Following the same blueprint of the boy’s EYBL, Nike has produced one of the nation’s top high school girl’s basketball leagues in the country. The Girls EYBL features 32 Nike sponsored programs that will battle it out at three different stops in hopes of becoming one of 24 teams to compete at the star-studded Nike Nationals Tournament in Chicago, IL.
In its inaugural season, the Girls EYBL started their first event in April at the Boo Williams Nike Invitational in Hampton, VA. All 32 programs were in attendance competing in five guaranteed games. The teams were divided into four divisions: Diana Taurasi, Lindsay Whalen, Sylvia Fowles and Maya Moore. Each division consisted of eight teams from across the country.
