Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- Georgia Achievers Academy capped off a very impressive weekend with a huge win over the East Point Runnin' Rebels in the 16U title game. 2019 PF Felix Uadiale and 2020 G/F Isaiah Placide both had dominant performances in the championship game that ultimately helped their team rise above everyone else, but it's Uadiale that walks away with the 16U MVP award!

Future150 Main Event Atlanta All Tournament Team: 

Felix Uadiale (MVP), Georgia Achievers Academy (GA)
Omar Ndengey, East Point Runnin' Rebels (GA)
Josiah Agnew, A-1 Elite (SC)
Charles Walker, Mississippi Kings (MS)
CJ Dixon, Ballin' Blazers (GA)

Future150 Main Event Atlanta Honor Roll List: 

Josiah Agnew, 2020 CG, A-1 Elite (SC): Agnew's feel for the game and dominant scoring stretches is what allows for him to make it onto this list. Standing around 6'1" he has very good size for a guard prospect his age, and he made sure he took advantage of his size by finishing over the top of smaller defenders on a consistent basis. The basketball IQ and skill set is there for Agnew to extend his basketball career beyond high school. 

Felix Uadiale, 2019 PF, Georgia Achievers Academy (GA): Uadiale set the tone from the very beginning of the weekend. He was never overpowered and showcased some impressive moves in the paint. His footwork has definitely improved since the last time we watched him, and is athleticism and high motor makes him a very intriguing LM/DII undersized post prospect. 

Ronald Randolph, 2020 SG, Wolverine Basketball Club (AL): Randolph was one of the best pure scoring guards in the division, getting off to a hot start by scoring an efficient 20 points to open the weekend. Even though he's not flashy, he got the job done when his team needed a basket at the most signifigant time.  

Justin Harris, 2020 PG, Ballin' Blazers (GA): Harris started off his weekend on a hot streak by scoring 28 points in the first pool-play game while hitting 7 three pointers. He attended Future150's Southeast Regional Camp this past summer and was impressive, but has only gotten better since then. It will be very fun to watch how he continues to develop over the next year. 

Omar Ndengey, 2020 PF, East Point Runnin' Rebels (GA): Ndengey was "Mr. Double Double" throughout the weekend at Main Event Atlanta. Standing nearly 6'6" with a very strong frame and he had no issues banging down low and playing through contact. The skill set is there for Ndengey, but it would be nice to see him grow another few inches before declaring him as a potential division one prospect. 

Andre Eason, 2020 PF, Memphis Royals (TN): Eason is a very familar face at Future150's exposure events, having attended multiple camps, we had a good idea about him coming into the weekend. An undersized four man, Eason always produces due to his upper-body strength, high motor, and great footwork in the paint. He has now added a very efficient mid-range jumper to his game, which only made him harder to guard. 

Sebian Tate, 2020 SF, Georgia Gymrats (GA): One of the focal points of one of the best teams in the 16U divison, Tate used his elite athleticism and speed to get to the rim and finish on a consistent basis. On the defensive end he was incredible, locking down multiple guys at different positions. Simply put, it was a blast to watch Tate when he was locked in. 

Vernon Jones, 2020 SG, NOLA Hurricanes (GA): Jones was one of the most productive and consistent guards in his age division throughout the weekend. Scoring around 20 points per game, he was a thorn in the opposing defense's side as he used his versatile scoring abilities to always keep the defense on their toes. With a little more growth and development, Jones could definitely be playing college basketball somewhere down the road. 

CJ Dixon, 2020 PF, Ballin' Blazers (GA): Upside is the name of the game for Dixon. Standing almost 6'7", his strength and length allowed him to make big time plays around the basket on both ends of the floor throughout the weekend. As he continues to work on a few go-to post moves, along with a short-range jumper, he's only going to get better. Definitely some D1-caliber potential with Mr. Dixon. 

Darien Wallace, 2020 PG, Mississippi Kings (MS): Wallace has been recognized as one of the best point guards in his class in his state, according to multiple Mississippi high school basketball websites. This weekend he certainly proved his worth as he was clearly one of the best floor generals in his division. His "slash-n-dish" style of play along with a smooth jumper and blurring speed in the open floor, made him extremely tough to stop. 

Isaiah Placide, 2020 SF, Georgia Achievers Academy (GA): Placide saved his best for last this weekend as he had his most dominant game in the 16U championship game against a very talented East Point Runnin' Rebels team. He dominated from mid-range and in, and really frustrated the defense by getting into the lane and drawing lots contact which led to opposing team foul trouble. It would be nice to see Placide grow a few more inches before he starts his junior high school season, but either way this kid is a stud. 

Jermaine Lattimore, 2020 SG, East Point Runnin' Rebels (GA): Arguably the best pure shooter in the entire event, it seemed like whenever Lattimore shot the ball from beyond the arc, it was going in. Standing just under 6-foot, he doesn't have the greatest size but he gets great lift on his jumper and utilizes the pump fake well in order to get easy points around the basket. 

Charles Walker, 2020 SG, Mississippi Kings (MS): Competing with Lattimore for "most-talented shooter" on the weekend, Walker had his fair share of games where he was absolutely on fire with his jump shot and at times it seemed like he was never going to miss. Once Walker adds more muscle to his frame and improves his handles, he will make for a very intriguing DII/LM college prospect. 

Conner Fisher, 2020 SF, HESE Wolverines (GA): Fisher doesn't have much flashiness to his game, but he gets the job done on both ends of the floor. Playing more of a stretch-four for the Wolverines, Fisher's deadliest weapon on offense was his three point jumper and ability to follow his missed shots on the offensive glass. His ability to play good, fundamental basketball is what lands him on the honor roll list. 

Shemar Dixon, 2019 PF, Wolverine Basketball Club (AL): Standing in the 6'5" range, Dixon is a bit undersized for the four spot. He used his motor and upper-body strength to dominate the glass and get baskets around the rim all weekend. On the defensive end he made sure he contested or disrupted any shot attempt that came his way in the paint. If Dixon grows another inch or two and continues to work on his skill set, he could definitely have potential at the NAIA/DIII level. 

Caleb Spann, 2020 CF, Memphis Royals (TN): Spann was one of the hardest working forward prospects in the 16U division. He would never shy away from contact when getting to the rim, and used his length and athleticism on defense to make easy shots around the rim very tough to come by. He has very good handles for a forward and also showed the ability to knock down the three off the catch and the dribble. 

Khyree Thompson, 2020 CG, Rock Nation Impact (SC): Thompson killed at last year's Future150 Main Event Charlotte Tournament, and this weekend he picked right back up where he left off. A natural born scorer who has plenty of flash and fanciness to his game, he scores his baskets in bunches and if you let him get hot, it's going to be hard to get him to cool down. 

Jaelyn Anderson, 2020 PG, Georgia United (GA): Anderson put on a show all weekend. His confidence and swagger on the offensive end, makes him very fun to watch. He's capable of taking over a game and turning it into a borderline blowout in a 2-3 minute span if you don't keep your eyes on him at all times. Standing at 6'0", Anderson has solid size for a floor general and there's no doubt he's got the talent and skill level to play at the collegiate level in the future.
