EYBL: Day One, Part A

MCCLELLAN PARK, Calif. -- The opening day of the evaluation period provided us with a look at a couple of under the radar players. Kenny Williams, Levan Alston and Trey Lowe caught Scout.com's eye.

Kenny Williams, SG, Boo Williams – Last week Williams had a strong showing at the Southern Jam Fest and Williams continued his strong play at the EYBL Sacramento event on Friday. Williams has an impressive shooting stroke and deep range on his shot. He hit 6-for-9 from three on Friday and also worked in three other baskets -- two off put backs and one a transition finish. If Williams keeps up these type of shooting performances, offers will start pouring in.

Jessie Govan, C, NY Lightning – Govan got his spring off to a solid start in Lightning's win over Boo Williams. The 6-foot-10, 265-pound center showed his scoring ability on the block, where he hit three right jump hooks. Govan also had one put back and stepped away from the rim and buried an 18-foot jump shot. Govan finished 10 points and five rebounds in the EYBL opener.

Camron Justice, SG, The Travelers – Fresh off a commitment to Vanderbilt, Justice pumped in five three-pointers on eight attempts in The Travelers double overtime loss to Team Final. Justice is a terrific long-range shooter that possesses a quick release and deep range. He's comfortable shooting on the move and is improving his shot off the dribble. Justice finished with 23 points in the loss.

Levan Alston, SG, Team Final – With a host of college coaches looking on, Alston, a 6-foot-4 wiry wing prospect, put together a 31-point outing. Alston pumped in six three-pointers on nine attempts, but also scored off a mid-range pull-up, a floater in the lane and at the rim. Alston doesn't have a big reputation nationally, but he's certainly one that had the gym buzzing on the first day of the live period.

Trey Lowe, SG, Team Final – Lowe, who stands 6-foot-5, only scored seven points, but he certainly appears to be a wing we'll need to pay attention to throughout the spring and summer. He has a long, thin frame, is a capable shot maker from three and showed a good feel for the game on Friday. Lowe competes on both ends of the floor and has potential as a defender.

It's easy to see why Boo Williams is playing Matt Coleman up on the 17's. Coleman, a 6-foot-2 wiry guard, has an extremely quick first step and is impressive athletically. He can score when he needs, but he was primarily pass first Friday evening. Coleman, a 2017 prospect, finished with nine points and four assists on Friday.

*Desure Bowie, a 2015 point guard out of Brooklyn (N.Y.) Wings Academy, ran his team well, showed good speed and hit mid-range pull-ups with consistency for NY Lightning. Bowie finished with 14 points and six assists.

Jessie Govan told Scout.com that Connecticut, Georgetown, Seton Hall and Miami were recruiting him the hardest. He also cited interest from Arizona, Louisville, Cincinnati, Notre Dame, Syracuse and Kansas State.
