Lewisville, TX (Future150) -- The Future150 was back in Dallas for its 3rd annual Battleground tournament.  The tournament featured teams from 4 different states and tons of young talent.  Dallas is one of the hotbeds for talent in the Southwest and it did not disappoint.

The 16U Championship game featured a team from Louisiana the Hurricanes versus a Texas squad called Team Peak Elite 2021.  The unique things about this game was the Hurricanes got the title game with only 5 players all weekend long.  The game was back and forth and only a two point game at the half 33-31.  The second half feature a late run with 4 minutes to go spear headed by SF Levert Davis of the Hurricanes.  They went on to take the title 64-57.

Tournament MVP- SF Levert Davis (Hurricanes)

All Tournament Team: 

PG Jaeden Russell (Hurricanes)
G Chandler Dickenson (Peak Pacers Elite)
SG Luke Cannaday (The Program)
SF Quienton Johnston (

J’don Garcia- 2020 PG (K-Town AllStars) Garcia showed a good first step, speed and lateral quickness when guarding the ball.  His court vision and ball handling skills to make plays when attacking the basket. He uses his high basketball IQ to get his team involved and is a threat from beyond the arc.  His team goes as he goes so being a leader is something he does well.

Jaeden Russell- 2020 PG (Hurricanes) Russell can definitely get hot from the three point line. He is a deep range shooter that can also attack the basket aggressively. He uses his speed to get by his defenders and moves well without the ball. Breaking down his defender off the dribble, finishing at the rim and creating for others are things he does extremely well. He averaged 13 points and 4 assists on the weekend.

Levert Davis- 2020 SF (Hurricanes) Davis was one of the top college level prospects we saw this past weekend. He has a nice frame, long arms and is a good athlete. He plays above the rim on both ends and is one of the better shot blockers at 6’5” we’ve seen this summer.  He has good ball handling skills and can stretch his game to the three point line where he made several on the weekend. Averaging 17 points per game and 13 rebounds this LA native takes home MVP honors.

Chase Landers- 2020 SG (Amarillo Bulldawgz) Landers has quick feet, speed to burn and athleticism when attacking the rim.  His ball handling skills allow him to get anywhere on the floor he chooses. Making plays and dropping dimes as he attack the basket is something he does reall well. Transition basketball is when he did most of his damage on the weekend.

Semaj Armstead- 2020 SG (The F.I.R.M) Armstead is a very athetic wing who can score in bunches.  His ability to put the ball on the floor and attack his defender make him a tough guard.  High flying dunks and playing at rim level is what he showed us this past weekend. He also runs lanes well in transition and finishes well at the rim.  As his shot develops consistency, look for his game to take the next step.

Chandler Dickenson- 2020 G (Peak Pacers Elite) Dickenson was one of the better overall scoring guards in the tournament.  He can score quick and in bunches if you are not up on him.  Scoring and finding his teammates in transition is where he excelled. If you leave him open he proved he can make the long range bomb.  He averaged 17 points and 4 rebounds for the touranment.

Da’Quandre Bernard- 2021 PG (The F.I.R.M) Dernard is a lead guard who has the scoring abilities to play either guard position on the floor. His ability to make play with his court vision, shot making and being a leader is what helps his team win. Scoring in transition and making the open jumer are what he did best. He averaged 16 points and 4 assists in the tournament.

Luke Cannaday- 2020 SG (The Program) Cannaday is a fundamental player who makes all the right plays.  He can score on all levels and is especially effective when shooting the open jumper. Making plays in transition, moving without the ball and knocking down the mid range jumper are all things his game had on display this pas weekend.

Quentin Johnston- 2020 SF (K-Town All-Stars) Johnston is an intriguing wing prospect with good size at 6-foot-5 inches. Sneaky bounce, finishing above the rim and making open jumpers are all things he does well. He showed the cany ability to play both in the paint and beyond the arc which something you don't see a lot. 

Omari Bobbitt- 2020 SG (The Program) Bobbitt is a do it all type player and loves gettting out on the fast break where he excels. He played greatt on ball defense and rebounded well from the wing position. He averaged 13 points and 4 assists for the tournament.  Coaches love having thisy typle of player on their team due to they can count on them at all times. 

Cameran Grimes- 2020 SG (Run B.C. Rebels) Grimes has a nice weekend on both ends of the floor.  He scored on all three levels and was efficient while doing it.  He can rebound the ball well on the defensive glass and has the ball handling skills to start the break.  His overall performance helped keep his team in games all tournament long.
