Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- The Wallace Prather Memorial concluded Sunday afternoon, with the host team Atlanta Celtics bringing home the 17U trophy. They defeated Wisconsin United.

In the 16U division, Heat Check defeated Game Elite in overtime to take home the crown.

Here are the standouts from Sunday, including a host of point guards…

Tobias Howard, 2015 PG, Stackhouse Elite: Howard consistently hit shots from behind the arch over the weekend. He also displayed good control of his team and a nice pace to his game. He controlled the tempo. He also was explosive enough to get to the rim and make things happen for his teammates.

Will Washington, 2016 CG, Heat Check: Washington is one of the new additions to a loaded Heat Check team and he did not disappoint. The 6-foot-1 guard has speed and is unstoppable in transition. He excels at getting to the rim, where he is also a reliable finisher. Georgia, Clemson, and Mercer are showing interest right now.

Kobi Simmons, 2016 PG, Atlanta Celtics: Simmons showed off his point guard skills on Friday night, but Sunday morning against Team Breakdown, he came out scorching hot in the scoring department. The sophomore scored on all three levels, but he was really feeling his three-point shot. Simmons has proved he is one of the most explosive scorers in his class from the guard position.

Herman Williams, 2016 SG, Team Breakdown: While it was impossible to stop Simmons in his zone, Williams did a nice job of slowing his down. With his lateral quickness and good hands, Williams proved to be one of the top defenders at Prather. He has a high motor and is a defensive stopper on the perimeter. Murray State has offered, and that list will expand with time.

Shawntrez Davis, 2015 PF, Game Elite: For the longest time, Davis has been defined by his athleticism and high motor. He still showed all of that over the weekend, but he also showed another facet of his game. The 6-foot-8 power forward showed great vision and passed out of the low-post and high-post very efficiently.

Romello White, 2016 PF, Stackhouse Elite: White emerged as a top player on Saturday and continued his play into Sunday. At 6-foot-8, White is an athletic big that is hard to keep off of the boards. He runs the floor very well for his size, and he uses his length and jumping ability to block shots and protect the rim. Georgia, George Mason, and Middle Tennessee State have offered.

Braxton Blackwell, 2016 SF, Atlanta Celtics: Blackwell isn’t the flashiest player there is, but he gets stuff done on both ends of the floor. He played consistently over the weekend, scoring, defending, and rebounding. He is a hard matchup on offense because of his size and quickness. He displayed an inside and outside game.

Darius Perry, 2017 PG, Game Elite: Despite being young, Perry fits right in with the 17U group. He excels in transition, where he likes to get out and push the basketball. He proved he could hit shots from the perimeter, as well as get to the rim and finish with contact. He is a young point guard to take note of for the future.

Jonathan Argujo, 2016 C, Team Breakdown: A native of the Dominican Republic, Argujo is new to basketball in the state. Nevertheless, it looks like he may be a productive player at the next level. In a game where Dewan Huell and Juwan Durham were slow to get things going, Argujo entered the game and scored around the goal. At 6-foot-9 and 250-pounds, he is hard to handle in the post. He will continue to force double-teams or he will make teams pay.
