NIKE EYBL Indy: All-Underclassmen Team

By D1 Circuit Staff, 05/02/18, 5:30PM EDT


Terren Frank

Team: Nike Phamily (CA)
Record: 1-3 (1-7 overall)

EYBL Indy stats: 19.8 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 1.3 APG, 1.3 SPG

Terren Frank has flown under-the-radar for the Nike Pfamily, but not any longer. Frank is a weapon offensively for the Phamily, leading the LA-based squad in scoring while shooting 44 percent from the perimeter. The 6-foot-8 Frank is a stretch-four in the Phamily offense, and was aided by the arrival of Indy All-Breakout Terry Armstrong. Frank is thriving as a main focal point for the Phamily, something he isn't yet accustomed to in high school at Sierra Canyon (CA). Frank is a high-major talent, and is turning into a hot commodity in the 2020 class.

Scott Barnes

Team: Nike Team Florida (FL)
Record: 2-2 (5-3 overall)

EYBL Indy stats: 14.8 PPG, 55% FG, 8.8 RPG, 5.8 APG, 1.3 SPG

There aren't many prospects more versatile than Nike Team Florida's Scott Barnes. NTF struggled as a team during session two, but Barnes continued his individual efficiency on offense and the boards. NTF played without Vernon Carey in the final game, and Barnes picked up the slack, putting up 20 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in the loss. Barnes (247 No. 7) is one the premier players in the 2020 class, and should continue his all-EYBL type production as the season continues.

Moses Moody

Team: Brad Beal Elite (MO)
Record: 3-1 (6-2 overall)

EYBL Indy stats: 18.8 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 1.8 APG

Moses Moody finds himself on this list for the second straight session, and for good reason. Moody (247 No. 248) is living up to his lofty billing through eight games, opening and closing Indianapolis with 26-point performances. Arkansas' top-ranked player in 2020 had a tough time with two stifling east-coast defenses in Team Takeover and BABC, and that lack of consistency is the only knock on Moody early on. Brad Beal Elite has a plethora of options offensively, and Moody is turning into the go-to option.

Hunter Dickinson

Team: Team Takeover (DC)
Record: 4-0 (8-0 overall)

EYBL Indy stats: 10.0 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 2.0 APG

Hunter Dickinson is the man down low for the best team in grassroots basketball. The 7-footer anchors the best defense in the EYBL, and while his numbers don't jump off the page, Dickinson's importance in Team Takeover's rotation cannot be understated. Star junior big man Armando Bacot (247 No. 21) the Takeover frontcourt in Indianapolis, bolstering an already terrific set of big men led by Dickinson. Takeover has a great chance continue their undefeated streak if Dickinson remains healthy and productive moving forward.

Cade Cunningham

Team: Drive Nation (TX)
Record: 2-2 (5-3 overall)

EYBL Indy stats: 11.5 PPG, 52.6 FG%, 5.0 RPG, 3.5 APG

Cade Cunningham replaced Tyrese Maxey on Drive Nation, and while Drrive will certainly miss Maxey and everything be brings to the table, the sophomore Cunningham (247 No. 17) allows them to immediately reload. The 6-foot-5 Cunningham moved up from Drive Nation's 16U squad, and he clearly belongs at the top level of grassroots basketball. He got better in every game, ending the session with a 16-point, 7-rebound, 4-assist performance in a blowout win over Boo Williams. Cunningham is a weapon in transition and a lock-down defender, and his emergence maintains Drive Nation's presence as a legitimate Peach Jam contender.

Josh Christopher

Team: The Truth (CA)
Record: 0-4 (1-3 overall)

EYBL Indy stats: 18.0 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 1.3 SPG

Josh Christoper also returns to this list from the first session, parlaying his first four games into four more solid performances. Christopher is a top-ten talent in 2020, playing with a ferocity and aggressiveness that coaches yearn for. The 6-foot-4 super athlete has the scoring part down, and will be looking to showcase different areas of his game in Atlanta and Hampton. Christopher is improving his versatility defensively, something that should come in handy for the undersized 'Truth' bunch.

Addison Patterson

Team: CIA Bounce (CAN)
Record: 1-3 (2-6 overall)

EYBL Indy stats: 18.5 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 2.3 APG

Addison Patterson joins Moses Moody, Scott Barnes and Josh Christopher as returners to the All-Underclassmen team. Patterson is a scoring machine, operating as one of the most aggressive drivers and finishers on the circuit. Unfortunately for Patterson, his performances haven't equated into wins for Bounce, an issue that he'll be looking to change in Atlanta and Hampton.
