Corinth, MS (Future150) -- The opening day of the 2013 Lighthouse Classic brought together some very talented teams and players from the Southeast. Several players distanced themselves from the rest and showcased their talents.

Here are the standouts…

Devin Booker, 2014 SG, Moss Point: Booker struggled in the latter stages of the game because of a continuous pounding throughout the game, but he showed why he is going to be a good player at the next level. The 6-foot-6 guard did a nice job of playing through pressure, as he showed a nice touch around the rim. Booker missed more shots than usual, but he still finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

Kardell Robertson, 2015 PF, Madison Prep: Robertson did an outstanding job protecting the rim and anchoring down on the defensive end for Madison Prep. The 6-foot-8 power forward was quick off the floor, leading to tons of blocks. He also used his length and jumping ability to grab in rebounds at a high rate.

Kendall Stafford, 2015 SG, Corinth: One of the main reasons why Corinth came away with a win over Moss Point was because of the play of Kendall Stafford. The 6-foot-3 wing did a nice job on both ends of the floor. On the offensive end, he hit some jumpers and finished at the rim. On defense, he played sound defense and helped contain Devin Booker.

Chris Long, 2016 C, Nettleton: One of the impressive unknown players that came to play on Friday was Chris Long. The 6-foot-5 big man was one of the best post players to hit the floor. He showed off great hands and finished at the rim consistently. He still has a lot of developing to do, but he could be a quality mid-major big man down the road with his potential.

Will Shelton, 2015 SF, Hardin County: Another prospect that showed off a promising future was Will Shelton. The 6-foot-5 athlete did a great job of impacting the game on both ends of the floor. He was very active and rebounded at will, as well as block shots. Shelton needs to refine his skills, but he made a positive impact for his team.

John Wiley Works, 2014 SF, Alcorn Central: Works may have been the most valuable player of the day. The 6-foot-3 wing was very versatile with his game, as a played anywhere from the 1 to the 4. He excelled at using his strength and getting to the basket. He played as hard as any player on the floor on Friday.

Raheem Sorrell, 2014 PF, Corinth: Sorrell was one of the most physically imposing players of the first day. The 6-foot-5 power forward was very physical in the post, as he used his big, wide body to make plays. It was an automatic two points for him in the paint, especially with his back to the basket.

Terrance Trussell, 2015 SG, Moss Point: In what was thought to be a team composed only of Booker and Marcus Watson, Trussell also took some of the scoring load. In the first half, he benefited from the other two players’ attention, as he hit four three-pointers and finished up with 12 points.
