Household Names Take Over Nike EYBL All-Session III Team

Another week, another Nike EYBL All-Session squad, and another list stacked with household names. There were plenty of contenders for Session III at LakePoint Sporting Community - Champions Center, perhaps more than the first two sessions, but when the best players on the best teams continue to put up big numbers and wins, it's hard to keep them off the list. 

NIKE EYBL ALL-SESSION III TEAM

G: Tre Jones (Howard Pulley (MN), 2018 Flo40 No. 19)

Session III Statistics: 21.3 ppg., 5.3 rpg., 10.8 apg., 3.0 spg.

Session III Team Record: 4-0


There isn't a prospect in the country playing at a higher level than the 6-foot-2 floor general. Not a chance. Jones is currently in a league of his own. It's not just the fact he is getting it done, either, leading the Panthers to now 11 straight wins and the best record in the league. It's how he is doing it and who he does it against. Nothing cemented that more than the Session III finale against Houston Hoops and Flo40 No. 13 Javonte Smart when Jones dominated for 31 points and 17 assists with just one turnover. The tear he is on is absolutely incredible.

G: Cole Anthony (PSA Cardinals (NY), 2019 Flo40 No. 12)

Session III Statistics: 20.5 ppg., 4.3 rpg., 7.3 apg., 4.5 spg.

Session III Team Record: 3-1


If all anyone looked at was the points, assists, and team record, Anthony's session might be considered fairly routine to what he has done all season and certainly worthy of another nod on the All-Session team, but adding 4.5 steals per game to the mix is downright ridiculous. It's safe to say the 6-foot-2 Anthony controlled both ends of the floor once again and is now a consistent force and nightmare for pretty much any team.

G: RJ Barrett (UPlay Canada, 2019 Flo40 No. 1)

Session III Statistics: 30.3 ppg., 10.8 rpg., 3.5 apg.

Session III Team Record: 1-3


Move over, 2018 Flo40 No. 1 Marvin Bagley III, there's a new scoring leader in the Nike EYBL. Although Barrett did not play in Session I, the nation's top junior has returned to the hardwood from a long and successful sophomore campaign at Montverde Academy (FL) and has dominated ever since. Whether it's shooting, slashing, jumping, or passing, Barrett exploded this session, which included a 41-point, 13-rebound outing Saturday against Team United (NC). The 6-foot-5 shooting guard is just finding his rhythm, too, and that means more trouble for defenses across the league.

G: Cameron Reddish (Team Final (PA), 2018 Flo40 No. 4)

Session III Statistics: 22.3 ppg., 7.3 rpg., 4.3 apg.

Session III Team Record: 3-1


The beautiful thing about Reddish's game is he can do everything well. No matter what his team needs, he can deliver it. So much was the case this weekend. The 6-foot-7 wing got buckets in bunches while drawing all sorts of defensive looks. He also helping his teammates, especially Louis King, get open shots. There was a lot to like about Reddish in getting his squad back on the right side of the Peach Jam bubble, and it's what makes him one of the best players in the country.

G: Keldon Johnson (Boo Williams (VA), 2018 Flo40 No. 16)

Session III Statistics: 23.5 ppg., 10.0 rpg., 2.3 apg.

Session III Team Record: 3-1


Posting 21 points and 18 rebounds in a close loss to begin the session may not have been ideal considering the outcome, but Johnson didn't let the foot off the gas one bit. He stuck with it and made sure his squad bounced back. The talent has always been there, and now the leadership is starting to come out. This was a tough slate playing against E1T1, BABC, MOKAN Elite, and the Georgia Stars, and Johnson masterfully pieced together as strong of a session as any player could.
