Houston, TX (Future150) -- On Sunday afternoon, it came down to a thrilling battle of Houston powers in the championship game in eighth grade. After being down by 15 points at half to Basketball University, the Franchize All-Stars stormed back to an 82-72 victory in order to capture the 14U Championship at the 2014 Future150 Houston Main Event.

The driving force for Franchize was 2018 forward D.J. Williams-Weaver, an enforcer in the paint and a top 20 player in the class nationally. The 6-foot-7 physical specimen controlled the game with his shot-blocking and rebounding ability, as well as his penchant for finishing around the rim. 

For Basketball University, pint-sized 2019 point guard Sahvir Wheeler led the way all tournament long for his team. His ball skills for his age are second-to-none and he has a fantastic feel for the game as well. Once his body begins to grow and develop, he will become an absolutely lethal floor general.

Other standouts from the weekend...

Devin Harrison, 2018 PF, HangTyme: The 6-foot-2 power forward made his mark this past weekend by bullying around opponents in the paint. He is an extremely physical kid who has a very high motor as well. Next on his to-do list will be to add some perimeter skills to his arsenal. However, if he continues to grow, he could become a very good forward at the high school level.

Kobe Wilson, 2018 PG, Franchize All-Stars: The 6-foot combo guard burst onto the scene this past weekend with his explosive and smooth game. Reminiscent of a young JaQuan Lyle, the sturdy guard has ample quickness and a high IQ on the floor. He is at his best when he is attacking in transition or slashing to the basket for impressive finishes using both hands. The sky is the limit for the young guard.

Andrew Rios, 2018 PG, San Antonio Apaches: One of the most impressive ball-handlers we saw this past weekend was the 5-foot-6 San Antonio product. His court vision and shifty nature caught the attention of our staff and had fans in the stands on the edge of their seat. Once he improves his jump shooting, he will be hard to stop at the high school level.

Drake Everist, 2018, Basketball University: The sharp-shooting guard helped to lead his team to an afternoon victory with an 18 point performance. He also created his own shot and was able to get to the rim a bit as well.

Kyle Slater, 2018 SF, Basketball University: Slater is an athletic slasher that can also shoot it as well. He has good size and length and is an active player. There is a lot of potential to his game and with further development he could become a monster down the line.

Jonathan Cisse, 2018 CG, Acadiana Stars: Cisse is quick guard that can put his defender on his hip and get to the rim. He has a slender frame but is deceptively strong and is above average defender because of it.
 

Vernon Harrell, 2018 PF, Houston Next Pro: Few players in the tournament can match Harrell’s rebounding prowess, as he pulled down 18 boards in their first game. The forward also showed that he can score around the rim and moves well up and down the floor. 

Anfernee Haynes2019 SG, San Antonio Gators: Haynes is as talented of a scorer as anyone in the 14U division this past weekend. On Friday night he had 22 en route to a monster win to start off the tournament. Throughout the weekend he did more of the same, as he was one of his team's top scorers each time out. 

Tayvion Peavey, 2019 PG, Clutch City:  Peavey was a solid point guard throughout the weekend, setting his teammates up for easy baskets and getting to the rim.

Trajan Wesley, 2018 PG, Basketball University: Great scorer and lead guard. Can play off the ball as good as with the ball. Scored 30 plus in Future 150 Main Event Houston 14U Championship game knocking down free throws and shots in the open court on pull ups, floaters, and jumpers.  Nice range out to the three point line, also shoots the three ball off the dribble.  Competes hard on defense as well.  Nice overall polish to his game.  Good athlete who uses it to his advantage.

I agree!  Trajan W. Was on fire against the newly developed FA. He lead the game with his high IQ and quickness. BU had gotten defeated by FA Friday night by 30. He had awaken and the beast came out. Future 150 please rank accurately and not go by who you know. Your judgement/rankings will be watered down for the game.  Stop going by height and go by the IQ and completeness. Seriously!  I have seen guards 5’9 and under kill the game with no recognition!  Oops!  My bad you all are a new ranking system. Keep developing F150:-)
