NIKE EYBL Atlanta Defensive POTS: Cole Anthony

By D1 Circuit Staff, 05/16/17, 6:45PM EDT


Not only is Anthony one of the most prolific offensive producers in the EYBL, he cemented his defensive prowess in Atlanta.

The sophomore guard was on-point defensively, averaging 4.5 steals per game over four contests - three wins. PSA once again put forth the best four-game defensive effort across the EYBL, allowing an average of 55.5 points per game.

Anthony ended the session by grabbing two steals in a win over the Oakland Soldiers, one that saw that Soldiers score a season-low 37 points. He locked down the Soldiers backcourt the entire game, leading a group defensive effort that ranks among the best in league history.

The Cardinals are truly a treat to watch defensively, and Anthony has his defensively-minded squad rolling into the final session in Los Angeles.

By the numbers:


Game 1: 6 steals (vs. Tyrese Maxey, Chris Harris)

Game 2: 6 steals (vs. Javonte Smart, Antoine Davis & Greg Williams)

Game 3: 2 steals (vs. Duane Washington, David Dejulius & Rashad Williams)

Game 4: 2 steals (vs. James Akinjo & Kyree Walker)
