EMERSON, GA-

Thursday night EAB 17u dropped a 82-81 clawfest to AOT Running Rebels (GA) at Hoopseen’s Best of the South.  The headliner was Brandon Boston, a sophomore from Norcross High School.  Boston scored an outrageous 52 points in the victory.  Oklahoma State offered him.  Kansas, Georgia, Virginia Tech, etc. already extended offers prior.

The game wasn’t really close most of the night.  Watch the finish.

Lipscomb, Vanderbilt, UT Martin, Southeast Missouri, Evansville, Murray State, etc. all watched K.J. Johnson score 33 points against a mighty opponent.

Afterwards Lipscomb extended an offer.

New Kid in School

AOT earned a NIKE deal with incredible athleticism and impressive size.

They finished the EYBL regular season 13-3 and missed the Peach Jam quarterfinals with a 3-2 Peach Jam record in pool play.  Any team that won 76.1% of their EYBL games deserves respect.

EAB 17u entered the game mentally prepared though they were thoroughly outrebounded in the opening half.  The A.O.T. physicality overwhelmed the smaller EAB 17u frontline.
