The 14U division was loaded with tons of talent prospects looking to make a name for themselves.  Modern Basketball faced off against the Cy-Fair Kings in the championship and took home the title 73-54.

Julius Morris- PG 2022 (RL9) Morris is a lead guard who runs his team flawlessly.  He has good ball handling skills, court vision and loves using his quickness to create for others.  On ball defense is something he takes pride in and it resulted in him getting steals.  Coaches love having this type for floor gereneral as their leader due to he does it on both ends.  Solid overall performance on the weekend.

Frederick Payne- PG 2022, (LA Select Team Millsap) Payne is a good floor general who runs his team on both ends.

Nice overall performance on the weekend. 

Chancellor White- SF 2022, (Cy-Fair Kings) White is a Future150 camp alum. He has great size at 6-foot-4 inches, long arms and is a good athlete. He’s definitely one of the better prospects in the Texas 2022 class. He averaged 16 points and 9 rebounds over the course of the tournament as he lead his team to championship game.  Adding some weight and size to his frame is only going to make him better.

Jordan Denson- SF 2022, (Beaumont Thunder) Denson had a huge weekend both scoring and on defense. He has a nice frame and size which allowed him to be physical when slashing to the rim. Finishing through contact, making plays and rebounding are all things that stood out this tournament.

Isaiah King- G 2022 (Shadow Creek Shooting Stars) King had a very efficient weekend scoring and making plays.  He is a scrappy defender who rebounds well, runs the floor and can finish on the fast break.  If you leave him open, he proved he can score in a variety of ways. His attacking style of play made him a tough gurard. Heart and feel for the game are two things that stand out when you watch him play.
