EYBL: Spiece Starts 4-0 Behind Spartan-commit Davis
April 27, 2014
We’ve been big fans of Caleb Swanigan – more on him later – but this weekend belonged to 2015 Michigan State commit Deyonta Davis. The 6’9″ forward was looking to score (29.5% %Shots) and that’s just what he did.
Spiece sits atop Division B after starting the EYBL season with a perfect 4-0 record. We’ll share some statistical information, but first a quick look at the team’s efficiency and four factors:
Spiece won three of the four factors handily, but did have issues turning the ball over. 2016 elite Jayson Tatum and his St. Louis Eagles pushed Spiece to the brink, but failed to win (53-52 final; Tatum with 18 points but just 6/17 FG & 35.3% eFG).

Comparing EYBL & NCAA Statistics
November 5, 2013
Although we haven’t publicly released much of it, Late Night Hoops has spent a fair amount of time analyzing EYBL advanced statistics. One question that is appropriate to ask is, “do EYBL look anything like D-I NCAA statistics?”… and the answer is, “YES!”
The statistics below include all 2013 EYBL games and 2012-13 D-I NCAA games (including games involving teams transitioning to D-I). (Source data: nikeEYB.com & ncaa.com; calculations performed by LNH)

Video: Tyus Jones Not Being Very Nice
Howard Pulley guard Tyus Jones (2014 Apple Valley HS, Minn.) is known for his exceptional point guard skills. During the EYBL Session in Dallas this Saturday, Jones provided another example that he can be an aggressive/mean/nasty scorer as well. This play is flat out rude, but in a good way.
You’ll see Tyus’ good off-the-court pal #15 Jahlil Okafor playing defense above the free throw line. Howard Pulley PG #12 Jarvis Johnson dishes to Tyus who makes Okafor and the Fire pay for their positioning.
Jones turned 17 on Friday and celebrated the evening with 27 points, 7 assists, 6 steals and only 2 turnovers in a 74-72 win over CIA Bounce. Tyus was 11/11 from the field in that game (1/1 3FG, for an eFG% of 104.5%). Ridiculous.
