Nike EYBL All-Hampton: Second Team

By D1Circuit, 05/31/18, 4:45PM EDT


Isaac Okoro

Team: AOT Running Rebels (GA)
Record: 3-1 (12-4 overall)

EYBL Hampton stats: 19.8 PPG, 46.8 FG%, 10.5 RPG, 4.0 APG, 2.0 SPG, 1.5 BPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 14 PTS (6-17 FG), 11 REB, 5 AST, 3 STL
Game 2: 14 PTS (6-17 FG), 13 REB, 5 AST, 2 STL, 3 BLK
Game 3: 23 PTS (11-22 FG), 8 REB, 3 AST, STL
Game 4: 28 PTS (11-17 FG), 10 REB, 3 AST, 2 STL, 3 BLK

Isaac Okoro made his case as the most versatile member of the 2019 class in Hampton, displaying a refined floor game that had him consistently impacting five statistical categories. Okoro put up 28 points, 10 rebounds, 3-assist, 3-block, 2-steal game in a massive outing against Drive Nation, putting the finishing touches on a stellar junior regular season. The 6-foot-6 junior needs to work on his shot, but he does everything else at an elite level. Okoro & AOT will be a favorite at Peach Jam, and he's a heavy favorite to land on the regular season all-EYBL team.

Juwan Gary

Team: Team United (NC)
Record: 3-1 (8-8 overall)

EYBL Hampton stats: 20.8 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 1.5 BPG, 1.5 SPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 12 PTS, 7 REB
Game 2: 25 PTS, 4 REB (unofficial)
Game 2: 24 PTS, 2 REB, 3 STL, 2 BLK
Game 3: 22 PTS, 9 REB, 2 AST, STL, BLK

Juwan Gary played admirably this weekend, putting together an outrageously good session after having his teammate pass away Saturday evening. Gary put up three-straight 20-point outings to close the session, including 24 points, three steals and two rebounds in United's Peach Jam clinching win over All Ohio on Sunday morning. Gary's Sunday performance - and all of Team United, for that matter - was one of the most inspirational things we've ever seen in sports. They pulled it together, rallied for a fallen teammate, and Gary put together the finest weekend of his EYBL career.

Rocket Watts

Team: The Family Detroit (MI)
Record: 2-2 (6-10 overall)

EYBL Hampton stats: 26.3 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 3.3 APG, 2.8 SPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 21 PTS, 3 REB, 3 AST, 4 STL
Game 2: 26 PTS, 4 REB, 5 AST, 4 STL
Game 3: 34 PTS, 3 REB, 2 AST, 2 STL
Game 4: 24 PTS, REB, 3 AST, STL

For the second consecutive weekend, Rocket Watts was absolutely cooking for The Family Detroit. Watts put up four consecutive 20-point games, earning two wins while being inches away from a perfect 4-0 weekend. If you need a bucket, Watts will go get it for you. The 6-foot-4 playmaking junior is becoming a better defender and facilitator, but his scoring ability makes him one of the best guard prospects in the country. The Family didn't qualify for Peach Jam, but Watts is going to be a killer in July at the Peach Invitational.

DJ Jeffries

Team: Bluff City Legends
Record: 4-0 (11-5 overall)

EYBL Hampton stats: 19.0 PPG, 58.0 FG%, 5.5 RPG, 1.5 APG
Full season stats

Game 1: 16 PTS (7-13 FG), 7 REB, AST
Game 2: 26 PTS (11-15), 6 REB, 3 AST
Game 3: 15 PTS (5-12 FG), 3 REB, 0 AST
Game 4: 19 PTS (6-10 FG), 6 REB, 2 AST

The Bluff City Legends went 4-0 in Hampton, with DJ Jeffries turning in the best EYBL session of his career. The Kentucky verbal-commit shot 58 percent from the floor, including an 11-for-15 performance in a 26-point win over Seattle Rotary. Jeffries' numbers are somewhat limited by the ridiculous amount of talent in Bluff City's frontcourt, but it's his poise and basketball IQ that sets him apart. He always seems to make the right decision, and is capable of scoring in bunches. Jeffries should have a terrific spring, and after a perfect session, Bluff City will be entering July with a lot of momentum.  

Drew Timme

Team: Drive Nation (TX)
Record: 2-2 (11-5 overall)

EYBL Hampton stats: 15.5 PPG, 68.5 FG%, 10.0 RPG, 3.0 APG, 1.8 BPG, 1.3 SPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 12 PTS (6-10 FG), 12 REB, 3 AST, 2 STL, BLK
Game 2: 20 PTS (7-10 FG), 11 REB, 2 AST, STL, 5 BLK
Game 3: 9 PTS (3-4 FG), 3 REB, 3 AST, 2 STL
Game 4: 21 PTS (8-11 FG), 11 REB, 4 AST, BLK

Drew Timme has been on the cusp of an All-Session team all season, and the fourth time was a charm for the Drive Nation junior. Timme shot an absurd 68.5 percent from the floor in Hampton, leading the entire league. Timme closed out his season in style, recording 21 points (8-11 FG), 11 rebounds and four assists in an upset win over No. 2 AOT (GA). Drive Nation loves to get up and down the floor, a pace of play that fits Timme's playing style perfectly. Timme is one of the best passing big men on the circuit, and he'll be on full display in July as Drive Nation looks to make a splash in their first Peach Jam.
