A couple weeks ago, we got to see the future of college men's basketball and the famous coaches that lead the sport. This weekend, it's deja vu, only with the ladies.

The Nike Nationals have taken over Riverview Park, and this event is extremely important for the coaches who are in attendance.

Women's basketball continues to grow, and just a few years ago events like this didn't exist. Now that they're here, it completely changes the recruiting process, especially for coaches who can choose from all the top prospects.

"That's the beauty of it," said Georgia Head Coach Andy Landers. "You truly are talking about the best players in the country, and you get to see them play head-to-head. So you can get really clear evaluations at events likes this, and it's very helpful."

Saturday was the first day of the four day event. There are teams and players from across the country represented.
