1 3 up
NJ Playaz

Isaiah Briscoe carried them all year long and the Playaz won the EYBL title. They've consistently been amongst the nation's best all year and deserve to finish #1 despite an early exit from the Fab 48. 

2 up

One of the highest ranked teams in the preseason took a while to get going after a string of injuries to start the spring but as the old saying goes the creme always rises to the top. WE R1 took home the UAA crown winning the Finals and closed the season strong with a 20 point win over Team Final in End of Summer Classic.

3 2 down
SC Raptors Elite

One of the best teams to watch. Always underrated and always proved everyone wrong all season. They were invited to the UAA Finals and advanced all the way to the semis before dropping just their 2nd game this year. Congrats on a great season! 

4 5 up
Florida Vipers

Another surprise team this spring the Vipers simply won everything they entereed. Some could argue they deserve the #1 spot but the three teams ahead just simply have a stronger strength of schedule. 

5 14 up
Indiana Elite

They started and finished the season the same way. Winning. Indiana Elite took home the uprising/guantlet 

6 up
Team Penny

A staple in the Top 25 all year Team Penny didn't prove wrong making it to the semi finals of Peach Jam. 

7 12 up
Team Scan
New York, N.Y.

A preseason top 5 pick, Team Scan took a while to get going but started to click in the end. Finishing top 4 in EYBL keeps them in the Top 10. 

8 10 up
DC Premier

A rock solid season in the UAA and winning Fab 48 bumps DC Premier into the Top 10. Nothing too flashy about this squad just wins. 

9 1 down
Team Final
Philadelphia, PA.

A disappointing run in Peach Jam doesn't spoil a spectacular season for Team Final. 

10 up
Team Loaded (VA)

Winning their division, winning championship at Summer Jam, and strong showing in the Adidas Uprising/Guantlet league puts Team Loaded at #10. 

11 up

Another team plagued by injuries to start the season. The tide started to change for SportsU in June when they took home the Rumble in the Bronx title. They went on a incredible run at the UAA Finals that included wins over New Heights, Atlanta Xpress, and SC Raptors Elite. 

12 9 down
Atlanta Celtics
Atlanta, GA

A solid showing all year by the young Celtics. They went to the test at Summer Jam showing they are one of the country's best. 

13 13 none

KC Run GMC was one of the UAA's top programs this year. Their run for a UAA title was put to an end after running into WE R1 in the semi finals. 

14 11 down
Athletes First

Allonzo Trier capped off a steller year leading Athletes First to one of their best season in EYBL. 

15 up
Boo Williams

A perennial contender in EYBL Boo Willams made it to the semi finals of the Peach Jam ending their quest to be EYBL champions. 

16 19 up
All Ohio Red

Initially falling off the radar All Ohio Red has key victories over Houston Hoops, Team Penny, and Oakland Soldiers that helped propel All Ohio Red to the top of their division. 

17 4 down
Team Charlotte

Being put on the map after their impressive championship run at UA Invitational, Team Charlotte quickly developed a strong reputation for being one of the toughest teams to play against. 

18 up
Oakland Soldiers
Oakland, Calif.

The preseason #1 team fell short of high expectations with their guard play failing to match the talent in their front court. Still the Soldiers managed to be one of the top teams in EYBL. 

19 up
Texas Titans

One of the most dominating teams on the circuit this season. The Titans finished with 11-5 record good for a 3 way tie in their divison. 

20 7 down
New Heights

After dominating the spring New Heights took a blow losing center Mike Nzei who shut it down after committing to Seton Hall. Could have finished much higher in the rankings if their whole squad finished the season. 

21 up
Houston Hoops
Houston, Texas

Another strong team out of Texas led by guard De'Aaron Fox. Houston Hoops got the short end of the tie breaker putting them in 4th place of their division. 

22 18 down
Atlanta Xpress
Atlanta, GA

Stacked with talent the Xpress were one of the most feared UAA teams in the country but they always fell a bit short in the championship bracket. 

23 22 down
Illinois Wolves

The true definition of a team, the Illinois Wolves had a balanced scoring attack and were always in the hunt for a championship in the UAA. 

24 15 down

A slow start but a strong finish helped 1Nation put their UAA program name on the map. Josh Jackson and Josh McFolley were one of the best backcourts in the country. 

25 up
Dream Vision
Las Vegas, NV

One of the favorites in the Adidas Guantlet/Uprising league, Dream Vision fell short of taking the crown losing to Indiana Elite in the Finals of Super 64. 

Best of the Rest
