This events of this weekend will serve as a gauge for local grassroots programs, as several teams from DC, Maryland, and Virginia will be competing at The St. James in Springfield where Hoop Group's DC Jam Fest is set to take place. Below is a preview of the tournament, including a rundown of some teams and players to watch from the top 17U, 16U, and 15U divisions respectively.


DC Premier 16U UAA is coming off a championship berth at UA Finals in Atlanta. Kino Lilly Jr. and Devin Ceaser are a dynamic duo in the backcourt, but they also have some productive wings in Wes Peterson Jr. and James Gross Jr. who are good athletes. 

Higher Level Premier is led by talented point guard prospect Ethan Wilson, one of the biggest sleepers in Northern Virginia. 

Maryland 3D Red is a blue-collar squad that will play the right way and defend. Jordan Oates is an under-the-radar wing prospect who will likely guard the opposing team's best perimeter player.

New World Gold big man Jason Edokpayi is a workhorse in the front court. Expect him to bring energy throughout this tournament.

Nova Cavs Lin is a balanced team that features good depth at every position.
