Houston Hoops – One of the most consistent teams in the tournament for 4 years!! This team won the 13 & Under Kingwood Classic in 2006!
Jamal Branch – 6’1” – Kansas City’s own coming to test his skills back home and compete in the tournament he has dominated since he was a child. The smooth, athletic, heady, explosive feet, outstanding rebounder, and excellent finisher is coming home to play in front of all the many loved ones, including his first opportunity to meet up against his old team mates and friends, the Kansas City Bruins (“Tarheels”)! He has been an MVP wherever he plays, but you would not know it because he has the greatest attitude a kid could have and as respectful as scripted. Jamal has been ranked since he was 10 years old and is currently #5 on the Buckeye Report!
Alex Cooper – 6’6” – Native Bahamian – Anybody heard of Tim Duncan? This kid maybe the class of the tournament! He is well rounded and can play all 5 positions! What can’t he do!?! He is new to the circuit and the team so (shhhh…..) nobody knows about him yet! He is a kid with great understanding but please bring a birth certificate and the doctor that delivered him .. cause nobody believes that this kid can be so young, so big, and so good at the same time!!!!
Dallas Mustangs – Newly formed team under the coach of coaches – Tony Johnson – National Champion AAU 14s and 15s – Byron Eaton - Oklahoma State, Shawn Williams -Boston College, Chris Lewis - University of San Diego, Wesley Johnson – Iowa State, Derrick Rowland & Donald Sloan – Texas A&M
Lebryan Nash – 6’7” – Athletic, Can play all 5 positions with a Division I - Body in the 8th Grade!! The kid is 14 years old – Unbelievable (It’s a Must See – It’s a little early but you heard it hear first….. The Kid is a Pro!) He can put it on the floor, shoot the 3, Post you Up!! Dunk in your face!!!! The #1 Ranked kid in Hoop Scoop!
Keyan Anderson – 5’10” – Smooth as shut your mouth! Quick as heck! Defensive gem! He can guard – the country with one arm tied behind his back and the enemy at the gate!
