Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- The two most powerful 14U teams in the Future150 Main Event Atlanta went toe-to-toe Sunday afternoon for a championship and bragging rights in the state of Georgia.

The Georgia Fury and Georgia Stars had the gym buzzing with their back-and-forth battle that had everyone on the edge of their seats. In the end, the Fury held on for a 58-56 victory in one of the best games of the entire tournament. 

Here are a few of the days standouts in middle school action...

Collin Sexton, 2017 PG, Georgia Fury:

The 5'7" Cat Barber look-a-like has several similar playing qualities of the N.C. State commit as well. He is lightning quick with the ball in his hands, and has has the ball on a string. His outside jump shot was falling on championship Sunday, which helped him guide his Georgia Fury to the 14U championship.

Josh Burke, 2017 PG, ELW Future Stars:

The point guard plays with composure every time he steps onto the court. He knows how to run his team, and gets his teammates involved when they need the ball most. He is also a knock-down jump shooter and showed good consistency on his shot all weekend. He also possesses good ball skills.

Luis Hurtado2017 PG, Team Forrest:

Mark my words. The 6'5" Venezuelan is going to be one of the best point guards in the state of Georgia in his class. He is a savvy floor general who has excellent feel for the game. He can score at the rim using his length and plays with great pace each and every time he is on the floor. He is also a solid jump shooter. However, his bread and butter is his playmaking ability.

Deon Jackson, 2017 SF, Atlanta South Knights:

The small forward played consistent basketball all weekend for his team. Where he excelled most was on the inside, where he used his physical style of play to corral rebounds and finish at the basket. He also showed a solid mid-range jump shot and ran the floor extremely well.

Dalvin White2017 PG, Georgia Stars:

The 5'6" lead guard is a natural point guard. He is always in control of his team. He has a lightning quick first step and gets to the rim at will. He also possesses a beautiful floater in the lane and a reliable outside jumper. He is also skilled when finishing at the rim with or without contact.
