17U Session 3 EYBL Standouts in Kentucky

Written by Griffin Greenberg

Session 3 of EYBL was in full swing last weekend in Louisville, KY. Three teams went 5-0 and we got to learn more about the top performers and how they fared as we entered the double-digit mark of games played in EYBL this summer. Let's look at the 17U standouts from Session 3 in Kentucky.

Devin Royal (All Ohio): 23.4 PPG (66.2% FG), 5.2 RPG, 2.2 APG, 1 BPG

Devin Royal makes the standout list for the second session in a row. He was very impressive as he delivered two 28+ point performances and led All Ohio to a 4-1 record. Royal made his presence known around the hoop, knocking down mid-range jumpers, rising up for dunks and finishing through contact. His play secured him a Miami offer and he has climbed the leaderboards and stands at #6 in EYBL scoring overall. Expect Royal to continue to climb in the rankings as well.

DJ Wagner (NJ Scholars): 19 PPG (49.4% FG), 3.2 RPG, 5.2 APG, 1.4 SPG

The top player in the nation led the star-studded NJ Scholars team to a 4-1 record on the weekend. Wagner wasn't only dominant on the scoring end, but also as a playmaker where he consistently set up his teammates. He also showed off his notable athleticism for crafty finishes at the hoop. Wagner helped the Scholars win three one-possession games to advance to an 11-2 record.

Ty-Laur Johnson (NY Renaissance): 20.8 PPG (40.3% FG), 3.4 RPG, 6.6 APG, 1.6 SPG

Johnson started off the weekend leading the NY Renaissance to a overtime win after coming back against LivOn-Fleur De Lis where he scored 31 points and had 7 rebounds, 8 assists, and 2 steals. The next game he scored 25 and led another comeback. NY Renaissance finished 5-0 on the weekend as Johnson showed off his elite court vision, scoring and finishing skills. He's currently ranked 95th by ESPN and had a great Session 3.

Sean Stewart (Florida Rebels): 14.2 PPG (50.9% FG), 10.4 RPG, 2.2 BPG

Stewart is another player who has made the standouts list in back-to-back sessions. The Duke commit did it all on both ends of the court. His freakish athleticism allows him to rise up for rebounds, blocks, and dunks as he displays his fearlessness around the hoop on each end. His bounce is among the most impressive of anyone that I've seen at the high school level. Stewart's best performance came in a win against Team Griffin where he had 23 points, 18 rebounds (6 offensive), 2 blocks and 3 steals.

Cody Williams (Vegas Elite): 19.4 PPG (52.2% FG), 5 RPG, 1 SPG

Williams had a string of great Session 3 outings. At 6'8" Williams' size benefits him in how he can really run the floor. He displayed his quickness and finishing as he had two 28-point games on over 58% shooting. One of those performances came in a win against a very strong Florida Rebels team. The Arizona state champion is currently ranked 26th by 247Sports.

Milan Momcilovic (Team Herro): 23.2 PPG (45.6% FG), 4.4 RPG, 3.4 APG, 1.6 SPG

Momcilovic has been impressive all summer long. Coming into Session 3, he scored over 20 points in 3 out of the 8 games Team Herro has played. He then delivered 4 out of 5 20+ point performances on the weekend. Momcilovic is a skilled forward who can handle and shoot the ball very well, gets to his spots as a result of his patience, and has a high IQ along with impressive court vision. He's ranked 35th in the nation (247Sports composite) and has picked up offers from Ole Miss, Michigan St., and Texas over the last month.

Justin Edwards (Team Final): 13.8 PPG (49.1% FG), 7.2 RPG, 1 SPG

The #3 player in the nation (247Sports) helped lead Team Final to a 5-0 record on the weekend. Edwards is a versatile player that uses his size to his advantage to get to the hoop to score, hit threes over defenders, and block shots on the other end. The lefty wing scored 26 points on a very efficient 11-14 shooting display, along with 6 rebounds in the team's 23-point win over BABC.

Dai Dai Ames (Mac Irvin Fire): 22 PPG (60.3% FG & 52.4% from 3), 5.2 APG

Ames had an incredibly efficient scoring weekend for Mac Irvin Fire. The PG's dominant scoring presence around the hoop and beyond the arc allowed him to also set his teammates up to score. In the two games that he didn't score 20+ points, he contributed for 20+. This isn't the first time we've seen this from Ames either as he was also a Session 2 standout and is now top-15 in points, blocks, and steals in EYBL.

Layden Blocker (Brad Beal Elite): 19.2 PPG (57.1% FG & 46.2% from 3), 7.4 RPG, 2.6 APG, 1.6 SPG

Blocker has a quick handle and is an efficient shooter. He also creates space for himself and gets to the hoop to score and while he is 6'2" he still grabs a ton of rebounds. Blocker showed out as he had two games with over 23 points and over 8 rebounds. The Sunrise Christian Academy guard is ranked 28th by ESPN and is in the top 15 for scoring in EYBL and is one of the top 3 rebounders among guards.

Aden Holloway (Team CP3): 20 PPG (40.5% FG), 5 RPG, 7 APG, 2 SPG

Holloway can impact the game in so many different ways. Scoring, assisting, defense, rebounding, he does it all. The La Lumiere guard displayed all of that in Kentucky and how much of a difference he makes on the court. His craftniess and IQ allow him to perform at an elite level and he had some big performances over the weekend. Holloway is currently ranked 27th by ESPN.

Wesley Yates III (LivOn-Fleur De Lis): 20 PPG (52.1% FG & 41.2% from 3), 4.4 RPG, 2.4 APG, 1.2 SPG

Yates had a big weekend hitting shots all over the court, finishing through contact, and doing much more. He has the ability to catch and shoot and create shots at a very high level and is a disruptive defender. The top-50 player had 25 points on 10-17 shooting (4-7 from 3) and 8 rebounds in a blowout win against JL3 Elite and led LivOn-Fleur De Lis to a 4-1 record.

Aaron Bradshaw (NJ Scholars): 15 PPG (55% FG), 7.2 RPG, 2.6 BPG, 1.4 SPG

The 5-star center was a force on each end of the court. Bradshaw knows where to be when on the court, he moves very well for a 7-footer and is a great finisher and shot-blocker. Bradshaw scored 21 points and had 11 rebound (6 offensive), 3 assists, 3 blocks, and 2 steals in a 10-point win over Strive For Greatness. He has impressed all summer long and should only continue to do so.

Tyler Bey (Oakland Soldiers): 14.4 PPG (56% FG), 4.6 RPG, 1.4 SPG

Bey helped the Oakland Soldiers finish at a 4-1 record on the weekend. He displays great shooting from all over the court including the ability to shoot off of the dribble. At 6'8" he has an aggressive style of play where he attacks on the offensive end and corrals steals on defense. He had possibly the best single-game performance of the weekend as he dropped 35 points on an incredible 14-16 shooting performance (3-3 from three), along with 7 rebounds and 3 steals as he led the Oakland Soldiers over the Florida Rebels.
