Memphis YOMCA (TN) will play the Boston Amateur Basketball Club (MA) LIVE on ESPNU at 7:00pm EST.
YOMCA is undefeated at the Peach Jam and are being led by the powerful tandem of Shaq Goodwin and Jarnell Stokes (@JarnellStokes). Stokes, who recently announced his transfer to powerhouse Oak Hill Academy, is averaging 14.7 points and 9.7 rebounds through 7 games at the Peach Jam. Goodwin is the epitome of efficiency having made 36 of his 45 field goal attempts (78%). Both will need big games to combat the outstanding defense of BABC led by junior Nerlens Noel (@NerlensNoel3).
Noel has 2 triple doubles (points, rebounds, & blocks) in the 6 games he has played in at the Peach Jam and is making it impossible for teams to score around the rim. Just this morning, Noel played a hand in holding the Oakland Soldiers 15 points under their average, holding them to 60 points and only 21 in the first half.
The two teams have matched up before, May 1st in Frisco, Texas at the second circuit of the EYBL. YOMCA gave BABC their only loss of season, but Noel was held to only 12 minutes on the court due to injury.
This game is for the second ever EYBL championship and should be a highly competitive & physical battle. The game can be seen LIVE ON ESPNU at 7:00pm EST. Enjoy!
