ESPN No. 1 ranked high school junior DeAndre Ayton had 23 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 blocks Wednesday on opening night at the 2016 Nike EYBL Peach Jam in North Augusta, SC.

 

The 6-10 center’s dominating performance led Cal Supreme to a 75-56 win over Albany City Rocks (NY).

 

Ayton, who shot a blistering 63 percent (10-of-16) from the field in the game, also had two assists.

 

He has been tearing up the Nike EYBL, averaging 19.5 points and 11.5 rebounds for Supreme this season.

 

Ayton, a native of the Bahamas, averaged 21 points, 16 rebounds and 3.8 blocks as a sophomore in 2014-15 for Balboa City School in San Diego.

 

Last summer he transferred to Phoenix’s Hillcrest Prep for his junior year, joining No. 1 sophomore, 6-11 forward Marvin Bagley III.

 

But after averaging 33 points in seven games with Hillcrest earlier this season, Bagley left the school due to negative reports about Hillcrest’s dubious academics.

 

Ayton stayed and had a great year at Hillcrest, averaging a whopping 29.2 points, 16.7 rebounds, and 3.8 blocks this season.

 

He also had a monster 52-point, 33-rebound, 10-block triple double in a 71-67 win over Sunrise Christian (Wichita, Kan.) back in January.

 

Experts are raving about the gifted Ayton, whom Scout.com ranked as the best high school player period, regardless of class.

 

“DeAndre Ayton is the best prospect in high school basketball,” said Scout.com’s Evan Daniels. “He’s the type of center talent that you project to the NBA and not just be an NBA player, but a really good NBA player and potentially a future all-star.”

 

On Thursday, Ayton’s Cal Supreme will face ex-teammate Marvin Bagley’s Phoenix Phamily at Peach Jam in a highly anticipated matchup.
