Lexington, Ky. — Five-star combo guard De’Aaron Fox and his Houston Hoops team currently sit on top of the C Division in the Nike EYBL tour with a 7-1 record, their only loss coming to the PSA Cardinals, 66-63.
“It was a tough game,” the 6-foot-3 2016 guard from Katy (TX) Cypress Lakes said last weekend. “A couple of calls didn’t go our way and we missed a lot of gimmes. I think that really decided the game.”
On the EYBL tour, Fox is averaging 13.2 points, 6.8 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game. Despite solid numbers, Fox says he has some high expectations for the summer.
“I want to be the MVP of the EYBL and win a championship,” Fox said emphatically. “I want to show coaches that I can lead any type of team. I’ve played with three different teams in the EYBL and I think we are just getting better and better.”
