Story: Paolo Banchero Named to EYBL Dallas All-Underclassmen Team

Paolo Banchero was stellar yet again at EYBL Dallas. The 6-foot-9 sophomore capped off his impressive spring by averaging 23 points and 11 boards over five games while helping lift Seattle rotary to their second consecutive bid to Peach Jam. Banchero notched his second triple-double of the season against Howard Pulley, tallying 25 points, 15 rebounds, and 10 assists in a double-digit win. Simply put, there aren't many players on the circuit quite like Banchero. He can beat you in a variety of ways offensively and his ability to protect the basket is improving with each game. With his presence on the floor, Rotary will be a threat to beat anyone in July.

Scott Barnes - Nightrydas Elite (FL)

Year: 2020
Height: 6-foot-8
Rank: 247 No. 4
Session Record: 3-2

EYBL Dallas Averages:

24.0 PPG, 54.1 FG%, 26-35 FT
9.0 RPG, 7.6 APG, 1.6 BPG

The most productive version of Scott Barnes surfaced at EYBL Dallas, and it was a treat to watch. Barnes averaged 24 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 7.6 assists in five games, operating as a super-skilled point-forward for head coach Boobie Francis and company. Barnes notched a super-impressive triple-double in game three over E1T1, tallying 23 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists while not committing a single turnover.  Barnes was also clutch, evidenced by his buzzer-beating three-pointer to send the Nightrydas into overtime against the Bluff City Legends. Barnes has Peach Jam experience, and if he enters July producing at this rate, then the Nightrydas will be very difficult to beat.

Another session, another dominant set of performances from Pro Skills' star Micah Peavy. The 6-foot-5 junior averaged 24 points and nearly 10 rebounds per game, continuing to prove that has is one of the best rebounding guards on the circuit. Peavy closed the session with three consecutive games grabbing 10 or more rebounds after opening the session with a 33-point, 9-rebound, 3-assist performance in a win over E1T1. Peavy will enter July as one of the most versatile players in the country, and his presence on the floor gives Pro Skills a realistic chance of beating the other 23 Peach Jam qualifiers.

Adam Miller - Mac Irvin Fire (IL)

Year: 2020
Height: 6-foot-3
High School: Morgan Park (IL)
Rank: 247 No. 24
Session Record: 2-3

EYBL Dallas Averages:

29.8 PPG, 43.1 FG%, 27-64 3PT, 18-21 FT
4.6 RPG, 2.6 APG, 1.4 SPG

Adam Miller was solid through the first two EYBL sessions, but lift his game to another level in Dallas. The Mac Irvin Fire lefty was scoring early and often for the Fire and his ability to efficiently share a backcourt with Marcus Watson has been a treat to watch. The Fire has been one of the biggest surprises in the regular season and that was without miller clicking on all cylinders. If he continues this type of production, The Fire will be a difficult out at Peach Jam.
