The Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) has released the schedule & team listing for 2017, and there has been some shakeup across the board.
Hampton (VA) will host the league opener, replacing Brooklyn (NY) as the first session. Brooklyn has been replaced completely, as the EYBL will now head out west to Los Angeles (CA) for the league's final session.
Indianapolis (IN) & Atlanta (GA) will retain their sessions, as both events were big hits on the 2016 circuit.
In the full team listing below, you will notice a few familiar faces, a few brand new faces - and a name change.
Playground Elite (WI) will return to 17U after sitting out 2016, and they should bring a talented squad to the circuit. Nike Team Florida is also back after missing the last two EYBL seasons, bringing with them talented sophomores Vernon Carey & Balsa Koprivica.
Four programs - Team Melo (MD), Mississippi Express, Portland Basketball Club (OR) and UPlay Canada - will all make their 17U debut in 2017.
Melo solidified their spot in the field after a very strong showing at July's The 8, while The Express, PBC and UPlay all enter after very strong seasons in the 2016 16U EYBL.
The St. Louis Eagles remain in the field, and have changed their 17U team name to Bradley Beal Elite.
Team Portis Wings (AR), The Challenge (AL), Elfrid Payton Elite (LA), Team Griffin (OK), King James (OH), & We All Can Go (TN) will not retain their spot on the 17U circuit.
