The Power 24 in Atlanta moves into the final day of action on Sunday with several Tennessee teams still vying for titles.

In the 17 and under division the Tennessee Chosen Few and Team Nashville qualified for the final four with wins this afternoon and with victories tomorrow morning could meet each other in the Blue Division finale.

Team Nashville stands at 2-0 with pool wins over the Georgia Kings (53-49) and a narrow 57-55 victory over the TAB Spurs. Charles Clark (Siegel) led Team Nashville with 17 in the win. The Nashville crew will face Team United in early morning action tomorrow.

Ryan Jones (Siegel) has been tough running the show for Team Nashville while Jacob Saunders (Cheatham County), Andrew Golden (Columbia Academy) and Clark have provided majority of the scoring load.


The Tennessee Chosen Few have really embraced the team concept in their two victories in pool action. A low scoring 40-35 win over TMP and a 51-39 trouncing of the Carolina Wolves.

Devin Sibley (Karns) led with double digits in the Wolves victory while everyone on the squad found their way into the scorebook in the earlier win. Tyleke Love (Dobyns-Bennett) was simply outstanding on the defensive side of the ball deflecting several passes for easy transition baskets. Treyvon Fields (Virginia) has played his best event of the summer coming to the realization that he has the talent to play on the next level.

Overall team effort from the entire crew including Justin Simmons (Stone Memorial), Oterriah Lee (CAK), Luke Matthews (Stone Memorial), Zak Carter (Hardin Valley), Imani Miller (North Carolina), Andre Wilson (Austin East) and Tyler Yoder (Stone Memorial).

The Chosen Few will battle the Birmingham Storm in final four action tomorrow.


Staying with the 17s, the Chattanooga Elite remain alive in their bracket. The Choo-Choo crew are in the final four of the White Division with action kicking again tomorrow morning. A nice bracket victory over the Atlanta Select Classic led to some solid performances from Sadik Spence (Tyner Academy), Logan Cox (Bradley Central), Orlando Moore (Brainerd) and Alex Watkins (Tyner Academy).


USSAA out of Nashville will play Team Breakdown for 5th place in their division. The Nashville crew has been led by Matthew Hailey (Ravenwood) and Tyquez Itiat (Stratford).


In the 16 and under Super Elite division Team Nashville and the Tennessee Chosen Few will collide tomorrow morning in the final four with the winner moving into the title clash.

Team Nashville has embraced the team concept and has whisked through pool play in rather easy fashion.


The Tennessee Chosen Few made their way with a tough victory over the Georgia Stars Select to the tune of 67-59. Brady Nease (Union County) took scoring honors with 14 points in the raucous win. Kelvin Jackson (Fulton), Jordan Bowden (Carter) and Durell Middleton (Powell) all pitched in with 11 markers.

Patrick Good (David Crockett) has proven to be a very nice pick up for the TCF. Combined with Gage Spence (Stone Memorial) the squad has a dynamic duo in the backcourt for the future.
