Trier, Briscoe go Head to Head, Rabb Dominates

Two of Arizona’s top guard targets in the class of 2015 went head to head at the Nike Peach Jam today, and their battle did not disappoint.

Isaiah Briscoe and Allonzo Trier, two of the best players in the field, clashed in what was one of the most intense games of the EYBL finals.

Both players put their team on their back and embraced the one on one duel that was brewing. Briscoe led his team with 19 points and three assists, including numerous clutch baskets.

Trier was also impressive, pouring in an absurd 42 points. Though he needed 30 shots to get there, Trier was his typical self getting to the line 20 times, where he converted 17 free throws. Trier also chipped in 5 three pointers, while the opposing team managed just four total.

It was an extremely close game, as the score was tied 36-36 at halftime and regulation also ended in an 80-80 tie. The game went down to the final possessions, as Trier’s Athlete’s First team gave Briscoe and the NJ Playaz their first loss. However, Briscoe and the Playaz still advance to the Peach Jam knockout stage.

In other action, Oakland Soldier and 2015 Arizona recruit Ivan Rabb had a stellar game today, catapulting his AAU team into the final field of 8 despite a four way tie in their pool.

Rabb was dominant with an efficient 14 points and 10 rebounds in just 27 minutes. He hit 6-10 shots from the field.

But Rabb did most of his damage on defense, where he has emerged as one of the nation’s premier shot blockers. He rejected 5 shots and altered numerous others, a huge edge in a very close and important game. He also finished with two assists and a steal, and the Soldiers appear to be gaining momentum as they enter the Peach Jam quarterfinals.

    What a battle. If Arizona can land either one of these two, we’ll be in good hands.
    Damn. 42 pts…but on 30 shots. :/ I wonder what AK’s personal thoughts on who played the better overall game are.

    sounds like an epic game! Love briscoe and trier’s alpha dog mentalities and Rabb is matchup nightmare.

    I recorded the EYBL semis and finals thinking that this game and Rabb would be on there but to my disappointment it was nobody that I wanted to see in regards to teams.
    Got to see Briscoe and his NJ Playaz program in the finals though but I would have rather seen Trier/Rabb play..

    Sounds as though we can’t lose if we get either of these two. Both good kids with great games.

    Rabb… WOW.
