Joel Berry, Theo Pinson Combined for 45 Points in Nike Peach Jam

Joel Berry and Theo Pinson may be future teammates come 2014 at the University of North Carolina but this weekend they were foes on the basketball court at the Nike Peach Jam.

Combined both future Tar Heels, Berry and Pinson. put up forty-five points. However Berry’s efforts helped lead his team over Pinson’s CP3 all-star team (6-2) in the Nike Peach Jam finals.

Berry is currently teammates with future Duke Blue Devil Grayson Allen on the E1T1 all-star team (8-0) and they both combined scored just thirty-eight points.

Alone, Berry scored twenty-two points with eight assists and four turnovers. He averaged 13.4 points with 7.6 assits through out the tournament.

Theo Pinson edged his future UNC teammate by a point putting him twenty-three points and nine rebounds in the Nike Peach Jam finals. Pinson averaged 17.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2 blocks in the tournament.

Berry and Pinson will join Justin Jackson in just over a year at Chapel Hill making up the 2014 basketball recruiting class for Roy Williams. This is poised to be one of the best recruiting classes for UNC since the arrival of Harrison Barnes and friends in 2010. Currently the three future Heels have Coach Williams sitting with the top recruiting class for 2014, but Williams sure would love to add another piece or two to the puzzle eventually.
