Houston, TX (Future150) -- In the 16U title game, Team NOLA used an athletic and physical brand of basketball in order to capture a championship Sunday afternoon, taking down a big Oklahoma Impact team.

The most impressive prospect in the game was Helen Cox (LA) sophomore wing Roydell Brown of Team NOLA. While undersized right now for the small forward position at 6-foot-3, his long limbs and athleticism make him a standout on the floor. He is always in attack mode and thrives when slashing to the basket.

In a losing effort, 6-foot-7 sophomore small forward Chandler Haley had an impressive tournament of is own. The multi-skilled wing showed the ability to play both inside and out last weekend, making him an attractive prospect with further development. In one game Saturday, he scored 16 points to lead him team to victory, showing off good court vision, and outside touch from the perimeter, and good footwork around the rim.

Other standouts from the weekend...

Deshon Scott, 2016 SG, Team Texas-Houston: The 6-foot-2 guard showed an ability to score the basketball any way you wanted from the perimeter this past weekend. Whether he was catching and shooting, taking his defender off-the-dribble, or pulling up in transition, he knocked down shots and displayed a smooth release in the process. We saw him at our Future150 Houston Camp last summer, and he has made significant strides in his game since then.

Angel Trevino, 2016 CG, No Fear: The 6-foot guard had an impressive weekend in Houston. In a blowout victory on Saturday, he grinded his way to 23 points, scoring in a variety of ways. Aggressive slashes to the bucket, mid-range jump shots, and an ability to get to the free throw line helped his high-scoring effort, which is what you can expect from the hard working guard game in and game out.

Darbine Thomas, 2016 SG, Missouri City Ballers: Thomas is a solid shooter who did his best to keep his team close in an early morning battle on Saturday. He found his way into space in got open in order to get his shot off. Thomas also got to the rim on a few occasions and was able to finish.

Nikko Thomas, 2017 SF, Pearland Elite: Thomas is just starting to realize how good he can be, he has good size and athleticism and scored in a variety of ways as Pearland got a well-earned victory on Saturday.  He has good upside and will be one to watch down the line. 

Terrell Jackson, 2016 SG, Shooting Stars: Jackson showed off an impressive stroke from beyond the arc on Saturday, knocking down a number of threes. He also showed that he can take his man off the bounce as well. 

Kilam Palmer, 2016 PG, Missouri City Ballers: The 6-foot Palmer is an explosive prospect in a transition setting. He is also very good at creating off-the-dribble and getting into the paint, where he knows how to finish against contact. Speed is the name of the game with this sophomore point man.

Elis Benjamin, 2016 PF, Team Texas-Houston: The bouncy 6-foot-4 forward may not be the biggest prospect on his team, but he uses his long arms, high motor, and athleticism to be a double-double threat every single time he's on the floor. Superb weekend for the sophomore
