NIKE EYBL ALL-Indianapolis: Honorable Mention

By D1 Circuit Staff, 05/02/17, 6:30PM EDT


Trey McGowens | Team United (NC)

Session Averages: 17.8 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 3.3 APG, 2.5 SPG

McGowens is one of the few bright spots on a struggling United squad, but they had a highly-competitive session behind their lead guard. The 6-foot-4 guard is up to 17 offers and counting, and should continue to impress in a featured role.

Simi Shittu | CIA Bounce (CAN)

Session Averages: 19.5 PPG, 9.3 RPG, 2.3 APG, 1.3 SPG

At this point, it's a toss up as to whether Shittu or Brazdeikis makes an All-Session team. Both are equally important to Bounce's success, and Shittu makes a certifiably strong case for most versatile player on the circuit.

Robert Woodard | MEBO Elite (MS)

Session Averages: 13.8 PPG, 12.3 RPG, 2.8 APG, 1.5 SPG

Woodard makes a strong case for best rebounding guard on the circuit. He had three games with 10+ rebounds, highlighted by a 10-point, 16-rebound, 4-assist performance versus E1T1. MEBO is making a strong case for the Peach Jam, and Woodard is a big reason why.

Marcus Zegarowski | Expressions Elite (MA)

Session Averages: 16.3 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 4.0 APG, 2.0 SPG

Expressions Elite is by far the most underrated team on the circuit, and Zegarowski is leading them like a veteran. He chips in everywhere on the stat sheet and is their on-court leader. If he keeps up his production, Expressions will be a shoe-in for Peach Jam.

Cole Swider | BABC (MA)

Session Averages: 19.5 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 1.3 APG, 2.0 SPG

Aside from a late-game foul against MEBO, Swider was terrific once again in Indianapolis. He is showing just how dangerous he can be if he's surrounded by quick, talented guards who can get him the ball in the pocket.

Mike Devoe | Nike South Beach (FL)

Session Averages: 17.8 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 4.3 APG

Devoe is a terrific complement to Serrel Smith and Landers Nolley II, and he is a big reason they scored an upset win over CIA Bounce. Devoe can score it with the best of them, and has proven the ability to make his teammates better.

Marvin Bagley III | Nike Phamily (CA)

Session Averages: 28.6 PPG, 16.0 RPG, 2.0 APG, 1.3 SPG, 2.7 BPG (3 games *ineligible for 1/2/3 teams)

Bagley absolutely dominated once again, unfortunately sitting out the Indianapolis finale makes him ineligible to land on an All-Session team. It will be interesting to see if Bagley switches teams now that the Nike Phamily is almost eliminated from Peach Jam contention.

Marcellus Earlington | Playaz Club (NJ)

Session Averages: 19.0 PPG, 57.0 FG%, 7.0 RPG

An undersized power forward, Ellington is a dual-sport athlete (football) that has found his niche on a talented squad. He does a great job of carving out space, and is efficient with his touches. He's a big piece in a thin frontcourt. 

Cormac Ryan | Renaissance (NY)

Session Averages: 19.5 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 2.5 APG, 2.0 SPG

At times, it seems as if Cormac Ryan is running circles around the opposition. The crafty combo guard in sneaky athletic and can score at all three levels. He's only going to get better as he gets more comfortable in the EYBL.

Keion Brooks Jr. | Spiece Indy Heat (IN)

Session Averages: 17.8 PPG, 8.0 RPG

Brooks followed up a terrific EYBL debut in Hampton with another strong performance in Indianapolis. He can score at all three levels and employs a motor that is hard to match. If he keeps it up, Spiece will be a contender.
