More Elite Basketball Talent in Augusta Area

Posted: Updated:

North Augusta, SC (WJBF) -- Another week, another group of talented basketball players in North Augusta. The Nike Nationals have returned to Riverview Park in North Augusta. They are basically the girls basketball version of the Peach Jam.

As usual, the event has attracted many of the nation's top girls basketball players and most of the top coaches as well. That includes longtime Georgia head women's basketball coach Andy Landers who we caught up with at the event Monday. "It's a terrific setting for everyone involved. You're bringing all the best players to the same place which attracts the coaches to the same place. Here in the Augusta area this weekend, there are 3-4 events going on that have attracted players from all over the country. It makes it really easy for us to do our job of evaluating talent," Lander said.

The Nike Nationals run through Wednesday.
