Charlotte, NC (Future150) -- In a 13U division that featured many prospects playing up an age group, the GC Ballers shined as they defeated Queen City Thunder in a very tight knit title game! The Ballers featured 2023 PG Aden Holloway who stole the show, while the Thunder featured 2022 CG Davion Cunningham that had a big time breakout weekend. 

Future150 Main Event Charlotte 13U All-Tournament: 

Aden Holloway, 2023 Guard, GC Ballers
Tre Green, 2022 Guard, Team United
Davion Cunningham, 2022 Guard, Queen City Thunder
JaMarcus Nance, 2023 Wing, NC Red Storm
Shane Fernald, 2022 F, GC Ballers

Future150 Main Event Charlotte 13U Honor Roll: 

Tre Green, 2022 PG, Team United (NC): Green stood out from night one with his fantastic scoring abilities from all three levels and his blurring speed in the open floor. His court vision and ability to finish through contact are just a few of the things that make him one of the best guards in his class out of North Carolina. There are big things in store for the floor general. 

JaMarcus Nance, 2023 Wing, NC Red Storm (NC): Playing up an age division, Nance was a dominant scorer and guarded multiple positions on the defensive end. Standing nearly 6'0" he has very solid size for a wing at his age, his length, and advanced skill set make him look like a very promising prospect in the 2023 class. Could be one of the best in North Carolina down the road. 

Aden Holloway, 2023 PG, GC Ballers (NC): Holloway has to be considered one of the best 2023 prospects on a national outlook at this point. His pure floor general skills and high IQ are extremely impressive for a player at his age. He plays well beyond his years and has smooth, crafty scoring abilities. This weekend was definitely Holloway's coming out party. 

Shane Fernald, 2022 F, GC Ballers: The close to 6'4" forward was the best player in the age division in Charlotte, and looks to be quite the prospect as well. He's a standout on the low block, with excellent footwork and post moves, but also shows ability when in the open floor as well. He can handle the ball and is a solid passer, projecting a future at a wing position.

Davion Cunningham, 2022 CG, Queen City Thunder (NC): Cunningham did one thing consistently throughout the weekend and that was scoring at an extremely high and efficient rate. Going up against a ton of super talented guards Cunningham held his own and led his team to the 13U title game before losing to a supremely talented GC Ballers squad. 

Daniel Hankins-Sanford, 2022 PF, Team United (NC): Sanford has potential galore. At 6'4" he has great size in the paint for a rising eighth grader. He used his length and motor to dominate the glass on both ends of the floor and also showcased the ability to knock down the short/mid-range jumper when left open. It's going to be fun tracking Hankins-Sanford throughout his final year of middle school basketball. 

Josiah Murphy, 2022 SG, YKD Kings (NC): Murphy could be argued as the best pure shooter in the 13U division this weekend. His sweet stroke and good feel for the game allowed him to fill up the score sheet with plenty of three pointers. Another growth spurt and some improvements on defense would be ideal for Murphy heading forward.
