Reading, PA (Future150) -- On Friday night at the Bollman Center on the campus of Albright College, the 2013 HoopGroup Reading Tip-Off Showcase kicked off with four quality teams from the region battling each other.

Both games came down to the wire, with Bishop McNamara (MD) knocking off Berks Catholic (PA) 52-44 and Chester (PA) holding on to beat Reading (PA) 60-53.

All four squads showcased premier talent, and here is who stood out to Future150...

Jamir Moultrie2017 PG, Bishop McNamara (MD): The MVP of the first game, Moultrie scored 27 points on 9-15 shooting from the floor. The 6-foot point guard was nearly flawless on the floor, showing impressive defensive skills, the ability to read defenses, and excellent speed in the open floor. While it's early, it's easy to tell that the D.C. Assault prospect is a high major kid.

Meme Burdine, 2014 SG, Reading (PA): The senior shooting guard was pivotal in the Red Knights attack, and it almost payed with with a big upset of Chester. The 6-foot-1 wing is wired to score the basketball, and his punishing drives were difficult for the Clippers to stop all night. When the dust cleared, he scored 22 points in a variety of ways, and showed that he is the unquestioned leader of this young Reading team.

Nana Foulland, 2014 PF, Berks Catholic (PA): The 6-foot-9 Bucknell commit was the MVP for Berks Catholic, and with good reason. He single-handedly kept his team in the game all night, finishing through double and triple teams in the post, while also rebounding extremely well in traffic. The hard worker is going to be a standout in the Patriot League, and the Bison should be extremely happy about landing him. He finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds.

Lonnie Walker, 2017 SG, Reading (PA): We've seen the future of eastern Pennsylvania basketball, and his name is Lonnie Walker. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard has all the tools to become a high major recruit, and while it's early, he could become one of the best players to ever come through the storied Red Knights program. His clutch play in a big game atmosphere was most impressive, and his future is extremely bright. He finished with 7 points and 5 rebounds.

Tyrell Sturdivant, 2014 PF, Chester (PA): If Chester plans to content for a AAAA state title this season, it will rest on the shoulders of their 6-foot-8 power forward, a Stony Brook commit. He certainly shouldered the load for the Clippers on the interior Friday night, finishing with 17 points and 10 rebounds, taking advantage of the small front line of Reading. It's been a great start to the season for the forward, who has been a double-double machine.

Connor Jack, 2015 F, Berks Catholic (PA): While it wasn't his best offensive game, it's easy to see why division one programs are tracking the 6-foot-7 forward. A rebounding machine with a high basketball IQ, Jack snagged 12 rebounds on the night. He also showed the ability to be an excellent passer on the floor, and can finish around the rim with either hand. Highly skilled prospect.

Khary Mauras, 2016 PG, Reading (PA): The 5-foot-11 point guard was extremely impressive for the Red Knights. The sophomore filled the stat sheet with 5 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists on the night. He was in control of the game from start to finish, and the gritty guard showed that he will be the point guard of the future for Reading for the next three years. Excellent night for the young prospect.

Marquis Collins, 2016 SF, Chester (PA): It wasn't a very good night for the 6-foot-7 forward, but the future is bright for the young prospect. He has all the tools to develop into a high major wing, and with the right training, he will develop into one of the top prospects in the country by the time his senior season rolls around.
