By D1 Circuit Staff

RJ Barrett | UPLAY (CAN)


Games Played: 8 (not eligible for All-EYBL)

Team Record: 3-13

Stats: 28.0 PPG, 10.8 RPG, 3.0 APG

Though he only played in half of his team’s 16 games during the season, Barrett made his mark on the EYBL as perhaps the most lethal scorer, regardless of age group.

Noah Locke | Team Melo (MD)


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 9-7

Stats: 18.2 PPG, 49.5 3PT% (53 3PTM), 3.1 RPG, 1.6 APG, 1.6 SPG

Locke was ridiculously consistent all spring, pacing the surprise team on the circuit while lighting it up from downtown at an insane rate, making almost half of his attempts from downtown.

Jalen Carey | Playaz Club (NJ)


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 9-7

Stats: 18.1 PPG, 44.2 3PT% (38 3PTM), 3.8 RPG, 2.3 APG, 1.1 SPG

Carey brought a veteran presence and obviously go-to option to the Playaz from the start, showing his versatility on the defensive end as well.

Javonte Smart | Houston Hoops (TX)


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 8-8

Stats: 15.1 PPG, 4.2 APG, 3.5 RPG, 1.1 SPG

Smart was always good, sometimes brilliant as the floor general for Houston. He clearly has made great strides with his jumper and his play making is as electric as ever.

Jaylen Hoard | Team CP3 (NC)


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 13-3

Stats: 14.9 PPG, 50.6 FG%, 39.5 3PT%, 71.2 FT%, 6.4 RPG, 1.2 APG

Playing alongside Coby White opened things up for this lengthy forward, but Hoard was a force on the boards and from range which makes CP3’s offense as potent as anyone on the circuit.

Marcus Zegarowski | Expressions Elite (MA)


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 11-5

Stats: 14.8 PPG, 43.3 3PT% (42 3PTM), 3.6 RPG, 3.6 APG, 1.1 SPG

In leading Expressions on their season-ending tear, Zegarowski showed poise and an uncanny ability to make the right play in crunch time, usually nailing key shots himself.

Keion Brooks Jr. | Spiece Indy Heat (IN)


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 7-9

Stats: 18.2 PPG, 49.5 FG%, 72.1 FT%, 6.8 RPG, 1.8 APG

Brooks was the catalyst for Spiece, bringing his knack for scoring at will and a tenacity in the paint for an undersized squad.

Taeshon Cherry | Oakland Soldiers (CA)


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 9-7

Stats: 13.6 PPG, 8.6 RPG, 1.2 BPG

A well-known defensive stopper, Cherry did a little bit of everything for a Soldiers team that desperately needed offense. His season came full circle when the Soldiers went undefeated in LA.

Vernon Carey Jr | Nike Team Florida


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 8-8

Stats: 17.4 PPG, 54.3 FG%, 5.8 RPG, 1.1 APG, 1.1 BPG

Another 2019 stud who proved he was ready for the big stage, Carey filled it up every time he stepped on the floor and showed a nose for the ball that helped him compete on the boards.

Robert Woodard | MEBO Elite (MS)


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 6-10

Stats: 14.4 PPG, 49.4 FG%, 10.2 RPG, 2.2 APG, 1.8 RPG, 1.2 BPG

MEBO struggled most of the season to find its identity and second option on offense, but Woodard was the steady force that kept them competitive.

Louis King | Team Final (PA)


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 7-9

Stats: 18.0 PPG, 82.1 FT%, 6.7 RPG, 1.8 APG, 1.4 SPG

It's unfair to say King played the Robin to Cam Reddish’s Batman, since the versatile forward was more than capable of taking over himself at any moment. He excels at getting to the rim and will kill you at the charity stripe.

Gabe Kalscheur | Howard Pulley Panthers (MN)


Games Played: 15

Team Record: 13-3

Stats: 17.7 PPG, 48.9 FG%, 43.6 3PT% (51 3PTM), 2.2 RPG, 2.0 APG

Kalscheur came into the season as a proven shooter, but he showed he has plenty more to offer by stepping up his game passing and defending the rock. He may be the most important player for Pulley aside from Tre Jones.

Alex Lomax | Team Penny (TN)


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 10-6

Stats: 11.7 PPG, 75.6 FT%, 4.8 RPG, 4.1 APG, 2.2 APG

The quintessential floor leader, Lomax was the leader for Team Penny and has them set for another deep run in July. One of a handful of players you want with the ball in any situation at the end of the game.

Jared Rhoden | NY Lightning (NYC)


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 10-6

Stats: 14.1 PPG, 55.9 FG%, 5.4 RPG

The Lightning had some special wins this season after losing their entire starting lineup from a year ago, and Rhoden is a primary reason why. He never seemed to force anything while leading the team in scoring.

Jalen Smith | Team Takeover (DC)


Games Played: 16

Team Record: 11-5

Stats: 10.9 PPG, 57.4 FG%, 84.1 FT%, 5.6 RPG, 1.0 BPG

Smith really found his stride during the month of May, leading Takeover on a surge that ultimately took them to Peach Jam. A sneaky good shooter who doesn't need to score a lot to get the win.

Tyrese Maxey | RM5 Elite (TX)


Games Played16

Team Record: 9-7

Stats: 15.5 PPG, 3.2 RPG, 3.1 APG, 1.5 SPG

Maxey was a consistent contributor for RM5 in April, but the combo guard blossomed into a star in May. A dangerous passer and slasher with the ball in his hands, Maxey's aggressive mindset turned his season around.

Jalen Lecque | Southern Stampede (GA)


Games Played16

Team Record9-7

Stats: 17.0 PPG, 46.8 FG%, 78 FTM, 3.8 RPG, 1.2 APG

Seeing the opportunity to lead an inexperienced Stampede team, Lecque took his opportunity and ran with it. A lethal scorer off the bounce, the ultra-quick two guard was a matchup nightmare for any opponent thrown his way.
