The leader of the championship-winning club, Briscoe ended his third year in the EYBL with style. He was a top-five player statistically throughout 2014, leading a young a backcourt full of underclassmen. Leading Jimmy Salmon's club to their first EYBL Peach Jam title gives him his own spot in Playaz Basketball history.
Wow. That's all that has to be said about Kevaughn Allen in North Augusta. The softspoken Florida-commit did his talking on the court, leading Team Penny's backcourt in scoring. He shot well from three and excelled, as usual, in transition, showing off his ungodly-leaping ability on several huge dunks. Combine that with a trememndous defensive mindset, and Allen is one of the most complete guards in 2015.
This could just as easily be Dedric, but we gave KJ the nod due to his senior status and his effectiveness and overall leadership in the championship game. KJ was extremely efficient in pool play, showing off his elite slashing ability and nonstop motor. His passion for the game was evident in the championship game's final moments, having to lose in such a difficult way. Memphis is getting a potential hometown-hero, and one of the best to do it in the EYBL.
Chris Clarke is the main reason that his Boo Williams made the final four. His ability to impact a game in so many ways is his calling card, and he took his scoring ability to the next level in North Augusta. At 6-foot-6, Clarke combines his height with his long arms to create mismatches on both ends of the floor. He's probably the best rebounder for a kid his size in the entire country, and he did not disappoint in his seven Peach Jam games.
The Titans big man separated himself like no other in his six Peach Jam games. He made his claim as the most offensively-gifted big man in the country, posting 19.2 points per game with efficiency. He faced several different defenses in pool play, displaying the ability to score against different defensive looks. It is truly astonishing that he performed this well after having to sit out the entire high school season. Whoever lands his services will get a program-changing big man.
