After three stops on the 2023 adidas 3SSB Circuit, three Team Trae Young underclassmen found themselves at or near the top of the statistical charts.
In 16U, Tahsheim Gary led all 16U players in assists per game with 9.0.

Meanwhile, Damario Adams was a beast on the boards and on defense, averaging 10 rebounds per game, which ranked fourth in 16U, and five blocks per game, which ranked 2nd.
The play of both during Chapter III in Rock Hill, SC over the weekend helped the 16s reach the tournament’s Sweet 16 at 16U, though they could not advance beyond there.

Down at 15U, Bryce Dixon has been the talk of the circuit, and he finished the third chapter ranked in the Top 10 in scoring, rebounds and blocks. He averaged a double double with 18 points (ranked 10th) and 10 rebounds (ranked 4th) while also posting two blocks per contest.
Bryce Dixon of @teamtraeyoungmb 15U has caught my eye a lot during this Adidas circuit. Very impressive finisher through contact for his age, and he's comfortable absorbing contact with a variety of moves to both power through players and finish around defenders pic.twitter.com/NBOjU4h7zx

With these players moving up next year, the future appears to be very bright for TTY.
