Memphis, TN (Future150) -- The best players in the state of Tennessee, regardless of class, gathered in Memphis this weekend to take part in the 1st annual 10aC Top 20 Elite Showcase, hosted by Bobby Bates and Left Hand Right Hand LLC.

The blue squad outlasted the red squad by a final score of 145-140 in a game of highlight reel dunks and dazzling assists. Here are the prospects who stood out the most to the Future150 staff on hand.

2014 SF Leron Black:

Future150's #1 overall prospect in the nation did not disappoint this weekend, winning the overall MVP award. He dominated the game showcasing his improved mid-range and long range jumper, scoring 35 points and hauling down over 20 rebounds. He rebounded, played tough defense, and was extremely active in transition. Right now, he is taking a hard look at UConn, Illinois, N.C. State, Florida, Kansas, Ohio State, Missouri, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt.

2013 CF Shannon Hale:

The 6'8" combo forward impressed the Future150 staff with an improved perimeter game. He won the event's three-point contest on Saturday, and was stroking long range jump shots all weekend. He has a college ready frame, has solid post moves, and showed us good versatility inside. Alabama is getting a good one by adding Shannon. He won the MVP award for the red team in their losing effort.

2014 SF Jalen Lindsey:

The MVP for the winning team, Jalen was very impressive this weekend. Currently the #23 prospect nationally in his class, there is a good possibility that we slide him up in the rankings in our next update. He has all the tools to be a special prospect, and his jump shot looked very crisp all weekend. He loves to get out in transition and is a gifted slasher when attacking the rim. Louisville, Florida, Tennessee, Ohio St., Providence, Auburn, Miss. St., N.C. State, and Vanderbilt have all offered and are in good position with him. Duke, Kentucky, and North Carolina have recently gotten involved.

2014 PF Chris Chiozza:

The best point guard in the state of Tennessee was in control of the game from start to finish. The 5'11" lead guard is a jet with the ball in his hands. He has extremely quick hands, and is an absolute pest on the defensive end. He has a great feel for the game, and has a gift for finding teammates in both the half court setting, as well as in transition. When his jump shot is falling, he is nearly unguardable.He has offers from Missouri, Richmond, UMass, VCU, Virginia Tech, and Murray State.

2015 PF Skal Labissiere:

Another prospect who thoroughly impressed us was the 6'11" forward from Evangelical Christian School (Tn). He has great skills for such a young post player. He can hit shots out to three-point range, has a pretty baby hook shot on the block, and has great defensive instincts. At the Friday night workout, he had the media in attendance in a frenzy with a beauitful, contested fadeaway jumper from 18 feet. It was a pro move by a prospect who is definitely projecting as a future pro. He currently has offers from Kentucky and Memphis along with interest from Baylor, Tennessee, Auburn, UCLA, UConn, and DePaul.

2014 PG Ladarius Chester:

The Melrose High School (Tn) prospect burst onto the scene this past weekend with his performance at the 10aC Top 20 Elite Showcase. The 6'1" jumping jack has elite athleticism and explosiveness. He has an impressive frame and loves to use it when attacking the rim, where he finishes through contract. While his jumper is a work in progress, there is no denying that the tools are there for him to become a hot prospect over the coming months. Think former Syracuse star Jonny Flynn.

2013 SG Demetrius Dyson:

The 6'4" athletic wing is a hot comodity after recently decommitting from Lipscomb. He has a textbook jump shot, which is effective from both mid-range as well as long range. He rebounds well from the wing, and plays very good on-ball defense. He's flown very much under the radar after tearing his meniscus as a junior. However, schools are starting to catch on. He has recently heard from UMass, La Salle, Arkansas, and Tennessee State.

2015 SG Donte Fitzpatrick:

The 6'5" sophomore is without a doubt one of the best young prospects in the southeast region. He has a great feel for the game, is an efficient rebounder for a wing, and is a good scorer when slashing to the basket. If he continues to develop his jump shot, it's going to be interesting to see where Donte's game is at this time next year.

2014 SF Marcanvis Hymon:

The 6'7" Whitehaven High School (Tn) product is one of the premiere small forward prospects in the country. He showed off a consistent mid-range jump shot during the game. He is a relentless rebounder who thrives in a transition setting. While his dribbling skills need improvement, he has the tools to develop into a reliable forward at the next level. Currently, he has offers from Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Kansas State, Missouri, Memphis, Tennessee, Alabama, and UMass, among others.

2015 SG Khalil Spencer:

The 6'3" shooting guard is a physical specimen. He has a very strong frame, one which he uses to snatch rebounds on both the offensive and defensive end of the floor. He is also a scorer who can get hot in a hurry. A player with an endless motor, he loves to get out in transition and do damage as well. Definitely a prospect to keep an eye on.
