Elijah Gonzales - Portland BC (OR)


LA Stats15.0 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 5.3 APG, 3.4 SPG

The Portland BC floor general continued his consistent play by doing a little bit of everything, showing off his quick hands with a session-leading 3.4 SPG. More wins and he definitely has a spot on an all-session team.

Tyrese Maxey - RM5 Elite (TX)


LA Stats: 14.0 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 4.5  APG, 1.8 SPG

Maxey, who busted out in Atlanta, is now the go-to playmaker for RM5, and he was aggressive and smooth in equal measure while putting up some great assist numbers.

Robert Woodard - MEBO Team Hood (MS)


LA Stats: 60% FG, 16.0 PPG, 8.8 RPG, 2.5  APG, 2.5 BPG

A model of consistency, Woodard has been a double-double threat all spring and continued that trend while showing off his ability to fill a stat sheet.

Vernon Carey Jr. - Nike Team Florida (FL)


LA Stats15.5 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 2.8 APG, 1.0 SPG

The explosive sophomore continued his scoring tear on the West Coast, leading Team Florida once again and proving he can excel at the highest level.

Damezi Anderson - Nike MeanStreets (IL)


LA Stats: 56% FG, 17.0 PPG, 5.0 RPG

Anderson was big time against in-state rival Mac Irvin, and alongside recent newcomer Darius Bazley helps form a great dual-threat forward combo.

Taeshon Cherry - Oakland Soldiers (CA)


LA Stats: 11.5 PPG, 9.8 RPG, 1.5 APG, 2.0 BPG

The Soldiers have come back from some slumps over the course of the season to become one of the most dangerous teams entering PJ, and this young man is a primary reason why. Cherry is always a threat for a double-double and has made the Soldiers into a contender.

Tyler Herro - Playground Elite (WI)


LA Stats: 17.0 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 3.8 APG, 1.5 SPG

Herro was brilliant while putting Playground on his back during session four, resulting in a huge season-closing win over NY Lightning. Herro can score with the best of them, and it's a shame he won't get to show it off at Peach Jam.

Kamaka Hepa - Portland BC (OR)


LA Stats: 18.0 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 1.8 APG, 2.3 BPG

Another Portland BC playmaker, Hepa is one of the best two-way bigs on the circuit and he proved why with some huge performances in LA. The PBC big man knocked down 17 three-balls out west.

Ignas Brazdeikis - CIA Bounce (CAN)


LA Stats: 20.0 PPG, 6.5 RPG, 2.5 APG

While teammate Simi Shittu had some fantastic scoring games, Brazdeikis is the steady presence who can play inside and on the wing with equal effectiveness.

David DeJulius - The Family Detroit (MI)


LA Stats: 15.3 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 4.8 APG

David DeJulius has flown under-the-radar all season, but if he can make some noise in Peach Jam and keep his stats up, people will start to take notice. The Family sits firmly on the Peach Jam bubble.

Cam Reddish - Team Final (PA)


LA Stats: 20.5 PPG, 9.8 RPG, 3.5 APG, 1.2 SPG

Another weekend, another great performance from the Team Final star, but his team sunk to even lower depths by going winless in LA. They have hopes for a Peach Jam at-large bid, but no guarantees for Philadelphia's EYB representative.

Michael Devoe - Nike South Beach (FL)


LA Stats: 18.0 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 5.3 APG, 1.2 SPG

Devoe has turned himself into quite the shooter, and he has also gotten used to playing on the ball and running the point. He has a few stellar performances to close out the season in LA which warrants a spot on this list.
