Team 1 from the EBA Fab 5 Camp had a group full of energetic and talented players. The tone was set with 5-foot-8 wing-forward Zoey Cooley from Laurel, Mississippi. Her aggressiveness will play well for her club team, SME, on the travel circuit. Alongside of Cooley was a local player, Dasha Cannon of Cleveland, Georgia, who gave great effort in the paint. She continued her solid play from the week before at the APB Showcase. A pair of point guards helped direct the traffic for this team. Kennedy Calhoun of Charlotte, North Carolina, proved she is a natural leader on the court and used her vocal leadership to help her teammates. While class of 2022 Zeni Purge of E.T. Booth Middle School used her ball handling to deliver the ball to her teammates.

A trio of guards made an impression with an array of skills. Reilly Brophy of St. Louis, Missouri, showed skill with her passing ability as she can pass with either hand with confidence. Yet she proved she could be a consistent shooter with good rotation on her spot up jumper. Jada Powell of Lees Summit, Missouri, is a slashing combo guard who finished plays in transition. While Eleecia Carter of Windermere, Florida, proved to be a very disruptive force on the defensive end. Her versatility caused problems for her opponents.

Two 2021 players to keep an eye on this upcoming year are Nevaeh Caldwell on Charlotte, North Carolina and Gentry Smith of Homer, Georgia. Caldwell is a tough slasher in traffic and possesses leadership abilities. While Smith is a consummate team player. There is nothing flashy about her game, but she is consistently productive while on the court.
