2017 ALL-EYBL FIRST TEAM

The 2017 Nike EYBL regular season awards have been released. The awards honor the Most Valuable Player, Offensive Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and the All-EYBL First, Second and Third teams.

The annual awards highlight individual accomplishments of the regular season, prior to the EYBL Peach Jam. The Peach Jam championship which will be held July 12-16 at the Riverview Park Activities Center in North Augusta, South Carolina.

Duke incoming freshman Gary Trent Jr. was the 2016 Nike EYBL Regular season MVP, averaging 22.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.3 steals per outing for Howard Pulley. Unfortunately for Trent, Howard Pulley missed out on the coveted Peach Jam title. Instead Mokan Elite (KS) — featuring Michael Porter Jr and Trae Young — claimed the 2017 title in a win over the PSA Cardinals.

For the 2017 EYBL Regular Season, Cal Supreme Elite (CA) five-star forward Bol Bol has been named the EYBL Most Valuable Player. The 7-foot-2 incoming senior led Cal Supreme Elite to a 13-3 record while averaging 24.1 points, 10.0 rebounds, 4.5 blocks, 1.9 assists and 0.5 steals per outing.

Bol shot 65.6% from the field, a staggering 48.9% from the three-point line — converting 22 of 45 attempts — and 83.3% from the free throw line hitting 45 of his 54 attempts.

“Bol has been big for us, and he’s a great talent, very skilled and versatile,” Director Gary Franklin told D1Circuit. “I think that our coaches realized that early on, so they put him in a position to allow him to be who he is, a player. (The coaching staff) didn’t want to just keep him in the post, and that allowed him to display his overall talent.”

Bol leads an extremely talented All-EYBL First Team that includes maybe the best player on the circuit in Nike Phamily (CA) 2018 five-star Marvin Bagley III.

On a team where he was the talent, Bagley averaged 25.8 points on 54.6% from the floor, 14.9 rebounds, 3.1 blocks, 1.7 assists and 0.9 steals. Bagley had three games of 30 points or more including a 31 point, 25 rebound, 4.0 block performance.

Bol and Bagley are joined by Howard Pulley (MN) point guard Tre Jones (19.3 points, 8.3 assists), Boo Williams (VA) guard Keldon Johnson (20.7 points, 8.5 rebounds) and Mokan Elite (KS) forward Jontay Porter (18.1 points, 12.6 rebounds).

For the first time in EYBL history, an underclassman earned Defensive Player of the Year as well as All-EYBL Third Team recognition. Cole Anthony — son of former National Champion and UNLV great Greg Anthony — earned both. For the second straight season, a member of the PSA Cardinals (NYC) earned defensive accolades.

Anthony — a five-star member of the class of 2019 — led the league in steals averaging 2.6 per outing, almost a half a steal more than the next player. Maybe more impressive, Anthony only allowed 11.2 points to the team’s top opposing guards — limiting Tyler Herro, Javonte Smart, Tyrese Maxey and Tyger Campbell to single digits.
