The best of the best in the adidas 3SSB Circuit were on the court in Rock Hill, South Carolina last week and Team Trae Young’s Jadyn Toppin saw it as an opportunity to ball out.

Toppin averaged 13.5 points per game over the TTY 17U Boys team’s four games at the tournament, second only to Ja’Kobe Walter (17.3 ppg) for the 17U team. He also hauled in 7.8 rebounds per contest and blocked a whopping 16 shots.

Max Feldman of took notice, adding Jadyn to his all tournament team after his big week in Rock Hill.

“It’s not all flashy and may not fill up the box score, but Jadyn Toppin’s winning impact was palpable throughout the four days in Rock Hill. A long and wiry versatile four-man with a very strong feel for positioning. A consistent two-way presence with strong defensive processing abilities, a crafty finishing package at the cup and physical upside looking ahead. Quick leaper and a high-impact two-way forward with an ultra malleable skillset.”

The week started on Wednesday afternoon with a hard fought game between TTY and Team Loaded.

Ja’Kobe Walter scored 20 points and Dink Pate added 10, while Jadyn Toppin complemented his only single digit scoring game of the tournament (9 points) with a 10-rebound, four-block effort. However, Team Loaded pulled out a 60-57 victory.

The Team Trae 17s bounced back on Thursday with a 65-44 victory over Team Huncho. Toppin led all scorers with 15 points in that contest. Kaden Cooper, who averaged 10 points per game for the tournament caught attention with his athleticism, resulting in multiple steals and blocks. Kieran Eliott added nine points and eight rebounds and Dink Pate posted eight points and six assists, en route to a 6.5 assists per game average for the tournament.

Friday’s opener was another tight battle, this time with Team Rose, and despite 25 points and 16 assists from Ja’Kobe Walter, and 16 points and nine blocks from Jadyn Toppin, TTY lost 65-63. Later Friday, Walter had 19 points, Toppin added 14 and Pate had nine assists, but NY Jayhawks topped TTY 74-64.
