Houston, TX (Future150) -- The Future150 Battleground tournament was back in Houston for the 3rd straight year looking for college potential players.  The 17U division was loaded with them. Teams from 3 different states littered the division. 

The 17U Championship game featured the Houston Raptors (TX) and Crossover Elite (TN).  The game was tight the entire way with the Raptors making a few big shots down the stretch to pull out a victory 71-65.

Let's take a look at the top performers on the weekend and who made the all-tournament team.

Tournament MVP: SG Chris Green (Houston Raptors)

All-Tournament Team:

PG Edwin Cooper (Talon Elite)
PG Donte Horne (Crossover Elite)
SG Brad Milliorn (Houston Raptors)
SF John Marshall (SC Shooting Stars)
 

Edwin Cooper- 2019 PG (Talons Elite) Cooper has great speed, quickness and plays with a high motor.  Shooting the ball with consistency from the 3-point line is something he does well. His quick release allows him to get his shot off against bigger players. Athleticism and craftiness allow him to get to the rim pretty easy when he needs to score.  Solid overall showing in the tournament.

Dontae Horne- 2019 PG (Crossover Elite) Horne is a lead guard that every coach wants running their team.  He has great court vision and gets his teammates in good position to score. Good size, high energy, and team leader are things that describe him best. His on-ball defense and overall motor make him fun to watch.

Avant Woods - 2019 SG (Swag Elite) Woods has an aggressive style of play and plays with intensity the entire game. His overall aggression creates opportunities not only in the transition but at the free throw line as well. He is a scrappy player with quick hands and loves mixing it up on the offensive glass. Being around the ball at all times creates second-chance points for himself and his team.

Mathew Guidry- 2019 SG (Houston Raptors) was a high motor kid every game. Lengthy guard with athleticism that uses every bit of it. Runs his lanes in transition and finishes strong at the rim. Comfortable with the ball in the open court and helped his team win the Championship this weekend.

Chris Green- 2019 PG (Houston Raptors) Green was one of the best scoring point guards we saw on the weekend.  At 6-foot-3 inches tall, this D1 prospect can flat out play the position at a high level.  His ability to get into the lane and create not only for himself but his teammates makes him special.  If you leave him open, he will make you pay from distance.  He averaged 17 points and 5 assists for the tournament.

Tyrell Partee- 2019 G (Crossover Elite) Partee was a nightmare on the fast break.  He used is speed, quickness and athleticism when attacking the rim.  Body control, craftiness around the rim and leadership are all thing that stood out in his game.  If you leave him open from distance, he proved he can make shots.

Marcus Hill- 2019 CF (Scholar Athletes Select) Hill is a tweener at the forward position. Athleticism, length, and positioning allow him to play and guard multiple positions.  Offensive rebounding is one thing he did really well and it created more opportunities for his team. He averaged a double-double over the course of the tournament. #Hustle

Jiwen Taylor- 2019 SG (Hyperfuse) Taylor is a threat when he has the ball in his hands. His ball handling and attack mentality helps him when looking to score. The up tempo style of play is where he excelled as he did most of his damage in transition. Quickness, on ball defens and feel for the game are three things he does well. Solid performance all weekend long. 

Jordan Marshall- 2019 SF (Shadow Creek Shooting Stars) Marshall is a beast on the boards. His atleticism, body control and overall will to attack the glass make him almost impossible to stop when getting rebound. He showed a nice mid-range jumper and is crafty around the rim when attacking. He went for 19 points and 11 boards in a big pool play game win.

Nate Harris- 2019 SG (Talons Elite) Harris is a professional scoring guard who can do it in bunches.  Scoring on all three levels is something he does well. In bracket play he had a huge game scoring 26 points and 3 assits in a tough loss.  If you need a bucket, this is the guy you want to give the ball too.  Solid overall performance on the weekend.

Bryan Morris- 2019 PG (Houston Raptors) is super fast lead guard with excellent court vision. His ability to break down his defender not only creates for himself but others as well. Lateral Quickness, quick hands and will to play defense makes him a nightmare to his opponent.  All coaches want a point guard like this due he runs the show and is alway under control making the right plays.  

Brad Milliorn- 2019 SG (Houston Raptors) Milliorn was one of the best 3-point shooters we have seen this Summer so far. He is athletic, runs the fast break lanes, and defends the ball well.  He hit 10 threes in the Final Four game. His energy is infectious and his teammates feed off his 3-point bombs. College Coaches don’t sleep on this 6’4” wing. #D1Prospect #KlayThompson
