New Orleans, LA (Future150) -- Championships were won on Memorial Day at the 2013 NOLA Super60 at the Alario Center in New Orleans. In 14U action, the Atlanta Rockafellas defeated the Birmingham Storm Elite 49-42 to win them a championship.

In the 13U title game, Team IZOD came out strong in the first half, but an explosive comeback by We All Can Go in the second half gave them a championship game victory.

Here are individual standouts from the last day of action...

DeAndre Ballard, 2017 SF, Atlanta Rockafellas:

The 6-foot-4 shooting guard has grown since we last him at our Future150 Main Event Atlanta last May, and we are very pleased with his progress to this point. He can put the ball on the floor and attack, and he finishes at the rim with his long arms. He is also an explosive leaper who is a good rebounder. Look for his stock to rise when we update our 2017 rankings.

Austin Wiley, 2017 PF, Birmingham Storm Elite:

The 6-foot-7 big man proved to us this past weekend that there is not a better shot-blocker in the country in 2017 than the Birmingham, Alabama native. His offensive game is still a work in progress, but his natural instincts on the defensive end are very impressive. He could potentially be a top five big man in the class when all is said and done.

Joe Cooper , 2019 PG, Memphis War Eagles:

The lead guard for the War Eagles is blessed with amazing court vision and passing skills that are a rarity for prospects at even the high school level. He always knows where the open man is, and puts his teammates in good situations on the floor. He might just be the best point guard in the country in the 2019 class right now.

Omar Kieta2018 C, MBA Hoops:

The 6-foot-9 big man is new to the United States, and he made quite the impression on the big stage in New Orleans over the weekend. He was rebounding and scoring on the inside at a very high level. His shot-blocking is also advanced for his age. His offensive game needs work, but that will come with the proper training.

James Lewis, 2018 PG, Atlanta Rockafellas:

The young Atlanta guard plays with poise whenever he is on the floor. He plays well when utilizing the high pick-and-roll, and made defenses pay by drilling jump shot after jump shot when coming off of high screens. He also helped lead his team to a championship in the 14U division.

Chandler Lawson, 2019 PF, Memphis War Eagles:

The Memphis prospect and brother of K.J. and Dedric Lawson may end up becoming the most heralded of the three brothers. The 6'3" forward was so impressive this weekend that he will be Future150's #1 prospect in the 2019 class when we unveil our rankings in the coming month. He can play multiple positions on the floor and scores effortlessly around the rim. He simply could not be stopped this past weekend.

Lamont Berzat2017 PG, Swilling Storm:

The 5-foot-8 Brother Martin (La) product continued to impress us this spring with his toughness and desire to win. He is a bulldog on defense and never backs down from competition. He is a scorer who plays the game with a passion that is rarely seen at that level.

Ladarius Marshall2018 SG, MBA Hoops:

The 6'3" shooting guard is a spectacular athlete and his athleticism was on full display in New Orleans. The muscular guard is still very raw on the floor, but he regularly throws down big dunks and effortlessly blocks several shots each game using his length and explosiveness.

Lejon Doss, 2019 PF, Texas BU All-Starz:

The power forward from Dallas validated his status as one of the most talented sixth graders in the country. The 6-foot-2 power forward used his big frame to rebound very well and score on the inside with ease. He also showed good timing when blocking shots on defense.

Qon Murphy, 2018 SG, Game Elite:

The 6'2" shooting guard was impressive this past weekend when showcasing his quick first step to the basket. He is also a very talented on-ball defender who thrives playing physical basketball. Good looking prospect.

Chase Hayden2017 PG, Team Thad:

One of the most impressive young point guards in the city of Memphis, Chase had his jump shot on point Monday. He was torching the nets from three-point range as well as mid-range, and used his superb ball-handling skills and explosive first step to get into the lane and create for his teammates.

You guys should have watched more than the final 4 games for the 2019 class.  There were others who played exceptional but just fell short in making the final four.  You can’t decide a rank on one game!
