EYBL All-Indianapolis: Third Team

By D1 Circuit Staff, 04/28/16, 3:45PM EDT


Rayshaun Hammonds | Alabama Challenge

Indianapolis statistics (4 games): 22.0 PPG, 57.4 FG%, 9.8 RPG, 2.5 SPG, 1.5 BPG

A stat-stuffer in every respect, Hammonds has a unique skillset that has seen him blossom into one of the most versatile players in the country. A point-forward, Hammonds doesn’t need to score a lot to have a big impact on a game, and possesses a high basketball IQ. That being said, he was extremely efficient scoring the rock in Indy, posting back-to-back games of 25+ points while connecting on two thirds of his shots along the way. This young man will get better as the summer wears on, but he's been plenty impressive already, as he's the only EYBL player in the top 15 of points, rebounds and steals. 

Terrell Brown | BABC (MA)

Indianapolis statistics (4 games): 15.5 PPG, 52.5 FG%, 8.0 RPG, 3.0 BPG

Brown has been huge for BABC as they replace several stud players from last year’s squad, including Miami commit Bruce Brown. A fantastic two-way player, Brown displayed all aspects of his game in Indy, notching a double-double and averaging three blocks over the four games. Though he isn’t a flashy player, Brown has been just as good as any other star on the circuit so far, and as BABC finds their identity, they will look to their veteran big man to lead the charge. Brown is a staple of the EYBL, contributing on the EYBL circuit for the past four seasons dating back to his freshman year.

Mitchell Robinson | Pro Skills (TX)

Indianapolis statistics (4 games): 13.5 PPG, 68.8 FG%, 11.0 RPG, 4.8 BPG

The league’s best defensive player through the halfway mark of the regular season, Robinson stepped up his game on the offensive side of the ball in Indy as well. Posting a double-double in every game, Robinson was money from around the rim all weekend long and finished several fast breaks that he had started with blocks at one end with flushes at the other. Nearly five blocks per game? No way he wasn’t finding his way onto one of these teams.

Anthony Gaines | Albany City Rocks (NY)

Indianapolis statistics (4 games): 17.3 PPG, 53.8 FG%, 11.5 RPG, 1.5 APG

Gaines continued to impress with his all-around game and workmanlike mentality in the paint, which has made City Rocks one of the most consistent teams on the circuit thus far. Gaines had the ball in his hands even more in Indy than in NYC, which allowed him to show off some ballhandling skills as he took taller defenders to the rim and posted up unassuming forwards with ease. Working with fellow stud Andrew Platek, Gaines will keep shining and the duo should make City Rocks a team to beat throughout the year.

Marvin Bagley III | Phoenix Phamily (AZ)

Indianapolis statistics (4 games): 20.5 PPG, 42.2 FG%, 9.8 RPG, 2.0 BPG

Bagley built on a first weekend that served as his re-introduction to the world and competitive hoops with a strong weekend in Indy. Though his overall shooting took a step back, he looked much more comfortable crashing the boards and in the post, all while his Phamily squad showed improvement across the board. As he gets back into his groove, Bagley could start putting up some monster double-doubles with more long-range shooting and one-on-one plays Bagley is the most highly-touted underclassmen in the EYBL, and he’s a candidate for this list every session.
