Morgantown Jammin'

Hundreds upon hundreds of high school players have descended upon Morgantown once again looking to impress collegiate coaches at the annual Triple S Harley Davidson JamFest AAU Tournament.

The event got underway on Saturday with games being played all over Morgantown on the West Virginia University Campus, as well as area high schools and middle schools. The WVU Student Recreation Center was packed to the gills with players, their families, and coaches from all over North America.

Teams traveled to the event from as far away as Alaska, Montreal, and California. College coaches traveled from similar locales looking for up and coming prospects.

Among the many coaches in attendance is West Virginia's Bob Huggins, who is at the event for the first time as head coach for his alma mater. Last summer, Huggins attended with his staff from Kansas State. Former Mountaineer assistant coaches such as Chris Cheeks (now with UNC-Charlotte) and Jerry Dunn (Michigan) are also back in Morgantown for the weekend.

Several high-profile players are also taking part in JamFest. Terrelle Pryor, the two-sport standout from Jeanette, Pa., is playing with Team ADIDAS. Pryor played earlier today, and will take the court again this evening at 9:10 at the Rec Center. Pryor's normal AAU team -- the Pittsburgh Jots -- is not attending this year's JamFest.

Class of 2010 standout Noah Cottrill (Poca, W.Va.) is playing for the West Virginia Swoosh in the U-16 division. Cottrill has already given his verbal committment to West Virginia, despite still having three seasons of high school eligibility remaining.

Action continues Saturday night, and will pick up again on Sunday afternoon. will have lots more from JamFest, including photo galleries and player interviews.
