Coby White | Team CP3 (NC)

LA Stats22.8 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 3.8 RPG, 2.0 SPG

Game 126 PTS, 7 REB, 6 AST, 4 STL

Game 215 PTS, 7 REB, 3 AST, STL

Game 329 PTS, 4 REB, 5 AST, 3 STL

Game 421 PTS, 3 AST, 1 REB

While looking at Coby White’s stats, it would appear as if he plays with a scoring mentality first. However, the Team CP3 stud is simply a playmaker in the most traditional sense, and he just happens to be a tremendous natural scoring guard. White can absolutely fill it up in a variety of ways, but he uses his court vision and instincts to get teammates involved at all times. Not to mention, he has proven to be one of the best one-on-one defender on the circuit. Players don’t come with much more upside than White, who is clearly playing the best basketball of his life. White's play earned him LA's Offensive Player of the Session. 

Marcus Zegarowski | Expressions Elite (MA)

LA Stats: 17.8 PPG (21-52 40%), 4.8 RPG, 4.3 APG

Game 1: 9 PTS, 4 REB, 5 AST

Game 2: 20 PTS, 6 REB, 2 AST

Game 3: 27 PTS, 1 REB, 6 AST

Game 4: 15 PTS, 8 REB, 4 AST

Marcus Zegarowski has been consistently solid for Expressions all season, and is a primary reason the New England squad was in Peach Jam contention from Day 1. In Los Angeles, however, a star was born as the floor general was all over the court doing it a bit of everything, including a clutch 20-point outing in a massive win over rival BABC and a sizzling 27-point outing in a win over MEBO Team Hood. Zegarowski led Expressions to a 4-0 showing in Los Angeles, and they should have plenty of momentum heading into the Peach Jam.

Marvin Bagley III | Phoenix Phamily (AZ)

LA Stats27.8 PPG (59 FG%), 15.3 RPG, 3.5 BPG, 1.5 APG

Game 126 PTS, 17 REB, 2 AST, 3 STL, 1 BLK

Game 229 PTS, 18 REB, 1 STL, 6 BLK

Game 320 PTS, 15 REB, 3 REB, 1 STL, 4 BLK

Game 436 PTS, 11 REB, 1 AST, 1 STL, 2 BLK

The numbers Marvin Bagley III put up in Los Angeles are absolutely absurd. The 6-foot-11 junior put up one of the best four-game stretches in league history, putting up averages of 28 points, 15 boards and 3.5 blocks. Once again, Bagley constantly faced double-teams during session four, which make his gaudy numbers that much more impressive. Bagley is truly a joy to watch play basketball, and is miles ahead of most prospects in the country. Most importantly, the Phamily picked up their first two wins of the season, including a win over No. 1 Howard Pulley in the season finale. Will they make Peach Jam? That’s Nike’s call, but the star-power Bagley provides would be the obvious reason why.

Jontay Porter | MOKAN Elite (KS)

LA Stats: 18.3 PPG (47%), 12.3 RPG, 1.8 APG, 1.8 SPG, 1.8 BPG

Game 1: 16 PTS, 9 REB, 2 AST, 5 STL

Game 2: 26 PTS, 16 REB, 1 STL, 2 BLK

Game 3: 15 PTS, 11 REB, 4 AST, 1 STL, 1 BLK

Game 4: 16 PTS, 13 REB, 1 AST, 4 BLK

MOKAN got back to their winning ways in Los Angeles, sandwiching a pair of wins in-between two losses to Boston’s EYB affiliates (BABC & Expressions). Jontay Porter was terrific throughout, showing off his point-forward skills while continuing his domination on the boards. Porter doesn’t come off the floor very often, making him one of the most vital players on any squad on the circuit. He makes a dent in five different statistical categories, and most importantly, makes each and every one of his teammates better when he is at his best. MOKAN is going to be a tough out in North Augusta, especially if Porter plays like he did in LA.

Bol Bol | Supreme Elite (CA)

LA Stats18.0 PPG (31-49 63.3 FG%, 10.3 RPG, 2.5 APG, 5.5 BPG

Game 1: 17 PTS, 11 REB, 4 AST, 7 BLK

Game 2: 21 PTS, 10 REB, 1 AST, 3 BLK

Game 3: 25 PTS, 12 REB, 7 BLK

Game 4: 19 PTS, 8 REB, 5 AST, 5 BLK

As Cal Supreme rolls into Peach Jam as one of the hottest teams in the country, Bol will only see his stock soar in the coming months as he has a chance to showcase his versatile game in front of the best in the industry. He was a savage on the defensive end in LA, proving he is one of the top two way players in any class. The scariest part? Bol hasn't even touched how special he can be. Bol also took home LA's Defensive Player of the Session.
