Nike EYBL Los Angeles - Day Two Standouts

Posted on 31. May, 2010 by Nolan Shulman in High School, Tournaments


After an exciting start to session #3 of the EYBL yesterday, today was even better.  We were witness to buzzer beaters, guys competing, rowdy crowds, and guys getting into it.  It's the way the AAU circuit is supposed to be. 



Here's a look at who stood out !!!!!




Antony Davis, Meanstreets (6-10, 2011) PF

An absolute freak athlete, Davis used his length and energy to dominate the boards.   Even when Davis isn't in sound position, he uses his incredible wingspan to recover and get it done anyways.  He demonstrated a good face up game, squaring himself up to become a triple threat with the basketball.  He made two mid range jumpers and demonstrated an ability to take his opponent off the bounce.  Defensively he protected the rim and showed outstanding lateral foot speed.  He's been hyped up big time of late and all I can say is I'm a big time believer.  I'm glad I was able to take in Davis's game in the morning cause he apparently got hurt and didn't play the rest of the day.  From my understanding it's nothing serious. 

Nick Johnson, Oakland Soldiers (6-4, 2011) SG

While Jabari Brown has generated a variety of the buzz throughout the summer, it was Nick Johnson who did work today vs. Boo Williams.  He made a variety of jump shots both mid range and from deep, played outstanding defense, and made big shots when the Soldiers needed a lift.  Playing at Findlay has helped Nick improve in every facet of his game; most notably playing with intensity at all times. 

Kyle Anderson, Playaz basketball (6-8, 2012) PG-SF

I watched Kyle play twice today and both games he was extremely efficient and effective.  In game one he got the best of a matchup with all-world power forward Quincy Miller.  He plays with poise, has a sneaky good dribble drive game, makes mid range shots, and rarely if ever turns the ball over.  Kyle has elite level size for a point guard and seems to get better and better everytime I see him.  He's a terrific defender, a coaches son, and most importantly, a winner !!!

Myles Mack, Playaz Basketball (5-9, 2011) SG

Myles was superb today both times I saw him.  He made a high percentage of his three's, took care of the basketball, and played excellent on ball defense.  He showed an improved ability to run set plays, created opportunities for his teammates in the paint, and played with passion.  He may be a 5-9 shooting guard, but he's going to make an impact at a high major program.  He gets it done vs. superior talent and does so on a winning team.   


Jernell Stokes, Memphis YOMC (6-6, 2012) PF

Stokes looks more like a defensive end than he does a basketball player.  He's a bulldozer in the lane and collected numerous offensive rebounds over Rakeem Christmas and Michael Gilchrist.  He's got a terrific wingspan, rediculous motor, and a desire to draw contact.  Physical guys who like to take a hit are rare to find these days, but Jernell is exactly that.  He struggles at times finishing at the rim and could use some work extending his range, but Jernell is an intriguing prospect who had a terrific game.

Marquise Teague, Spiece (6-1, 2011) PG

The #1 point guard in the country didn't dissapoint tonight, as I caught Teague in action in the very last game of the night.  He used his superior handles, his ability to change speeds, and got to the rim any time he felt like it.  Once in the paint he finished at the rim and created for his teammates.  At times he settled for jump shots when he was going by his defender at will, but in the second half vs. The Family he was making them at a high rate.  Overall a solid performance for Marquis…..which is a spectacular performance for basically anyone else.
