Nike EYBL Hampton All-Underclassmen Team

By D1 Circuit Staff, 05/30/18, 10:30PM EDT


Team: CIA Bounce (CAN)
Record: 2-2 (6-10 overall)

EYBL Hampton stats: 22.0 PPG, 59.2 FG%, 5.8 RPG, 2.3 APG, 2.0 SPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 27 PTS (7-9 FG), 4 REB, 3 STL
Game 2: 21 PTS (8-14 FG), 2 REB, 2 AST, STL
Game 3: 16 PTS (6-11 FG), 10 REB, 5 AST, 2 STL
Game 4: 25 PTS (11-20 FG), 7 REB, 2 AST, 2 STL

Addison Patterson made it a clean sweep in Hampton, tallying his fourth consecutive appearance on the All-Underclassmen Team. The 6-foot-7 sophomore scored 89 points on 59.2 percent shooting, showcasing a skillset well-beyond his years. He can score at all three levels, and should only get more refined as he gets stronger. Patterson was the brightest aspect of Bounce's regular season, and shold be one of the best players in the EYBL in 2019.

Cam Thomas

Team: Boo Williams (VA)
Record: 1-3 (7-9 overall)

EYBL Hampton stats: 18.8 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 3.0 APG
Full season stats

Game 1: 19 PTS, 4 REB, 2 AST
Game 2: 12 PTS, 6 REB, 3 AST
Game 3: 13 PTS, 2 REB, 2 AST
Game 4: 31 PTS, 2 REB, 5 AST

Boo Williams fell short of a Peach Jam bid, but it wasn't due to lack of effort from Cam Thomas. The sophomore continued his torrid scoring spree at home in Hampton, averaging 18.8 points and 3.0 assists. Thomas put up 31 points and five assists in the season finale, willing Boo to an overtime showing against Nike Team Florida. The sophomore should skyrocket up the recruiting rankings, and will enter 2019 as one of the top players on the circuit.

Jaden Hardy

Team: LV Prospects
Record: 2-2 (7-9 overall)

EYBL Hampton stats: 16.5 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 1.5 SPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 19 PTS, 4 REB
Game 2: 20 PTS, REB, AST, 2 STL
Game 3: 13 PTS, 6 REB, 2 AST, 2 STL
Game 4: 14 PTS, 10 REB, 2 STL

Jaden Hardy is widely-regarded as the most talented freshman on the circuit, and he lived up to the billing in Hampton. Hardy averaged 16.5 points while playing hard-nosed defense, closing the season out with 14-point, 10-rebound performance. Hardy is a special talent for the Prospects, and the Coronado (NV) high school product should continue to have an electric summer.

Paolo Banchero

Team: Seattle Rotary Style (WA)
Record: 2-2 (10-6 overall)

EYBL Hampton stats: 15.8 PPG, 61.2 FG%, 7.3 RPG, 1.8 APG, 2.0 BPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 13 PTS (2-3 FG, 9-10 FT), 6 REB, AST, 2 BLK
Game 2: 16 PTS (7-11 FG), 7 REB, 4 AST, STL, 2 BLK
Game 3: 21 PTS (7-10 FG), 4 REB, 2 AST, STL, BLK
Game 4: 13 PTS (5-10 FG), 12 REB, 2 STL, 3 BLK

Seattle Rotary is heading to Peach Jam, and with this type of production from Banchero, they figure to be legitimate contenders. Like Hardy, Banchero is regarded as an elite prospect in 2021, and the 6-foot-8 big man has more than held his own on the 17U circuit. Banchero shot 61.2 percent from the floor in Hampton, and is able to produce without having plays drawn for him. Banchero teams up with Rotary star Jaden McDaniels, and the duo should be one of the better frontcourts in North Augusta.

Chris Moore

Team: Woodz Elite (AR)
Record: 3-1 (11-5 overall)

EYBL Hampton stats: 14.0 PPG, 65.0 FG%, 7.0 RPG, 2.0 APG
Full season stats

Game 1: 10 PTS (5-7 FG), 5 REB, AST
Game 2: 12 PTS (6-10 FG), 9 REB, 2 AST
Game 3: 14 PTS (5-9 FG), 4 REB, 2 AST
Game 4: 20 PTS (10-14 FG), 10 REB, 3 AST

Chris Moore played his second session with Woodz' 17U squad, and the 6-foot-6, 220 pound sophomore made a big impact in Hampton. Moore provides Woodz a big, strong, efficient member of the frontcourt, as he shot 65 percent from the floor during session four. Moore saved his best for last, putting up 20 points and 10 rebounds on 10-for-14 shooting in the season finale. It remains to be seen if Moore will be with 17s or 16s at Peach Jam, but either way, he will make a heck of an impact.

Scott Barnes

Team: Nike Team Florida
Record: 2-2 (8-8 overall)

EYBL Hampton stats: 13.3 PPG, 53.5 FG%, 8.5 RPG, 5.5 APG, 3.0 BPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 16 PTS (7-10 FG), 6 AST, 5 REB, 4 BLK
Game 2: 8 PTS (3-6 FG), 7 REB, 8 AST, 2 BLK
Game 3: 8 PTS (4-7 FG), 7 REB, 3 AST, STL, 2 BLK
Game 4: 21 PTS (9-20 FG), 15 REB, 5 AST, 2 STL, 4 BLK

Scott Barnes didn't score as well as he's accustomed to in Hampton, but that's about all that didn't live up to his lofty billing. The top five sophomore rebounded at a high rate while showing off his facilitation abilities, averaging 5.5 assists per game. Barnes came up in the clutch, hitting the game-winning put-back lay-up in NTF's must-win season finale against Boo Williams. Barnes was a menace defensively, averaging 3.0 blocks per game while contesting many other attempts. Barnes is a vital piece to Nike Team Florida's July plans, and he looks to be clicking on all cylinders.
