Guntersville, AL (Future150) -- The 2019 Future150 Tournament Series was back for its 12th year and got started in Guntersville, AL at the Spring Grind Session.  The tournament featured players from all over the state of Alabama in 17U-12U Boys and 17U Girls.

The championship game featured 2 of the up and coming programs in North Alabama.  Carver Elite out of Huntsville and SSBA in its home court of Guntersville.  The game was tight in the first half with the half time score 12-16.  Carver Elite made a late push in the second half to seal the deal 36-26 and take home the title.

Lets check out the top performers in the 13U division and how they faired over the course of the weekend.

Justin McCall- PF 2024 of Carver Elite had a big Sunday afternoon leading his team to the championship.  His presence in the paint rebounding and scoring single handily kept his team in the game duing the first half. Long Arms, athleticism and the ability to finish around the rim helped him score 18 points in the championship game and lead his team to victory.  He takes home MVP Honors on the weekend.

Marquarius Reese- 2024, SF of TNA Heat is a big time athlete with a ton of upside to his game. Rebouding, scoring on the fast break and offensive rebounding is where he excels. Once his confidence is there and he plays the next play, look for this big time athele to take over games. He averaged 9.6 points and 8 rebounds for the weekend.

Bryson Fletcher- 2024, SG of SSBA is a feisty player who can flat out shoot the rock. He has a nice mid range jumper that you just don't see at this age. If you leave him open he can drop bombs from beyond the arc with regularity. He averaged 7.5 points and 2.5 steals.

Cooper Butler- 2024, F of SSBA was the most consistent scorer in the age group on the weekend.  He did a ton of damage from drawing fouls and making free throws.  Offensive rebounding, running the floor and dominating the paint are things coaches love when evaluating players.  He averaged 13 points and 7 rebounds per game on the weekend.

Justin Newby- 2024, PG of Carver Elite is a smooth lead guard with good court vision and can score on all three levels.  His on ball defense and team leadership are two traits of a winner.  Being coachable, knocking down shots and finishing at the rim are three attributes to his game that coaches love.  He averaged 10 points and 3.5 assist on the weekend in leading his team to championship.

Grey Williams- 2024, SG of TNA Heat is a big time shooter from the mid and long range. Running the floor, finding open spots and moving without the ball are what makes his shot making abilities stand out.  He average 2.5 threes per game and 9 points for the tournament.  As he becomes more aggressive on offense and defense look for his game to take next step.

Isaiah Roddy- 2024, PG of Carver Elite has a good feel for the game to go along with his ball skills.  Speed, court vision and making the open jumper were all things in his game that were on full display.  He averaged 7.5 points and 3.5 assists on the weekend.
