A triple-double on Saturday. A 45-point outing on Sunday. All in a (long) weekend’s work for incoming Cooper Flagg, whose sophomore year of high school is barely behind him.
Flagg, ranked as the No. 2 player in the class of 2025 on the 247Sports Composite Rankings, is churning out masterful performances at the Memphis Session of the Nike EYBL this weekend. On Saturday, according to SportsCenter NEXT, he posted 27 points, 17 rebounds, and 11 assists for Maine United. He also had four blocks, according to Overtime. Watch him weave through traffic, finish hard at the rim and make a good pass in transition below in SportsCenter’s highlight footage.

Listed as 6-foot-8 and 195 pounds, Flagg attends Montverde Academy (Fla.) Last season as a sophomore, he posted averages of 9.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.2 blocks, according to MaxPreps. As a junior, he should be an even more prominent face of the perennial championship contender.
