Written by Griffin Greenberg

EYBL Session 3 last week was a big one for the 16U hoopers. The exciting event which took place in Kentucky told us even more about some of the top players in EYBL! Let's look at the 16U standouts from Session 3 in Kentucky.

Robert Wright III (Team Final): 20 PPG (60.6% FG & 48.1% from 3), 3.5 RPG, 6.8 APG

Wright was arguably the top performer of the weekend and he's been very impressive all summer. He hasn't had one EYBL game this summer with fewer than 14 points and he's only had one performance shooting under 50% from the field. The shifty guard is quick on the court, finishes through contact at the hoop, hits the three-ball at a high rate, and is great at finding his teammates as he delivered two 12-assist games in Session 3 and is now 3rd in assists per game in EYBL. Wright continued his dominance last weekend to lead Team Final to a 5-1 record on the weekend and secure himself offers from Kansas State and Penn State. Robert Wright III is up next so watch out as he should only rise on the national scale.

Daquan Davis (Team Takeover): 14.2 PPG (54.4% FG), 2.3 RPG, 4.5 APG, 1.8 SPG

Davis is a player that can create a ton of points for his team. He led Team Takeover to a 6-0 weekend and did so by displaying his quick decision-making on the court, speed off the dribble, aggressiveness, and more. Davis had 25 points on 10-16 shooting, along with 5 assists and 4 steals in a win over Brad Beal Elite. Team Takeover secured their Peach Jam bid with their dominant weekend and Davis should continue to gain more attention with how he has been playing recently.

Aiden Sherrell (The Syndicate): 14.7 PPG (51.5% FG), 9 RPG, 2.3 BPG

Sherell is another player who made his mark last weekend. He delivered 3 double-doubles in Session 3 and now averages a double-double in EYBL as a whole. He also had two games last weekend with 4 blocks. The 6'10" forward plays with a lot of energy and is a rebounding machine. He also has an impressive post-fade game and can shoot the ball from outside posing as a big threat all-around for opposing teams. Sherrell leads 16U in rebounds and is 4th in blocks.

Sammie Yeanay (Nightrydas): 14 PPG (46% FG), 10.3 RPG, 1.5 BPG

Yeanay has been one of the most consistent players this summer. He has come through with great performances in each game. His best game last weekend came in a double-overtime win as he had 20 points, 17 rebounds, and 3 blocks. Yeanay is a dominant rim-runner that is a force on each end of the floor and made the standout list for the second session in a row. He is currently 5th in rebounding and recently picked up a Texas Tech offer.

Thomas Sorber (Team Final): 12.5 PPG (63% FG), 8 RPG, 1.8 BPG

Sorber had himself a very big weekend in Kentucky. The 6'9" forward finished through contact at the hoop on multiple occasions, showed off his post moves, and was able to secure plenty of rebounds. He also makes an impact on the defensive end protecting the hoop. Sorber had 3 games with 15+ points and helped Team Final put together a very strong weekend overall.

Pharaoh Compton (SFG): 13.4 PPG (75.7% FG), 9.4 RPG, 3.4 BPG

Compton is another player that made the standout list for the second week in a row. He has been an absolute force for Strive For Greatness this summer and is gaining attention quickly. Compton continued to rise up for thunderous dunks and had many flashy blocks as he has done all summer long. He delivered a near triple-double against NH Lightning as he had 14 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 blocks. The forward had three double-doubles on the weekend and continues to gain well-deserved recognition with his play.

Brayden Burries (SFG): 20.4 PPG (58.2% FG), 4.4 RPG, 4.2 APG

Burries has also been very consistent in EYBL. He is a very exciting player to watch as he uses his speed to get to the hoop and has a very quick handle and first step. He's also a great shot creator for everyone on the court including himself and he is very efficient in many different ways on the court. Burries had three games shooting 60% or better from the field and he only will receive more recognition as time goes on.

Mercy Miller (JL3 Elite): 15 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 3.6 APG, 2 SPG

The 36th-ranked player in the nation had an impressive showing doing a bit of it all in Kentucky. Miller is an explosive player that uses his patience and craftiness to finish at the hoop and deliver flashy passes to his teammates. His quick hands allow him to secure many steals and at 6'4" he can rebound very well. The 4-star had two games with 8 rebounds and a game with 5 steals.

Karter Knox (Florida Rebels): 16.3 PPG (50% FG), 4.8 RPG

Knox made the standout list for the second week in a row as well. Knox can really score the ball and showed so as he had two 24+ point performances in Session 3. He's an athletic G/F who can shoot the ball and is a fierce player who can impact the game on both the offensive and defensive end. Knox recently picked up an offer from Louisville.

Dylan Warlick (Team Griffin): 15.7 PPG (56.9% FG), 5.2 RPG, 3.3 APG

Warlick can score at all three levels and makes his mark on the glass. He is a very efficient shooter and can get to his spots on the court. He led Team Griffin to a 5-1 record and had a 22-point, 9-rebound performance along the way. Warlick had an incredible 10:1 assist to turnover ratio on the weekend as he displayed his high IQ. He recently picked up an offer from Southwestern Oklahoma State University.
