After an impressive week in North Augusta, S.C., at the Nike Peach Jam, Jarnell Stokes and 17-U YOMCA lost in the title game to Nerlens Noel-led BABC. Still, YOMCA had plenty to be proud of.

After winning the Real Deal on the Rock and having a successful showing at the Dallas EYBL session, Jarnell Stokes and Memphis YOMCA took to the Peach Jam for a chance at another title.

The 16-Us, with the help of the likes of East High's Nick King, won the championship over the CP3 All-Stars on a last second lob.

The 17s, however, wouldn't be so lucky.

YOMCA, which didn't lose a game in the Peach Jam until the championship, fell to BABC, 84-67.

Earlier this year at the Dallas EYBL session, the YOMCA 17s edged a Nerlens Noel-less BABC by three points.

TigerAutority will have more YOMCA coverage next week as they return from the tournament.
