Dallas, TX (Future150) -- After winning our Future150 Main Event Dallas tournament last summer, Texas Elite-Got Skills (TX) returned to our 2018 Future150 DFW Spring Showcase to defend their crown, and succeeded. Gradually, they were able to wear down the HEB Storm (TX), winning 58-44 in the title game. Tournament MVP Kordelious Jefferson scored 10 points, but it was the play of TJ Burch that really provided the spark. He scored 21 points and could not be stopped from getting to the rim in the championship.

Future150 DFW Spring Showcase All-Tournament Team:

Kordelious Jefferson, Texas Elite-Got Skills (MVP)
Mark Rucha, HEB Storm 
TJ Burch, Texas Elite Got Skills
Nyout Arop, B.C. Running Rebels
Adrian Banks, Apex Tar Heels
Micah Robinson, Drive Nation 2024

Future150 DFW Spring Showcase Honor Roll List:

Kordelious Jefferson, 2023 G, Texas Elite-Got Skills (TX): The MVP of the division, the 5'10" guard filled the stat sheet every single game for his team, leading them to a championship. He scored double digits in every game of the tournament, including a 24 point explosion. He's a talented natural scorer who can get it done on all three levels. 

Mark Rucha, 2023 G, HEB Storm (TX): Aother talented prospect in the division was the 5'8" combination guard, who specializes in scoring the basketball. His ability was highlighted by two games in particular during the tournament, 26 and 17 point explosions in two victories for his HEB Storm team. 

Adrian Banks, 2023 SF, Apex Tar Heels (TX): A long and lanky 5'8" small forward prospect, he used his length and slashing skills to leave a lasting imprint on the tournament. While he isn't the most polished prospect right now, it's clear that he's going to develop into a very talented basketball player over the next couple of years. 

Micah Robinson, 2024 Post, Drive Nation 2024 (TX): A 6-foot post prospect with a mother who played collegiately at Georgia Southern, it's clear that he has the bloodlines to develop into a talented player in the future. Even at a young age, he's a talented scorer around the rim and rebounds well in his area. 

Senon Chapple, 2023 Post, HEB Storm (TX): The 5'9" post was one of the most versatile prospects in the division at the DFW Spring Showcase. Carrying a bulky frame, not only was he a player who controlled the paint and the glass, but he also showed that he can step out and knock down three's on a consistent basis. 

Jalen Shelley, 2024 SG, Drive Nation 2024 (TX): A lanky lefty in the 5'10" range, he was one of the most talented natural scorers in the division. When he's firing on all cylinders, he's very tough to stop, especially when he's attacking the rim. A confident prospect with a chip on his shoulder, he's going to become a very good player in time. 

TJ Burch, 2024 G, Texas Elite Got Skills (TX): While his teammate was named the MVP of the tournament in the division, the talented guard was undoubtedly the MVP of the championship game, where he scored 21 points and could not be stopped from getting baskets anywhere he wanted on the floor. Overall, it was a very impressive performance. 

Nyout Arop, 2024 Post, B.C. Running Rebels: Already nearly 6'1" with long limbs, the upside factor is pretty big for the Texas prospect. He's still very clearly a work in progress, but he's showing some very nice signs early on. He's learning to be tough on the inside, especially when rebounding in traffic. As he learns some post moves, he'll become a very good post player.
