EABL 2023/24 Season Preview

Today marks the beginning of the 14th Elite Academy Basketball League season, offering up the highest level of youth basketball in the UK.

Barking Abbey were last season’s champions and will begin their title defence against City of London Academy, who made it as far as the elite eight last year.

BA will be without their star man Nedas Cholevinskas who made a move to Lithuania as he grabbed the opportunity to go pro. But the London based side still have a plethora of talent including last season’s finals MVP, Moziah King-Danchie.

League new boys Copleston High School and Sixth Form (Ipswich Basketball Academy) will be welcomed by Oaklands College.

The Canterbury Academy and the John Madejski Academy will also go head-to-head on the opening day in the south.

Matthew Goodwin’s Manchester Magic will take on Derby College as they look to build on their Final Four appearance.

Goodwin will have the opportunity to represent the British Basketball League side, Manchester Giants while also being available for the Magic which is a testament to his ability.

Despite winning coach of the year, Derby’s Matt Shaw will be looking to build on his team’s previous play-off disappointment.

Lancashire rivals Myerscough and Charnwood will be sure to produce fireworks with the former hoping to overcome their 2022/23 finals defeat with the help of a new promising acquisition, 18-year-old guard Tyrese Lacey.

SGS will begin life without Louie Tucker by taking on BMET, the 6’5 guard made a return to the United States where he’ll play NJCAA basketball for McCook Community College.
