NIKE EYBL Dallas: All-Breakout Team

By D1 Circuit Staff, 04/25/18, 2:00PM EDT


Collin Moore - Woodz Elite (AR)

EYBL Dallas Stats: 13.2 PPG, 7.5 RPG, 2.2 SPG, 1.8 APG
Team Record: 4-0

Collin Moore stood out all weekend for Woodz Elite. As evidenced by his four-game averages, the junior guard was producing at a high-level on both ends for Woodz and company, helping them to an undefeated showing in Dallas. The 6-foot-4 Moore is ultra-impressive on defense, setting the tone for the rest of his teammates. He averaged a team-high 2.2 steals per game, using his aggressiveness and footwork to stand out defensively. The program formerly-known-as Wings Elite proved they are the real deal in Dallas, and Moore was a big reason why.

Dashawn Davis - NY Lightning

EYBL Dallas Stats: 17.2 PPG, 57.4 FG%, 3.8 RPG, 4.0 APG
Team Record: 4-0

The New York Lightning shocked the EYBL world by upsetting the Bluff City Legends in their 2018 opener, and Davis had a big part in the triumph. The 6-foot-3 combo guard put up 19 points on 8-for-11 shooting, putting constant pressure on the Bluff City backcourt. He saved his best for last, putting up 27 points, three assists and three rebounds in the Lightning's final win in Dallas over CIA Bounce. Davis teams with Posh Alexander on the Lightning and during the high school season with Our Saviour Lutheran, so their chemistry is miles ahead of most grassroots' backcourts. Davis is highly-underrated on the national scene, and with the way he's playing, he has 'high-major' written all over him.

Marcus Tsohonis - Seattle Rotary Style

EYBL Dallas Stats: 16.2 PPG 47.5 FG%, 6.5 RPG, 4.0 APG, 2.2 SPG
Team Record: 3-1

Marcus Tsohonis did not skip a beat in his first action from returning from a broken finger two months ago. The 6-foot-4 junior contributed sparingly for Portland BC in the 2017 EYBL, and he clearly used that experience to his advantage. Tsohonis was everywhere for Rotary, and his versatility bleeds through in his statistical averages. Rotary is looking for their first Peach Jam bid in modern EYBL history, and Tsohonis' continued efficiency will be crucial if they want to make that a reality.

Marsei Caston - E1T1 United (FL)

EYBL Dallas Stats: 16.8 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 2.5 APG 
Team Record: 3-1

Head coach Steve Reece raved about Marsei Caston heading into the season, and one thing is certain; Reece was not lying. His 6-foot-3 junior guard paired perfectly with fellow combo guard Tre Mann. Both guards averaged 16.8 points per game during the first session, with Caston standing out in an aggressive facilitating role. E1T1 is flying a bit under-the-radar, and part of that has to deal with Caston and his evolving talent. If he continues to be a major contributor alongside Mann and CJ Walker, E1T1 will have a chance to match the success they found in the opening session.

Mekhi Long | Boo Williams (VA)

EYBL Dallas Stats: 13.2 PPG, 10.2 RPG, 1.8 APG, 1.5 SPG
Team Record: 2-2

Entering Dallas, Boo Williams (VA) wasn't sure what to expect from their frontcourt productivity. Junior Mekhi Long quickly displayed that his production would be hard to ignore. The 6-foot-7 small forward was a beast on the boards for Boo, utilizing his long frame and constant motor to rack up some impressive rebounding averages. Long fits in perfectly with the rest of the Boo crew, and most of his production is supplied organically, meaning he doesn't need to have a play for him in order to be effective.

Justin Moore - Team Takeover (DC)

EYBL Dallas Stats: 11.8 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 2.2 APG
Team Record: 4-0

Team Takeover (DC) took care of business in Dallas, racking up four impressive wins behind an incredibly balanced lineup. Justin Moore led the team in points, rebounds, and steals per game, displaying elite versatility in Takeover's system. Takeover will need Moore to continue his efficient play, especially his impact on the boards. He's one of the best rebounding guards in the country, utilizing his physical 6-foot-4 frame to bully the opposition. Takeover features a number of players capable of beating you, and Moore completed that job during session one.
