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 15U Championship featured 2 familiar foes in the Texas Elite and FOE 2021.  The game featured Future150 alum 2021 SF Donta Coady and PG Donerio Davenport who both attended the All Southwest Camp in March.  The game started off slow but picked up as the tempo increased.  Texas Elite was down early but made a run to take the lead at half 36-33.  The second half consisted of a few mini runs for both teams but in the end Texas Elite was too strong. They take home the title 59-51.

Touranament MVP: SF Donta Coady (Texas Elite)

All Tournament Team:

PG Donerio Davenport (FOE 2021)
PF Michael Ungu (FOE 2021)
PF Chandler Dickson (Team Peak Elite 2021)
SG Josh Watson (X-Elite)

Jalen Brown- 2021 PG (K-Town All Stars) Brown is a shifty point guard who has a good first step, lateral quickness and a great on ball defender. He can score on all 3 levels and has good court vision. What stood out in his game is his ability to break down his opponent and not only create for himself but others as well.  If you leave him open he proved he can make shots.  Solid overall performance on the weekend.

Markendrick Beall- 2021 PF (Longview Pack Elite) Bell is a beast on bothe the offensive and defensive boards. He is wide body who loves putting the wood to you when he is rebounding the ball. Efficiency, high motor an great footwork are things in the paint that stands out when you watch his game. He was hard to stop once he got the ball in his hands.  The old school style of play was a welcome site.

Michael Ungu- 2021 PF (Team FOE) Ungu is one of the better college prospects we saw on the weekend. He showed the cany ability to affect the game in the paint with rebounding and shot blocking. His footwork and finishing with either hand makes him a tough guard in the low post. At 6-foot-6 inches, his overall length, athleticism and high motor allow him to be very aggressive in the paint. He averaged a double double on the weekend.

Mekhi Collins- 2021 C (The Program) Collins is a wiry, long and athletic prospect who makes plays on the low block. Don’t be fooled by his slight frame, he is tenacious, plays hard and is crafty around the rim when finishing. If you leave him open he can stretch his range to 15 feet where his shot is effective.  He’s averaged 15 points and 7 rebounds.

Cooper McCaulay- 2022 SG (Team Buckner) McCaulay is a fundamental player who has a good feel for the game.  He likes finding his spots and knocking down shots.  Scoring off the bounce and getting to the free throw line is something he did well all weekend.  Basketball IQ, being a team player and making plays for others are all things that stand out when you see him on the court.  

Jayden White- 2021 PG (K-Town AllStars) White is a floor general who can make plays off the bounce and in the half court. He has good ball handling skills, quickness and can get anywhere he chooses on the court. His overall court vision allows him to set up his teammates for easy buckets.  Playing with poise, being coachable and being a team leader are what stood out when you watch him play.

Josh Watson- 2021 SF (X-Elite) Watson at 6-foot-2 inches has a nice fundamental game. He is a smooth lefty with a nice mid range jump shot.  Feel for the game, shooting the 3-pointer and putting the team before himself are all things he does well. This sneaky athletic and high basketball IQ D1 college prospect is fun to watch when he is engaged in the game.  As he gets more aggressive and stronger look for the light to come on.

Chandler Dickson- F 2021 (Team Peak Elite 2021) Dickson is a stretch 4-man with a scoring mentality who can score both inside and out. Soft hands, solid footwork and a nice feel around the basket makes him a tough guard. He can definitely score on all three levels and is very fundamentally sound. He uses his size to his advantage in the paint. He averaged 16 pts and 8 rebounds on the weekend.

Jaden Lloyd- 2021 PG (MBS) Lloyd is a big time shooter from beyond the arc. If he gets hot he can score in bunches and did so in his first pool play game where he knocked down 6 threes. Moving without the ball, finding his spots and creating plays in transition are things you like in his game.  His overall consistency and being coachable are what stood out the most.

Donta Coady- 2021 SF (Texas Elite) Coady is a familiar face to Future150 again.  Last time we saw him he lead his team to victory in the DFW Spring Showcase.  He was back at it again this weekend. This athletic wing has a ton of bounce and is one of the better finishers at the rim. The three point shot has improved over the last 3 months to go along with a nice mid range jumper. He only gets better every time we see him. He takes home MVP honors. #D1Prospect

Donerio Davenport- 2021 PG (Team FOE) Davenport is a Future150 Camp alum who is one of the more impressive athletes we have seen this summer.  His aggressive style attacking the basket make this smooth lefty tough to stop once he gets downhill on you. He is very efficient with his dribbles to the basket and can finish above the rim. As his shot mechanics improve so will his jump shot consistency.  Future D1 athlete for sure.
