Kevin Knox | E1T1 United (FL)


Hampton Statistics (4 games): 22.0 PPG, 8.0 RPG

It may be hard to believe that the best player on one of the league’s hottest teams has been able to fly under the radar, especially averaging better than 20 PPG on the year, but Knox is the type of player who has done just that. There isn’t a ton of emotion or showboating to Knox’s game; he simply goes out and dominates every time he steps out on the floor. Knox is far from a volume scorer and was at his efficient best in Hampton, picking his spots to score and make plays with the patience that has become his trademark. It is only a matter of time before Knox explodes for a monster scoring effort that will make his presence known to  wider audience.

Collin Sexton | Southern Stampede (GA)


Hampton Statistics (4 games): 31.25 PPG, 6.5 RPG, 1.25 APG, 1.25 SPG

Sexton has continued to one-up himself on the way to a massive lead for the league scoring title, this time putting up 30 in all four games in Hampton. The Stampede star improved his shooting percentages across the board, especially from long range where he does a lot of his damage. Not to be considered a one-trick pony, however, Sexton also stepped up his rebounding numbers as well, which was huge in leading the Stampede to two wins and playing Howard Pulley close.

Anthony Gaines | Albany City Rocks (NY)


Hampton Statistics (4 games): 20.5 PPG, 8.75 RPG, 3 APG, 1.5 SPG

With another great all-around session, Gaines has officially shed the “breakout” label and is now a household name as a star in the league. With teammate Andrew Platek struggling to get things going offensively, Gaines’ production became even more important and he responded by increasing his scoring numbers and using his court vision to make his team better. With a motor that never stops and an unrelenting work ethic, Gaines has only just arrived.

Quade Green | PSA Cardinals (NY)


Hampton Statistics (4 games): 13.5 PPG, 3.25 RPG, 8.75 APG, 4.0 SPG

Green continued his torrid playmaking pace in Hampton, finding teammates in transition and the set offense where few others could. In addition to being a magician with the ball in his hands, Green’s ability to harass opposing guards and force turnovers proved to be a game-changing factor in several key moments for PSA. A true leader and winner all season long, Green shows every sign of being continuing to be one of the most important players in the country for his team’s success.

Simi Shittu | CIA Bounce (CAN)


Hampton Statistics (4 games): 19.75 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 2.5 APG, 1.25 SPG

CIA Bounce improved their odds of making the Peach Jam field with a great session in Hampton, and Shittu was a major reason for their improved play. The athletic forward was all over the floor making plays and was able to score seemingly at will. Shittu does a bit of everything for his team, which has plenty of other talent, but he is at his best when he is aggressive on both ends of the floor. Expect more dominant performances from Shittu during session four in Atlanta.
