The NY2LA Sports Swish 'N Dish Warm-Up concluded on Sunday. The St. Louis Eagles led by Jayson Tatum, Tyler Cook and Jeremiah Tilmon were dominant all weekend on their way to the 17 and under title. Here is a look at the standouts from Sunday and the weekend.

TOP PERFORMERS
Jayson Tatum – 6-8 – SF – St. Louis Eagles – 2016 

Tatum and the Eagles were excellent all weekend long. The talented wing displayed an impressive skill set against top competition. He showed off an NBA-like move on Sunday where he used a turn around, fade away against tough defenders. The move was smooth, under control and consistent. The combination of size and skill is hard to stop, but he has also added to his athleticism. Tatum played at a level that solidifies his place as one of the top 2016 players and prospects.

Jericole Hellems – 6-5 – SF – St. Louis Eagles – 2018 
Hellems came up huge for the 15 and under St. Louis Eagles on Sunday. He had back to back 19 points games. Three of those points were very important for the Eagles as it sent the quarterfinal game into overtime. Hellems has fantastic size for a freshman while being highly skilled. He is a good outside shooter while also being able to score off the dribble and around the basket. Hellems stood out in a major way on Sunday.

Torrence Watson – 6-4 – G/F – Team Ramey – 2018 
The talented wing played at a high level all weekend for Team Ramey. He has the rare combination of size, strength, athleticism and skill for a young player. Watson scored 19 points against the St. Louis Eagles on Sunday through a diverse skill set. His performance was not quite enough as Team Ramey fell to the Eagles. Watson is establishing himself as one of the top wings in the 2018 class. 

Ishmael El-Amin – 6-2 – PG – Net Gain – 2017 
El-Amin tried to lead Net Gain to an upset over the St. Louis Eagles, but El-Amin and Net Gain came up just short. El-Amin seemed to score a big basket to keep the game close especially late against the Eagles. The lanky guard showed that he can score from all over the floor against the elite talent of the Eagles while playing up. He can score in transition, in the half court, from inside and outside. He is a player to watch in the 2017 class.

Deontay Long – 6-3 – SF – Milwaukee Spartans – 2019 
A look at a future prospect, Long was fantastic in the 14 and under division title game against All-Ohio Red. He scored an efficient and impressive 28 points in the narrow loss. He is big, strong and athletic but he did not dominate off of his physical characteristics. Long used a developed skill set to really stand out. He brought the ball up in many circumstances. Long showed off dribble moves against the top players. He displayed touch and body control around the basket as well. Long is a player to track as he enters high school.

Kaleb Wesson – 6-9 – C – All-Ohio Red – 2017 
Wesson was consistently impressive over the weekend. The Ohio post showed an advanced skill set in the post and the ability to step away from the basket. He is long and strong which allows him great position in the post. Wesson showed that he is comfortable using either hand from the block. He was active on both ends of the floor throughout the weekend. He has really good hands for blocking shots, tracking down rebounds and catching post feeds. Wesson also has good mechanics on his outside shot. He does not have any scholarship offers yet, but that will be changing soon with the way he played and looked at the Swish 'N Dish.

Derek Funderburk – 6-9 – PF – King James Shooting Stars – 2016 
The recent Ohio State commitment played very well at the Swish 'N Dish. He was filled with great potential a few years ago and he has steadily improved his skill set since then. He displayed an advanced skill set including post moves with excellent touch. Funderburk passes the ball well out of the post when double teams come as well. He can play with his back to the basket or facing his defender. His length and athleticism made him difficult to deal with in the past now his skill set is making him a nightmare for opponents. Funderburk was a major reason why King James was so good at the Swish 'N Dish.

STAR WATCH
Nick Ward – 6-9 – C – All-Ohio Red – 2016 

Ward played with more intensity and toughness this weekend than I have seen in the past and it made him hard to stop. His body continues to improve and it has made him more athletic. He is able to dunk on defenders in the post now without having to gather himself. Ward had the mindset of going through the defender to score at the Swish 'N Dish. He was very impressive throughout the tournament.

Tyler Cook – 6-8 – PF – St. Louis Eagles – 2016 
Cook has the mindset that he will dunk everything no matter was in his way. Cook brings toughness, explosiveness and length to the front court. He was one of the top offensive rebounders in the tournament. Playing hard has become a skill in recent years and Cook does that at a high level. With his play at the tournament it is evident why major colleges have made Cook a priority recruit.

Jeremiah Tilmon – 6-11 – C – St. Louis Eagles – 2017 
Tilmon is playing up a year with the 17 and under St. Louis Eagles this season. With his physical stature and game, observers found it hard to believe that he is only a current sophomore. He has additional length on top of his 6'11 height. Tilmon runs the floor like a guard and can finish with the best of them. He rebounded at a high level thanks to his effort on the offensive glass. Tilmon showed why he is one of the best 2017 prospects in the country.

Xavier Sneed – 6-6 – SF – St. Louis Eagles – 2016 
Sneed is one of the most explosive players that you will see at the high school level. Add his 6'6” size to his athleticism and it creates major problems for opposing teams. He has one of the best first steps in the 2016 class. Once he uses his first step to beat defenders off the dribble, he has the leaping ability to finish over the top of any rim protector. He played well throughout the tournament. 

Carte'Are Gordon – 6-8 – C – Team Ramey – 2018 
Gordon shined at the Swish 'N Dish. Observers are impressed with his great size and strength at an early age, but he is more than a big body. Gordon is a skilled player that can run the floor and score facing the basket. He plays with energy and toughness as well. He played well in transition and in the half court. Gordon is looking more and more comfortable playing on the perimeter. He is a major player to watch in the 2018 class.

Courtney Ramey – 6-2 – PG – Team Ramey – 2018 
One of the top point guards in the nation, Ramey proved why he is one of the best with his play at the Swish 'N Dish. He is now 6'2” and plays even larger than that. Ramey uses his length and quickness to make opponents dread bringing the ball up the court. His best ability might be passing. He sees the floor really well while attacking the basket. Ramey played well throughout the tournament.

STOCK BOOSTERS
Nelly Cummings – 5-11 – All-Ohio Red – 2017 

Cummings was one of the surprising players at the Swish 'N Dish. He was consistent over the entire tournament. He is a good athlete that can score off the dribble and finish at a high level around the basket. Cummings is also a good outside shooter that does not need much room to get his shot off. He also shared ball-handling duties for All-Ohio. Cummings is a Pennsylvania native.

Octavius Parker Jr. - 6-0 – G – Mac Irvin Fire – 2017 
Parker elevated his status with stellar play throughout the tournament. He is a long, wiry guard that is an excellent outside shooter. His weekend was highlighted by a 23 point first half on Saturday where he hit seven 3-pointers. Parker is more than an outside shooter. He is a capable ball-handler and sets up his teammates well off the dribble. Parker is a player that could emerge this travel season.

Douglas Wilson – 6-5 – F – Kingdom Hoops Elite 2017 
Wilson was another player that emerged at the Swish 'N Dish and has a considerable amount of potential. At 6'5”, Wilson has the length and athleticism to do a lot of things on the court well. He is active on both ends of the court. Wilson blocks shots and rebounds at a high level. Rebounding, especially on the offensive end, is his best attribute right now. He has the tools to develop into fantastic player.
