretch that were the keys to the win.
2015, PF/SF, 6-foot-8, 225 pounds
Travel Team: Each 1 Teach 1
Ben is the most explosive "big" in the country. In transition he is Lebron-esque with his speed and explosiveness and is virtually impossible to stop. The big lefty had 21 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists in E1T1's win over Chris Paul's CP3 squad. Simmons is a talented player offensively but his passing ability may be his best attribute. It's getting harder to argue with him being the No. 1 prospect in the country.
2015, PF, 6-foot-9, 210 pounds
Travel Team: Spiece Indy Heat
Despite his team's loss to the Team SCAN Cardinals, Davis put on a tremendous performance with 30 points and 8 rebounds before fouling out in front of his future college coach (Tom Izzo). He scored his team's first 12 points mostly on 12- to 17-foot jumpers. Davis is an improving talent and has a chance to make a lot of money in the sport if he continues to improve.
2015, PF/C, 6-foot-8, 265 pounds
Travel Team: Spiece Indy Heat
Swanigan was a monster versus the Team SCAN Cardinals. Despite foul trouble he had 20 points and 9 rebounds including two 3-pointers -- both of which put the game into extra periods. Even though he changed classes this spring, Swanigan is still a top-20 talent.
