’27 G Darrell ‘Rell Davis– City PYBL
Davis is a smooth operator in the paint, using both hands and a full bag of tricks to get around his defender to finish at the rim. Points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks- he regularly provides all of the above for his City PYBL team. His patience coming off of screens, his IQ to read the defense and make quick decisions on the fly- Davis constantly showed a strong feel for the game throughout the regular season and playoffs.
’26 F Allen Mbuyamba– Anne Arundel
Mbuyamba plays incredibly hard from the moment his coach put him into the game until the moment he took him out to catch his breath. Crashing the boards, fighting for loose balls, converting chasedown blocks to points at the other end- he does all of the little things that stick out to coaches in attendance. While his footwork is developing, he excels at bullying his matchup on the block and finishes we rim.
’27 PG KJ Little– Southern Maryland
Little shoots the ball with a very quick and fluid release, has range that extends a foot or so beyond the three point line, and is a deadly sniper from all 5 spots around the arc. Shows a good IQ with the way that he blows by hard closeouts and finishes in the paint, gets very hot from distance but doesn’t settle.
