NIKE EYBL All-Atlanta: Honorable Mention

Bol Bol | Supreme Elite (CA)


RECORD: 3-1
ATL STATS (3 games): 25.3 PPG, 13.0 RPG, 7.0 RPG, 2.3 APG

Bol Bol would be an automatic on the first-team if he had played all four games. He will have to settle for being one of the strongest regular-season MVP candidates heading into the final session.

Ignas Brazdeikis | CIA Bounce (CAN)


RECORD: 1-3
ATL STATS23.8 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 2.3 RPG

Should he be third team instead of Shittu? Possibly. We’ll be honest, we flipped a coin. Both Brazdeikis and Shittu are absolute studs, and both will need to be on point in Los Angeles in order to clinch a bid to the illustrious Peach Jam.

Tyrese Maxey | RM5 Elite (TX)


RECORD: 3-1
ATL STATS17.8 PPG, 3.3 RPG, 4.8 APG, 1.5 APG

Tyrese Maxey showed out as the top underclassmen in Atlanta, stepping up big time as RM5 was missing some key pieces in their backcourt. One more win and he would have been the third underclassmen on the top three teams.

Alex Lomax | Team Penny (TN)


RECORD: 3-1
ATL STATS16.8 PPG, 6.5 RPG, 2.8 APG, 2.0 SPG

Alex Lomax is arguably the most experienced floor general in the EYBL, and he’s playing like it. Lomax has to be salivating at all of the offensive weapons at his disposal, and his production is only going to improve as he gets more comfortable with his talented peers. Also worth noting - Lomax may be the best rebounding guard on the circuit.

Jontay Porter | MOKAN Elite (KS)


RECORD: 1-3
ATL STATS16.5 PPG, 12.3 RPG, 1.5 APG, 2.0 BPG

Flip the wins with the losses, and Porter would find himself on one of the top three teams. Unfortunately, MOKAN took a few L’s in Atlanta, but Porter is still a sure-fire candidate at Regular Season MVP.

Shareef O'Neal | Cal Supreme


RECORD: 3-1
ATL STATS15.3 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 2.0 APG

Shareef O’Neal narrowly missed the third team, an honor he would have obtained if Supreme held off The Family in their final Atlanta matchup. He displayed a versatile floor game and showed off his improving athleticism. He and Bol Bol are a scary frontcourt duo, and will defend home turf in session four.

Duane Washington | The Family (MI)


RECORD: 3-1
ATL STATS16.3 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 2.3 APG

Duane Washington put The Family on his back in Atlanta, guiding them to three wins including a session-closing upset win over No. 7 California Supreme. If he keeps this up, Detroit’s EYBL representative will certainly be a contender to clinch a Peach Jam berth in Los Angeles.

Ayo Dosunmu | Mac Irvin Fire (IL)


RECORD: 0-4
ATL STATS23.0 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 3.0 APG, 1.5 SPG

The Fire went winless in Atlanta, but Dosonmu continued to rattle off some big numbers. The 6-foot-4 combo guard is an evolving threat from the perimeter, but his bread and butter is driving to the cup. The Fire need a huge fourth session from their talented junior.

Jalen Carey | Playaz Club (NJ)


RECORD: 2-2
ATL STATS19.0 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 3.8 APG

Jalen Carey put together his most consistent session of the circuit, and probably his most versatile. It’s nice to see his assist number come up, an asset that’s helped by the presence of Ja’Quaye James. His playmaking ability is vast, which bodes well for the Playaz as they look to clinch a Peach Jam berth.

Drue Drinnon | Stampede (GA)


RECORD: 3-1
ATL STATS16.5 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 3.5 APG, 1.0 SPG

Drinnon played his tail off in his 2017  EYBL debut. He helped the Stampede land Atlanta’s Best Game after a four-point play at the buzzer, lifting his new squad over previously unbeaten MOKAN Elite. He followed it up with two FT’s with no time on the clock to lift the Stampede over CIA Bounce.
