Dallas, TX (Future150) -- The 2019 Future150 Tournament Series was on the road again this past weekend, and the fifth stop was Dallas, TX. The Dallas Battleground Event has been one of Future150’s top stops in its series due to all of the talent in the Dallas area. The 15U Boys division featured unknown young players from all over the South. Drive Nation North won the championship in a 15U division with many talented players.

Let's take a look at some feature players throughout the weekend in the 15U Division below:

Jayce Spann - 2023, CG of Drive Nation North is a master of the transition game as he does most of his damage that way. His athleticism and speed allows him to get out in front of defenses to score at the rim. He is very active on the defensive end, forcing turnovers with his active hands which lead to transition opportunities for himself and his teammates. Spann also showed he can consistently knock down the outside shot when left open as he featured some 20+ point games this weekend.

Damondre McKnight - 2023, PG of Drive Nation North is a steady floor general with a high basketball IQ which he uses to pick defenses apart. He has great court vision and sees plays before they even happen. McKnight has a strong handle which limits his turnovers and gets him wherever  he wants to go on the floor. While McKnight is more of a pass first guard and defender, he has the ability to score efficiently when his team needs him to. He was a strong player for the 15U division.

JR Robertson - 2022, CG of J-Unit is an athletic, strong guard who is more of a power guard. He absorbs contact very well when attacking the paint, has point guard skills, and attacks immediately off the break. Robertson sees the floor well, makes plays when getting into the paint, and can score in a variety of ways. He defends with intensity and forces turnovers which lead to transition opportunities for his team. 

BJ Marshall - 2022, F of J-Unit is a big-bodied, back to the basket post player who marks his territory in paint every possession. He is a power player that runs the floor well and is active on both ends of the floor. Marshall has strong power moves in the paint with a great touch around the rim. He sets bruising screens for pick and roll opportunities, rolls to the basket, and finishes through contact. He is also a skilled rim protector and rebounds hard on both ends of the floor.

Isaiah Williams - 2022, SG of the BTA Bulls is an athletic guard who can score from all over. He's quick, has speed up the floor with and without the ball. He moves great without the ball, slashes the open spots, and makes defenses pay if they don't communicate effectively. Williams played hard-nosed defense, forcing some turnovers, and scored in transition very well. He fought every possession, shot the ball well, and made plays as if he were a point guard at times.

Garrett Alcock - 2022, SG of the Texas Tarheels is a very consistent shooter who knocks shots down from 15 feet out. He does the little things right and plays the game the right way. He sprints the floor wide, slashes to the basket, and has superb ball handling ability to attack and create space for shots. Alcock has a high basketball IQ and plays fundamental, disciplined defense for his team as well.
