Atlanta, Georgia - The 2019 Nike EYBL season tipped off this past weekend in Atlanta's own suburban backyard in Emerson, Georgia at the fabulous Lakepoint Sportscenter. It was also the start of the one and only spring live period, where college coaches and scouts get to spectate their recruits and maybe even spot some new recruits. 

Georgia's own AOT Running Rebels had themselves a great year last AAU season in the Nike EYBL. The Running Rebels finished the regular season with a 13-3 overall regular season record and making an appearance in the Nike Peach Jam last July. They finished Peach Jam with a 3-2 record and unfortunately ended their season there in pool play. 

This year, top prospects, 2020 PG Sharife Cooper and 2020 SG Brandon Boston Jr., were the main key pieces returing from last year's team and this past weekend was not the start they were looking to get off at. The Running Rebels went undefeated last spring when the sessino was hosted in Atlanta, but this year they finish their hometown weekend with a 1-3 overall record. 

The Nike EYBL is a grind and it will take a team effort to get wins in this league.
