I had the pleasure of "calling" a special Thursday afternoon Nike EYBL Finals at the Peach Jam pool game alongside an old friend, and the owner of the Triple Threat Skills Academy, Mark Halverson. The game included Team United, based in North Carolina, and featuring many of the southeast's best basketball players, and Team Final of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Although both teams featured exciting and highly talented players, namely Team Final's Rondae Jefferson and Team United's Sindarius Thornwell, Team United's center, Kennedy Meeks, stole the show by displaying an impressive set of post moves as Team United advanced to 1-0 in the opening game of pool play.
