Fort Wayne, IN (Future150) -- Indiana and Ohio proved to be kings of the annual 2013 Bill Hensley Memorial Spiece Run N' Slam on championship Sunday of the event.

In the 17U gold division, All-Ohio Red controlled the game from start to finish in their win over Memphis based Team Thad. Jae'Sean Tate and Javon Bess starred for All-Ohio all tournament long, and they dominated the championship game to cap off a strong weekend for their team.and themselves.

Indiana Elite was crowned champions in the both the 16U and 15U gold division title games, showing the strength of their program as a whole. 

Jalen Coleman is the most impressive long-term prospect for the program, and it's easy to see why. The 6'2" sophomore shooting guard is a silky smooth scorer on the wing and is one of the most highly purused wings in the country.

His backcourt mate, 2015 point guard Hyron Edwardsalso had a big weekend. Already holding offers from several high-profile B1G Ten programs, the 5'11" Edwards showed excellent court vision and and speed in the open floor. He is also a great kid off the court. 

The sleeper on the team is their their third guard, Hamilton Heights High School (IN) point guard Grant Weatherford. He's a kid who always plays with swagger on the floor, and has schools such as Indiana State already giving him a hard look. He's a solid athlete at 6'1", and he is always in attack mode.

In the 14U gold division title game, Indy Heat again proved the strength of the Hoosier State's basketball strength. Here are some individual standouts from the final day of action.

Sunday Standouts:

Brandon Key - 2015 PG, Milwaukee Rebels:

The 6'0" floor general had it going Sunday morning against Spiece Indy, scoring 17 points in a loss. His jump shot was falling, and his game grows with his confidence. He is an extremely shifty prospect who is hard to stay in front of. Expect division one schools to get involved with him very soon.

Trey Lyles - 2014 PF, Spiece Indy Heat:

The 6'8" big man came out a bit sluggish at the beginning of the weekend due to him coming off of injury. However, he picked up steam Saturday and Sunday, and was dominant when he wanted to be. He plays physical basketball with his big frame, and has deceptive foot speed and solid post moves. Overall good weekend for the top 15 recruit.

Chandler White - 2015 SG, Indiana Elite:

The first thing you notice about the 6'2" guard is his grown man frame. His is extremely muscular and looks the part of a high major guard. He was battling a nagging injury this weekend, but still showed enough flashes of his potential to impress the Future150 staff. B1G Ten schools are chasing him already.

JaQuan Lyle - 2014 PG, Spiece Indy Heat:

The 6'4" lead guard has an excellent frame and put it to work this weekend. He was punishing smaller guards, taking them off-the-dribble and to the rim where he would get fouled or would finish among big men at the basket. His court vision was also impressive. His final seven schools are Florida, Tennessee, Ohio State, Louisville, UCLA, Indiana, and Illinois.

Edward Morrow - 2015 Forward, Mac Irvin Fire:

The 6'7" Chicago star had one of the best motors of any prospect we had seen this past weekend. He is an explosive and physical prospect who was dominant in the paint when we watched him. The only concern for us right now is that he is a bit undersized for the power forward position. If he improves some of his perimeter skills like we expect him to, his stock will skyrocket. 

Craig Randall - 2015 PG, Ohio Basketball Club:

The 5'10" lefty controlled the pace for his 16U OBC team all weekend long. He is a solid ball-handler who has a consistent long-range jump shot. He balances his scoring and distributing very well and it left us very impressed by the sophomore.

James Blackmon2014 SG, Spiece Indy Heat:

The scorer had it going on Sunday, as he was torching All-Ohio Red in a fun semi-final matchup. The Indiana commitment scored 31 points on seven three's, and also had a few impressive dunks in the process. The 6'2" guard is also a solid defender and will be a good fit for Tom Crean's program.

Cody Schwartz - 2015 PF, Wisconsin Blizzard:

A long and athletic big man hailing from West De Pere High School (WI), the 6'8" forward owns both power and small forward skills. He can bang in the post on offense, but he is also effective with the ball in his hands when facing up. Physical on-ball defender as well. 

Dakota Mathias - 2014 SG, NW Ohio Basketball Club:

The 6'3" wing is a scoring machine, and he was on fire all weekend. He possesses an extremely quick release on his jumper, and isn't afraid to pull-up from anywhere on the floor. His big weekend became even bigger when he decided to commit to Purdue on Sunday after his NW Ohio Basketball Club was eliminated from Spiece.
