Here is a Preview of Teams and Players to Watch at the Adidas Gauntlet Qualifier in Dallas.

Teams To Watch:

Urban DFW Elite- Urban DFW is an athletic team that likes to play man-to-man defense, and if you're not careful they will make you turn the ball over at a high rate.

Basketball University- Basketball University has good length at multiple positions on the court. The team out of Houston, Texas must play together as a team and execute on both ends on the floor if they want to have a chance to win the Adidas Gauntlet Qualifier.

PB Nation Yes II Success- The San Antonio Adidas Sponsored team isn't the biggest squad, but they're tough and scrappy. They will have to play their strengths if they want to come out on top this weekend.

Team Harden (TX.)- Team Harden is a guard-oriented team that can really fill it up on the offensive end. This team will be one of the most exciting teams to watch this weekend.

Prospects To Watch:

Wade Taylor / Urban DFW / 2021

The four-star Texan Wade Taylor is one of the fastest guards end to end with the ball in his hands. The speed demon from Lancaster, Texas can break down defenders with his quick change of direction and deadly crossover.


KJ Pruitt / Urban DFW / 2020

Pruitt is a versatile combo guard who can play on or off the ball. He has ideal size for position at 6'4" and has the skill set that allows him to score on all three levels.


Marcus Williams / Team Harden (TX.) /2020

Williams has played very well thus far on the Adidas Circuit. The athletic two guard can make plays for himself and for others. Williams is a good on the ball defender who takes pride in staying in front of his man.


Journee Phillips / PB Nation YIIS / 2020

The PB Nation guard Journee Phillips is fearless and doesn't back down from anyone he's matched up against. Phillips attacks the rim well from the perimeter and knows how to finish through defenders for tough buckets.


Breon Thompson / Basketball University / 2020

The long athletic wing has a solid perimeter game and excels in transition. Thompson has a solid jumper who keeps defenders honest and knows how to move well without the ball.
