NIKE EYBL All-Atlanta: Second Team

By D1 Circuit Staff, 05/16/18, 10:00PM EDT


Cam Thomas

Team: Boo Williams (VA)
Record: 3-1 (6-6 overall)

EYBL Atlanta stats: 29.5 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 2.0 APG
Full season stats

Game 1: 37 PTS, 3 REB. 2 AST
Game 2: 14 PTS, 4 REB, 4 AST, 2 STL
Game 3: 37 PTS, 3 REB, AST, 2 STL
Game 4: 30 PTS, REB, AST

Cam Thomas torched the nets in Atlanta, guiding Boo Williams to three wins behind three 30-point performances. It's hard to say where Boo would be without their scoring guard, as the 6-foot-4 sophomore didn't receive much offensive help from his teammates. Thomas went 43-for-46 from the free throw line, good for 94%. Thomas saved Boo's season in Atlanta, and the 6-6 squad will look to punch their Peach Jam bid while defending home turf during session four. If Thomas continues to produce at this rate offensively, Boo should have nothing to worry about.

Isaac Okoro

Team: AOT Running Rebels (GA)
Record: 4-0 (10-2 overall)

EYBL Atlanta stats: 18.3 PPG, 7.5 RPG, 4.3 APG, 1.8 BPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 22 PTS, 11 REB, 3 AST, BLK
Game 2: 23 PTS, 9 REB, 6 AST, 2 BLK
Game 3: 21 PTS, 4 REB, 4 AST, 2 BLK 
Game 4: 7 PTS, 6 REB, 4 AST, 2 BLK

Isaac Okoro was his normal high-productive self in Atlanta, showcasing one of the most refined floor games in the EYBL. Okoro can score at an elite level, but it’s his passing and playmaking ability that stood out during session three. AOT holds a 10-2 record through three sessions, setting them up as one of early favorites for the Peach Jam crown. Okoro is a big reason that success has occurred for AOT during the first EYBL season, and they’ll need him to remain hungry and healthy as the season progresses into July.

Rocket Watts

Team: The Family Detroit (MI)
Record: 1-3 (4-8 overall)

EYBL Atlanta stats: 29.8 PPG, 48.6 FG%, 4.0 RPG, 2.5 APG, 1.8 SPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 28 PTS, 5 REB, 2 AST, STL
Game 2: 12 PTS, 5 REB, AST, 2 STL
Game 3: 36 PTS, 3 REB, AST, 2 STL
Game 4: 43 PTS, 3 REB, 2 AST, 2 STL

It's a session full of accolades for Rocket Watts, who finds himself on Atlanta's Second Team after taking home Offensive Player of the Session and Co-Performance of the session. Simply put, Watts was electric offensively in Atlanta, and no one really had an answer for his arsenal. The most impressive aspect of Watts' production was his efficiency; the 6-foot-2 guard shot 24-for-26 from the free throw line, and hit over 47.7 percent of his three-pointers.

Jaylen Forbes

TeamMEBO Elite (MS)
Record: 2-2 (3-9 overall)

EYBL Atlanta stats: 25.8 PPG, 19 3PTM, 7.5 RPG, 1.0 APG
Full season stats

Game 1: 28 PTS, 13 REB, AST
Game 2: 17 PTS, 4 REB, 2 AST
Game 3: 21 PTS, 6 REB, 0 AST
Game 4: 37 PTS, 7 REB, 1 AST

Jaylen Forbes had himself a weekend. The 6-foot-5 scoring swingman caught fire early, putting up 28 points and 13 rebounds in a high-scoring affair against CIA Bounce. He ended the session with a 37-point, 7-rebound performance, hitting a whopping 19 three-pointers in MEBO's four games. Forbes' performances resulted in two wins for MEBO, doubling their win total for the rest of the year. Forbes has used the 2018 EYBL regular season to turn into a certified high-major recruit, and one of the best bucket-getters in the country.

Keion Brooks Jr

Team: Indy Heat (IN)
Record: 2-2 (7-5 overall)

EYBL Atlanta stats: 25.5 PPG, 10.5 RPG, 1.8 APG, 1.8 BPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 26 PTS, 8 REB, 3 AST, STL, 2 BLK
Game 2: 21 PTS, 12 REB, 4 AST, BLK
Game 3: 21 PTS, 7 REB, STL, BLK
Game 4: 34 PTS, 15 REB, STL, 3 BLK

Keion Brooks continued his tear through the 2018 EYBL, averaging a double-double in four Atlanta matchups. Brooks pairs his size and athleticism with an elite basketball IQ, traits that are easily evidenced when watching him play. Brooks played his best game in the session finale, racking up 34 points and 15 rebounds in an overtime loss to the Soldiers. Brooks is assisted in the frontcourt by fellow junior and Third Team All-Atlanta selection Trayce Jackson-Davis. They form a dynamic duo that has and will continue to give the opposition fits.
