NIKE EYBL All-Atlanta: Third Team

By D1 Circuit Staff, 05/16/18, 9:15PM EDT


Boogie Ellis

Team: Oakland Soldiers (CA)
Record: 2-2

EYBL Atlanta stats: 22.0 PPG, 3.3 RPG, 2.3 APG
Full season stats

Game 1: 20 PTS, 4 REB, 4 AST, STL, BLK
Game 2: 43 PTS, 8 REB, 2 AST, BLK
Game 3: 9 PTS, 2 AST
Game 4: 16 PTS, REB, AST, BLK

Boogie Ellis was cooking all weekend for the Oakland Soldiers, showcasing some major offensive skill that earned him a recent offer from Arizona. Ellis took home Co-Performance of the Session honors, putting up 43 points and eight rebounds in a blowout win over the Nike Phamily. Ellis hit eight three-pointers in that contest and hit 19 for the session, tied with Jaylen Forbes for most in the EYBL. Ellis is a dynamic scoring guard who is getting better with each session, and when combined with the consistency of KJ Martin and Scotty Pippen Jr, the Soldiers should like their chances in Hampton.

Brycen Goodine

Team: BABC (MA)
Record: 1-3

EYBL Atlanta stats: 24.5 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 3.5 APG, 1.8 SPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 18 PTS, 6 REB, 6 AST, 3 STL
Game 2: 21 PTS, 4 REB, AST
Game 3: 28 PTS, 4 REB, 5 AST, 2 STL
Game 4: 31 PTS, 4 REB, 2 AST, 2 STL

Brycen Goodine improved his statistics in each game in Atlanta, finishing the session with a 31-point, 4-rebound performance in a one-point defeat to MOKAN Elite. BABC has gotten everything they expected and more from Goodine, who has proven to be one of the top scoring guards in the junior class. Goodine's numbers indicate exactly what he is; a two-way player who can make plays with the EYBL's best. BABC will need a perfect fourth session to contend for a Peach Jam bid, which means a lot more production from Goodine in Hampton, Virginia next weekend.

Wendell Moore

Team: Team CP3 (NC)
Record: 3-1

EYBL Atlanta stats: 18.0 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 4.0 APG, 2.0 SPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 22 PTS, 5 REB, 5 AST, 2 STL
Game 2: 21 PTS, 10 REB, 5 AST, 2 STL
Game 3: 6 PTS, 5 REB, 4 AST, 2 STL
Game 4: 23 PTS, 5 REB, 2 AST, 2 STL

Wendell Moore finds himself on an All-Session team for the third straight week, as the CP3 swingman has been the model of consistency. CP3 currently sits with a 9-3 record, and that mark would likely be flipped around if Moore was missing from the roster. Aside from his scoring, playmaking and rebounding ability, CP3 relies on Moore to keep the rest of the unit steady. The 6-foot-6 junior is one of the best on-court leaders in the EYBL, and his guidance will be crucial if CP3 intends on competing for a Peach Jam title in July.

Prince Gillam

TeamThe Truth (CA)
Record: 3-1

EYBL Atlanta stats: 18.3 PPG, 10.0 RPG, 2.5 SPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 8 PTS, 4 REB, AST, 2 BLK
Game 2: 16 PTS, 10 REB, 2 STL
Game 3: 27 PTS (10-13 FG), 12 REB, 4 STL, BLK
Game 4: 22 PTS, 14 REB, 2 AST, 4 STL

Prince Gillam made his EYBL debut in Atlanta, and The Truth's new big man did not disappoint. The 6-foot-7 Fresno (CA) product helped lift The Truth (CA) to three wins, easily their most productive session in their first year of 17U EYBL play. Gillam is a big-bodied, highly-skilled forward who excels in the paint. Gillam tallied 36 boards in The Truth's final three games, sandwiching a 27-point, 10-for-13 shooting performance in between. The Truth currently sits with a 4-0 record, and will need a lot more of Gillam's production as they seek a Peach Jam bid in Hampton.

Trayce Jackson-Davis

Team: Indy Heat (IN)
Record: 2-2

EYBL Atlanta stats: 19.5 PPG, 8.3 RPG, 1.5 APG, 2.5 BPG
Full season stats

Game 1: 26 PTS, 10 REB, 2 AST, STL, 3 BLK
Game 2: 23 PTS, 6 REB, AST, STL, 4 BLK
Game 3: 16 PTS, 10 REB, 3 AST, STL, 2 BLK
Game 4: 13 PTS, 7 REB, STL, BLK

Trayce Jackson-Davis was impressive for the Indy Heat during session three, notching two double-doubles while averaging nearly 20 points per game. Jackson-Davis was a hero for the Heat, hitting a game-winning layup to top Pro Skills with one second remaining. This comes one session after Jackson-Davis saved the day with a buzzer-beating three-ball. The 6-foot-9 forward is skilled, smart and clearly clutch- three traits of his game that will be highly valuable to the Heat as the season progresses.

Justin Moore

Team: Team Takeover (DC)
Record: 4-0 (12-0 overall)

EYBL Atlanta stats: 17.6 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 2.0 APG (3 games)
Full season stats

Game 1: 26 PTS, 4 REB, AST, 2 STL, 2 BLK
Game 2: 11 PTS, 5 REB, 3 AST, STL, BLK
Game 3: 16 PTS, 2 REB, 2 AST
Game 4: DNP (rest)

If you're wondering why this list is six players long, it's because we made a "Team Takeover" exception. Due to their season-long domination, Takeover was able to sit their entire starting lineup on Sunday, therefore limiting Justin Moore to three games played. It makes no sense to punish Takeover for being so good that they can rest their players when convenient, so Moore rightfully slips in as the sixth member of this squad. Team Takeover is far and away the best grassroots team in the country, and Moore helps make them tick.
