EYBL Atlanta Offensive Player of the Session: Collin Sexton

By D1 Circuit Staff, 06/03/16, 11:45AM EDT


In a magical season for the Southern Stampede lead guard, Collin Sexton continues to top himself game after game and exceed perhaps even his own expectations.

A few weeks after dropping 30+ in every game in Hampton, the lethal scorer nearly matched his feat (dropping just 25 against Takeover) while upping his overall scoring average helped by a 44-point outburst.

From the outset of the weekend in Atlanta, Sexton was firing on all pistons and seemingly every spot on the floor was red-hot for him at any time.

Aside from consistently knocking down mid-range and perimeter jumpers, contested or otherwise, Sexton was once again getting to the line at an other-wordly rate.

An aggressiveness that would not be denied, combined with Sexton’s deadly first step have allowed him to more than double the next closest player in attempts at the charity stripe, a skill that will only help him at the next level if he keeps his consistency from the line.

Even with opposing defenses tailoring game-plans specifically to stop him, Sexton has only improved with each session of the spring so far and he looked as comfortable as ever in responding to whatever the defense threw at him.

His array of spin moves, crossovers, and speed changes allowed him to get into the lane at will, where he was equally effective scoring the rock, dishing it to teammates, or showing off his aforementioned ability to get to the line.

Giving Sexton this honor was a no-brainer and all but ensures his winning the top overall honor for the sensational season he had.
