Discover Aiken: Peach Jam draws nation’s best
Each year Nike and some of the nation’s best high school basketball players come to town for Peach Jam, the championship of the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League.
The event, held at North Augusta’s recently expanded Riverview Park Activities Center, features future NBA Stars on the court and current NBA stars on the sidelines and in the bleachers.
It’s also a chance to see all of the NCAA’s big-name coaches in one place. Each year, the event seems to grow in celebrity status. The 2018 event featured appearances from NBA stars Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, DeMarcus Cousins, Victor Oladipo and NBA legends Scottie Pippen and John Stockton.
