Humble, TX (Future150) -- The Future150 Houston Camp came to an end on Sunday with its culmination being the Top 20 All-Star Game, which showcased the camps best players.

With the camp fielding over 100 prospects, these 20 players demonstrated hard work and great skills which landed them in the game.

It ended in a hard fought battle which ended in a score of 52-47. Louisiana native Dominic Magee controlled the game from beginning to end. He knocked down four three-pointers on his way to 17 points and five assists. Magee holds high major interest from Georgetown, Houston, Arizona and Oklahoma.

Other players who stood out included Paul Thomas, Leon Gilmore III, and Zachary Brown

Here is a rundown of other standouts...

Dominic Magee- (2014 SG) -  Dominic had some buzz behind his name before he even entered the gym and he lived up to the hype.  He showed the ability to score on all three levels and get any shot that he wanted all weekend. Dominic’s long arms and lateral quickness allow him to be a great on ball defender and a really good rebounder from the guard position.  He was probably the most consistent 3-point shooter in the camp.

Jo Jo Anderson- (2015 PG) -  Jo Jo was another person all the kids in the gym were aware of, and for good reason.  He’s a pass first point-guard that knows how to create for himself as well.  Jo Jo used his nice ball-handling skills and quick change of pace to get into the lane all weekend. On a side note, Jo Jo’s dad stands 6-foot-8, so he still has room to grow. However, even if he doesn’t, at 6-foot-2, he will be just fine as a point guard.

Zachary Brown- (2014-SG, South Kent) - Zach Brown is a kid in which we were familiar with from last year and he has really improved his overall game in that time frame.  Zach showed that his a reliable shooter and can knock down the three with consistency.  Zach can guard the one, two, and three positions, and his long arms make him a good shot-blocker and rebounder.  He will be attending South Kent Prep next year where he will fill the shoes of star 2013 shooting guard Ricardo Ledo.

Christian James- (2015-SF, Bellaire) -  Christian James may have been the biggest surprise of the entire camp.  He came out of nowhere to be one of the best players at the camp.  Christian can score in a variety of ways and has a big body that allows him to take contact and finish in the lane. Christian is always in attack mode, and that makes him so much harder to guard. He was always on the offensive boards as well. This will not be the last time you here about Christian James on the national level.

Paul Thomas- (2015-SF. Summercreek) - Paul is as complete as they come in the tenth grade. He is a 6-foot-8 power forward who can get the ball off the rim and start the break by pushing it in transition, block and alter shots in the paint, and use an array of moves or face-up game to score on the block. Paul also plays hard on both ends of the floor.  The schools watching his development are Texas A&M, Arizona, and South Carolina currently.

Leon Gilmore- (2014-SF, Manvel) - The 6-foot-6 inch lefty showed that he can blow by bigger defenders and get to the rim. He also likes to post up smaller defenders and score on the block. Leon also used elite jumping ability to separate himself from the rest of the pack all weekend long.  Definitley one of the more gifted athletes with a high ceiling who will only get better as time goes on.

Etorrian Wilridge- (2015-SF, Beaumont Central) -  Etorrian has a unique mix of skill, finesse, and athleticsm.  At 6-foot-5 he uses his long wingspan to block shots on defense and finish around the rim on offense.  Etorian can also put the ball on the floor and get to the basket as well which make him that much harder to guard.

Marcelious Green - (2013-SF, Spring) - Marcelius may have been the most physical player at the camp. He used his strength to dominate all weekend long and his college-ready frame allowed him to finish with contact.  Marcelius was also a versatile defender guarding everywhere from the point guard position to 6-foot-8 forwards and he always held his own.

Justin Hollins- (2014-PF, Cypress Woods) - Justin showed us a lot of good things this weekend at the camp.  He showed the ability to score in the post, he ran the floor with the guards on the break, and he also rebounded and blocked every shot in his vicinity. Justin also showed a lot of promise and the sky is the limit for how good and dominant he can be in the future.

Nate Nahirny- (2015-PG, Cy-Fair) - Nate has elite ball-handling skills and passing ability. He really knows how to run a team and get everyone involved and does it with a little bit of flare.  You can just tell when the ball in his hands he is comfortable and makes all the right decisions.  He is a coaches dream and plays the game with a high basketball IQ.  Don't sleep on his scoring ability either due to he can score in bunches.

K.J. Hill- (2015-PG, Bryant) - K.J. is definitely one of the best players in his age group. Even though he’s a 2015 prospect, he’s still only 14 years old and played years beyond his age. He has a nice handle that allows him to get wherever he wants on the floor in order to use his accurate mid- range jump shot. K.J. is also one of the bigger, more physical guards in his class and won the Division I AAU national championship this summer with Dunk Dog for the 8th grade division.
