The NY2LA Sports Generation Next All-Star Camp kicked off on Saturday as young prospects in the 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 classes kicked off drills and games at M.S.O.E.'s Kern Center. Joe Wieskamp had a tremendous game in Session 2 to lead the day 1 performers.

SESSION 1 TOP PERFORMERS
Matt Caropreso -- 2017 -- F/C
6'4" -- Madison, WI
The native of Madison registered a double-double of 11 points and 10 rebounds as his Lakers defeated the Warriors. Most impressive about Caropreso's effort was his relentlessness on the offensive glass, as half of his 10 rebounds came on that end of the floor.

Destin Williams -- 2017 -- G
5'4" -- Bridgeton, MO
Williams showcased ability as a scoring guard to the tune of 14 points in a morning loss for the Mavericks to the Nuggets. Williams also distributed a bit as well, going for five points.

Seth Millner -- 2018 -- G
5'8" -- Little Rock, AR
Millner had a productive opening game, going for 10 points and six rebounds from the guard spot as his Nets fell to the Bulls. Millner even knocked in his only three-point attempt to showcase some of his range.

Donald Richardson -- 2018 --G
5'9" -- Mabelrak, AR
Richardson showed some promising flashes -- although his Celtics team fell to the Knicks. Richardson only had eight points but was all over the floor for loose balls and steals as he totaled four steals, five rebounds and a blocked shot as his motor never stopped running.

Donovan Billings -- 2020 -- F
5'10" -- Milwaukee, WI
Billings is one of the younger players in the camp but still showed well in his first game, going for 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting to go along with five rebounds and two steals. Billings played inside and played physical even though he was younger and smaller than some opponents.

SESSION 2 TOP PERFORMERS
Nathaniel Buss -- 2017 --  G
5'6" -- Verona, WI
Buss is small in stature but packs quite a punch from the perimeter as he knocked in five three-pointers (going 5-for-5) in a win for the Spurs. Buss did a nice job finding space and getting space to take his shots.

Melvin Lee -- 2017 -- PG
5'4" -- Milwaukee, WI
A pint-sized lead guard, Lee was impressive with his motor and scoring ability in a loss in the afternoon. Lee scored 15 points, knocking in three three-pointers and also attacking off the bounce as well. Once he learns the nuisances of the point guard position he'll be tough to defend.

Alondes Williams -- 2017 -- SG
5'8" -- Milwaukee, WI
Williams stuffed the stat sheet with a tremendous session two performance, going for 20 points, six rebounds, five steals, three blocks and three assists. Williams was everywhere on the floor and his smooth game translates in a lot of different areas.

Courtney Ramey -- 2018 -- PG
5'10" -- St. Louis, MO
Ramey was a dynamic performer at the lead guard position, playing both ends of the floor and going for 10 points, eight assists and five rebounds in a win for his Spurs team. Ramey was effective in both an uptempo and half court game and does a nice job running an offense or hunting his own offense.

Joe Wieskamp -- 2018 -- F
6' -- Muscatina, IA
Wieskamp was very impressive in a big win 76ers win over the Bulls. He had 22 points on 10-for-15 shooting and also had 12 rebounds with six of each coming on both ends of the floor. Wieskamp slashed and hit jumpers and scored in a variety of ways.

NEWS AND NOTES
2017 forward Gentrell Taylor Jr. from Little Rock, AR was one of the day’s most impressive performers in the skills portion of camp before injuring his ankle in the opening minutes of his first camp game. The 6'5" lefty is physically imposing for his age but also shows flashes of skill  and touch.

2019 small forward Jack Cooney was productive in both of his outings on Saturday, going for 12 points in both games. The 5'11" forward from Brookfield, WI also was above 50% from the field in both games as well.

Elijah Dudley scored 11 points as the 5'1" class of 2018 point guard from Ferguson, MO scored the ball at multiple levels while displaying quickness off the dribble.
