EYBL Dallas Stats: 20.2 PPG, 55.8 FG%, 5.2 RPG, 3.2 APG, 1.5 SPG
Team Record: 3-1
There might not be a more underrated point guard in the country than Kyle Sturdivant. The Nike Team Florida floor general went about his usual business in Dallas, steadily leading his team to a great showing behind some impressive individual averages. He's highly efficient with his shot-taking, and does a good job of getting his teammates involved. Perhaps the most overlooked part of Sturdivant's game is his rebounding ability; not many guards average over five rebounds a game. If he continues this type of production, Nike Team Florida is going to win a lot of games in 2018.
EYBL Dallas Stats: 22.7 PPG, 8.3 RPG, 6.3 APG, 3.7 SPG (3 games)
Team Record: 3-1
Tyrese Maxey was sensational during his encore season debut, leading Drive Nation to the highest scoring average on the circuit. His player efficiency rating is tops in the league, and the only knock you could have with him after one session is that Drive lost to their rival Pro Skills. Maxey was a bit shorted due to Mac Irvin's forfeit on Sunday, but his three-game performance was more than good enough to land him on an All-session team. Maxey is one of the most dangerous guards on the circuit, and will continue to put up gaudy numbers in his second EYBL go-round.
EYBL Dallas Stats: Kahlil Whitney: 23.3 PPG, 6.7 RPG (3 games)
Team Record: 2-2
The Kahlil Whitney Experience was in full effect in Dallas, and if anyone that watched left unimpressed, they are certifiably insane. The 6-foot-7 Whitney dazzled in his first three 17U EYBL games, showcasing the ability to score from all over the floor. Like Maxey, Whitney was also hindered by only playing three games. We're choosing not to hold it against him, mainly because Whitney was playing the best basketball of his young life. The swingman has a 7-foot-3 wingspan, and if he's healthy and running, the Fire are more than good enough to make a return to Peach Jam.
EYBL Dallas Stats: Wendell Moore: 17.0 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 3.2 SPG, 2.8 SPG
Team Record: 3-1
Wendell Moore entered the 2018 EYBL as one of the most complete players in the country, and his versatility was on full display in Dallas. Moore led CP3 to three big wins, leading the defending E16 champions against a fairly difficult schedule. Moore is a pleasure to watch, employing a smooth rhythm to his game that allows him to blend in while racking up numbers. His physicality is one of the most impressive aspects of his game, and it's allowed him to be one of the best offensive rebounders through four games (12 OREB). CP3 is going to win a lot of games behind Moore, and he's going to contend for All-EYBL honors with every session stop.
EYBL Dallas Stats: Jason Jitoboh: 15.2 PPG, 71.4 FG%, 7.8 RPG, 2.5 BPG
Team Record: 4-0
In Dallas, Jason Jitoboh announced himself as one of the best big men in the country. The 6-foot-11, 270-pound big man was a monster on both ends of the floor for Woodz Elite in their 4-0 showing. His massive frame allows him to carve out space on offense, and that resulted in Jitoboh being one of the most efficient finishers around the basket in Dallas (71.4 FG%). He's a huge asset defensively, relying on his size, athleticism and shot-blocking ability to lead the best defense in the EYBL (55.3 OPPG). Jitoboh is a big reason why Woodz Elite escaped session one without a loss.
