2021 Nike Peach Jam: Day 1 Standouts

The Nike Peach Jam is finally upon us, and some of the brightest young stars in the high school game showed out yesterday in the opening- day games.

There were fourteen 20-point games, seven double-doubles, a nine steal game and believe it or not, someone was responsible for almost 40 percent of their team’s scoring in their opening game.

On a team level, we saw one double-digit halftime comeback, two 20-point wins and six teams scoring 80 or more points. Here’s a recap of some of the best performances from day one of the Peach Jam.

Luke Hunger (BABC)24 points & 11 rebounds on 58% shooting
Dorile Jackson (UPlay Canada)25 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assist, 4 steals & 1 TO
Kyle Filipowski (NY Rens)19 points, 11 rebounds, 8 assist & 2 blocks
