Dallas, TX (Future150) -- On day 2 of the Primetime Sports Nationals, two more players stood out for CMB, while others also made themselves known to the Future150 staff. With a number of close games, this division should come down to the wire.

Blake Gordon, 2017 SF, Katy All-Stars: Gordon was a major reason that the Katy All-Stars almost came all the way back against what looks to be the toughest team in CMB Assault. He has good size for his position and is able to create scoring opportunities for both himself and his teammates. Gordon also has a solid basketball IQ and has the ability to make players around him better.

Ryan Alexander, 2017 SG, CMB Assault: Alexander was all over the floor on Friday, grabbing rebounds and finishing at the rim through contact. He has a solid frame and rarely shys away from defenders when attacking the rim. His ability to do a little bit of everything on the floor cannot be overstated.

Luke Hippler, 2017 SG, CMB Assault: CMB has a talented squad and with Hippler stretching defenses with his shooting ability, the rest of the team has room to maneuver in the paint. He is a long and active wing that is deceptively athletic and rebounds the ball fairly well for his position. What really makes him stand out is his release and his ability to punish defenses with the long ball. If CMB is going to win it all, they will need his strong play to continue.

Darius Johnson, 2018 SG, Up-tempo Basketball: Johnson did a good job of attacking the rim in transition and using his athleticism to his advantage. He is a lanky prospect with a ton of upside as long as he continues to grow and develop. Once he improves his jump shot he will be a monster to guard but for right now he is holding his own while playing up.

Langdon Williams, 2017 SF, Trifecta Elite: Upside is the key word to use when talking about the 6-foot-5 leaper. The long and lanky southpaw was impressive around the rim on Friday, finishing several plays above-the-rim with crowd pleasing dunks. The combination forward has the ability to handle the basketball in the open floor and is a creative passer as well. Once his jump shot improves, look out!

Cornelius Brown, 2018 PF, Up-tempo Basketball: Brown is physically ready to play at the 15U level and he showed it on Friday afternoon. The bruising big man did a good job of mixing it up in the paint and using his size to create space and scoring opportunities for himself. He is also surprisingly quick for a player of his size and was able to make a couple of moves from the baseline, as well as the high post.

D.J. Sims, 2018 PG, Southwest Elite: Playing up an age group in 15U, the true lead guard was extremely impressive on Friday afternoon. Since seeing him last in February, he has vastly improved his on-ball defense, creating several steals during action today. He also was a vocal leader for his team even though he was the youngest player on the team. He is at his best when distributing the ball, but is a proven scorer as well. The Oklahoma prospect continues to improve, and we like where he is at in his development right now.

Tre Flowers, 2017 PG, Regulators: An extremely smooth lead guard at 5-foot-11, Flowers was impressive with his overall demeanor on the floor. He controlled the tempo of the game from start to finish on Friday afternoon, and he was instrumental for his team in their close victory over EOTO. He is equal parts scorer and distributor, depending on the situation. Keep an eye on the guard this coming winter at A&M Consolidated (TX).

Brandon Reeves, 2017 C, Trifecta Elite: An explosive finisher, the 6-foot-5 post had two big dunks during his game on Friday afternoon. While he is raw on the offensive end, he runs the floor extremely well, has good coordination & has soft hands in the post. His release on his jump shot looks smooth out to 15 feet, and once he starts hitting with regularity, he will become a better overall prospect, regardless of future growth.

JoirDon Nicholas, 2017 PF, TNBA: The 6-foot-5 post is just scratching the surface of his considerable potential. On the defensive end, he is a very good help-side defender, altering several shots. While his offensive game has a ways to go, he showed an ability to finish plays around the rim and he also ran the floor well.
