“The Circuit” – Mac Irvin Fire Vs. Oakland Soldiers, (Nike EYBL Season 2, Session 1)
The 2013 Nike EYBL circuit has kicked off in Los Angeles this weekend. These are highlights between the Oakland Soldiers, who took home the 2012 EYBL championship and the scrappy, hungry Mac Irvin Fire squad from Chicago.
Although the Mac Irvin Fire were without there top prospect Jahlil Okafor (2014) due to an ankle injury that didn’t stop them from giving the Soldiers everything they had. Down the stretch you will see in these highlights exactly why the Soldiers were crowned the champions last summer and just how REAL Stanley Johnson (2014) is, he’s definitely taken on the role as a great leader.
Also, you can see that the EYBL isn’t just a walk in the park, these games are intense. The coaches from the Soldiers and Mac Irvin are sweating, every court is packed with college coaches from all over to see these kids showcase their talent. Nike has done an amazing job constructing this league. Los Angeles is the first of four sessions of play before the highly anticipated Peach Jam.
