Eytle-Rock closed out the season as EABL Playoff Winner, NBL Division 2 Winner with 21 points in the Final topped off by a solid campaign for Great Britain U20’s with 8.7 ppg & 3.0 apg in 25 minutes per outing.

A new player into the Top 5 is Amin Adamu who finishes the 2016/17 season being ranked #3 after a breakout season at Barking Abbey. The athletic guard has been unstoppable in the EABL posting a league high 21.9 ppg and a key figure in NBL Div 2 winning multiple championships this season. Adamu also received his first ever international caps for Great Britain U20’s where he didn’t disappoint showing his talent worldwide averaging 9.4 ppg.
