Round Rock, TX-
After all the dust settled from the CenTX Hoopsfest, only five teams ran the gauntlet without taking a loss.
We take a look at the teams who went undefeated on the weekend, and give you some insight on how they did it.
Texas Hardwork -Brown 16U (4-0)
This team’s roster is athletic from top to bottom which they used to their advantage with aggressive defense, fast breaks and attacking the hole. They went undefeated after a 20-point victory vs. Young Pro Global in their final game. They feature a deep lineup of guards who attack hard and shoot from deep, making them a threat from all areas. Pair this with their 6’6 big man Shawn Williams (2025) who was consistent inside with multiple 20-point performances and grabbing rebounds on both ends, its clear why this team was a tough match-up all weekend.
SAHE Black 17U (4-0)
A well-balanced team who plays solid defense and consistently hit shots. Also went unblemished and were able to close out strong in the final minutes, winning a few close contests. Taking care of the ball in clutch moments included a backcourt of crafty guards such as Chico Strash (2023) and Jaylen Gardner (UTSA Football Commit/2023) who scored in bunches and provided an offensive spark both on Day 2 and 3. In their Championship game vs. Texas Flight, Strash was able to hit 3 three-pointers and help secure them the 65-40 win. Evan Amsler (2023) did a great job of also chipping in with the scoring load, knocking down important 3’s throughout the weekend.
SA Future White 16U (4-0)
A very competitive and gritty team all weekend. They are stacked with young talent that can score in bunches. Majority of the team are 2025’s, playing up into the 16U division as they held their own and were only one of two 16U teams to go 4-0. From Donny Thomas (2024) scoring however he wanted to Shug Jinkal (2025) being aggressive, getting to the cup, and Trey Keene (2025) hitting timely threes from the perimeter. The Future are definitely a team to keep eyes on as we approach the Summer.
SA Tarheels 17U (4-0)
The Tarheels were another 17U team taking care of business. Led by Max George (2024), Caden Cooper (2024), and Marcus Williams (2024). All three players can run the guard position and took turns getting to the bucket and scoring in multiple ways. Depth was a little scarce for the Heels, running about 6-7 players deep, making for an even more impressive 4-0 record in the toughest division. Williams had one of the better scoring performances of the CenTX Hoopsfest, dropping 32 points in their win Sunday. George was right on his heels adding 26pts.
SA Legends 15U (4-0)
A young 2025 team that rolled through the competition, with their closest margin of victory being a 13 point win. Young guards, Zachariah Linson, Cole Redding, and Knowledge Carter consistently showed they could attack the paint, or pull up and hit from the perimeter. Carter (2025) paced the Legends in their final game with 18pts in a win over Lubbock Elite. The Legends were the only 15U team to remain undefeated.
