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 16U Boys division featured unknown young players from all over the South. All Day Elite won the championship 66-46 against Texas Dynasty in a 16U division with many talented players.

Let's take a look at some the feature players throughout the 16U division below:

Jacob Brown - 2021, PG of All Day Elite is a true floor general, controlling the tempo of the game, directing teammates, and making plays by getting into the paint. He has a strong handle and is great at creating separation off the bounce. Brown is quick, athletic, and very poised at the lead guard position. He uses his court vision to create opportunities for his teammates, and puts his team in a good position to come out on top each game.

Gannon Parker - 2021, C of All Day Elite is a big bodied post who is extremely strong. He has great footwork, runs the floor hard, and does all the little things right on both ends. He has a great touch around the rim, goes over his left and right shoulder equally well, and gets a lot of putbacks on the offensive end. Parker uses his size well, crashes the boards hard on both ends, and is a strong rim protector for his team.

Antoneo Pavia  - 2021, CG of All Day Elite is an elite shooter for his team. He proved over and over again that he is a consistent shot maker from outside. He showed off that he can score on all three levels, attacking the rim for tough finishes, as well as midrange pull-ups. Pavia is a big time scorer who can score from anywhere on the floor, and if he's open, you might as well count the shot.

Spencer Hutchinson - 2022, SF of Texas Dynasty is a strong player who happens to be a smooth operator when he has the ball in his hands. He can score at will, from any of the three levels. He attacked the rim with his efficient handle, pulled up from midrange, and even knocked down the outside shot for his team throughout the weekend. Hutchinson not only showcased his ball handling ability, but also his court vision, proving he can play any of the guard positions on both ends of the floor.

Cody Opoku-Darko - 2021, PG of Nike EAD is an athletic point guard with good ball skills and court vision. He has a great feel for the game, is crafty with his handle, and gets into the paint for various types of finishes around the rim. Opoku-Darko defends with intensity, applies pressure on opposing guards, and pushes the ball up the court quickly in the open court, especially after forced turnovers.

Devesh Lahoti - 2022, PG of the AYG Lakers is floor general who has great poise in the lead guard position. He handles the ball very well, doesn't fold under pressure, and is very skilled at creating separation for himself off the bounce. Lahoti showed off his court vision, his discipline on defense, and was a great leader for his team all weekend. He also showed off his ability to shoot the three ball consistently well, featuring some games where he knocked down 3-4 threes.

Robert Hodges - 2021, PG of The Program is a lead guard with a great first step. He's extremely explosive with it, has a crafty handle, and has great court vision to go with his scoring ability. Because he is such an efficient scorer, getting to lane or hitting outside shots, he creates open opportunities for his teammates. He is a crisp passer who hits his shooters right in their shooter's pocket for catch & shoot opportunities. 

Lorenzo Pearson IV - 2021, SF of the AYG Lakers is a strong power wing who loves and is willing to draw contact when attacking the rim. He rebounds well from the wing position, defends at a high level, and is always involved in hustle plays. Pearson gives his full effort every possession and his work ethic is contagious throughout the team. He can defend on all three levels with his strength and quickness.

Kendall Alexander - 2022, SF of Team BeGreat is a smooth ball handler who keeps defenders on their toes. He is a wing player who knows to run the floor wide, attacks the rim hard, and can shoot from outside. Alexander scores from all three levels and makes it look easy. He crashes the boards well from the wing position and is always getting after it. He's a true competitor for his team.

Caed Liebengood - 2021, F of Longview Pack is a 6'6 stretch foward who can really shoot the ball. He is a great pick & pop guy for his team, trails in the secondary, and just an overall great rim to rim runner. He sets strong screens which open himself up for the wide open shot. Liebengood is able to score inside because of his size, but also creates driving lanes for his teammates due to his shooting ability. He also is a strong rim protector for his team in the paint because of his length.
