Last year, in his second EYBL season, Cole Anthony earned Regular Season Defensive Player of the Year.

Earlier this season, he won Offensive Player of the Session.

After Hampton, he can call himself Most Valuable Player.

Anthony dazzled in Hampton, averaging a career-high session high 31 points per game. Anthony also grabbed 8.8 boards per game, and shot 50 percent from behind the arc. His command for the game was impeccable, and he doubled down by playing some of the EYBL's best on-ball defense.

PSA Cardinals' Head coach and Director Munch Williams, Cole head coach for the past three seasons, didn't mince words.

"Cole is the most productive player in the country."

After the fourth session, that comment nearly impossible to argue. Anthony is a three-year EYBL veteran, and his ability to navigate through a defense is surgical. The improvement in his jump shot has opened up the rest of his game, and he's maintained his composure through an up-and-down year like a seasoned veteran

Anthony finished the season with averages of 26.9 points. 7.6 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.4 steals per game, numbers that should land him right atop the Most Valuable Player race.

Expect Anthony to make a ton of noise in July, and to continue putting up gaudy numbers.
