Nike EYBL releases 2016 grassroots schedule

VIEW THE 2017 NIKE EYBL SCHEDULE AND TEAM LIST

The Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) is arguably the best grassroots circuit on the planet.  127 players that played on the EYBL circuit were chosen as McDonald’s All-American nominees in 2015.  Seventeen of the twenty-four selected to play in the prestigious McDonald’s All-American game were alumni of the EYBL.  In the 2014 NBA Draft, 3 of the top 4 picks were former EYBL hoopers.  The Nike circuit is rich with talent, and the 2016 live periods can’t come fast enough.
