At the conclusion of Day 3 at the 2011 NIKE Peach Jam, four teams remain. We know that we will definitely be crowning a new champion, as the Boston Amateur Basketball Club (BABC) defeated last years winner, Team Takeover (DC), with Iowa State commit Georges Niang (@georgesniang20) leading the way scoring 31 points on an efficient 13-16 shooting.
BABC will face the Oakland Soldiers (CA) who have now won 11 in a row in EYBL competition. The Soldiers won a tough game against the Playaz Basketball Club 79-73, and again were led by the tandem of point guard Dominic Artis (@ALLHAMnoturkey) and combo big man Brandon Ashley (@Easy_Bo)
Memphis YOMCA (TN) advanced to the other semi-final with an overtime victory over the Texas Titans using a balanced attack to overcome a herculean 31 point 10 rebound performance, before fouling out, from standout junior Julius Randle (@J30_RANDLE). YOMCA will face the Georgia Stars who used a big second half to get past the Mac Irvin Fire.

Semi-Final #2 10:30am Oakland Soldiers (CA) vs. BABC (MA)
