Charlottesville, VA (Future150) -- The 2016 NBPA Top 100 Camp kicked off on Wednesday afternoon on the campus of the University of Virginia. Nationally touted prospects in the classes of 2017, 2018 & 2019 battled against one another in one of the most unique settings in all of prep basketball. Below are a list of standouts from the first session of action on Thursday.

Ari Rosenfeld (@realA_rosenfeld) contributed to this article.

Alex Barcello, 2017 PG: The 6'2" Arizona native put his best foot forward on Thursday afteroon. He came out of the gates hot, and never looked back. He was in full command of his team while scoring 14 points on 6-9 shooting from the field. He also accumulated four assists and two steals while on committing one turnover. He was also swarming on the defensive side of the ball, commanding the respect of his teammates and opponents.

Galen Alexander, 2017 SF: Though he stands just 6'7", Alexander uses his muscular 220-pound frame to get most of his work done around the rim. Whether off of offensive boards or running the wing in transition, he was a menace in the paint all game to the tune of nine points and eight boards. He has room to improve his perimeter game, but right now this is a guy who knows what he does and does it well.

Alex O'Connell, 2017 SG: Again, the 6'6" wing looked very comfortable in this setting. He knows how to hunt his own shot, but doesn't settle if the defense is keying on him. His jump shot is extremely smooth, and he is crafty around the rim as well. Right now, he's a 3-star prospect sitting at #125 in our national rankings. Expect a jump to 4-star status at our next update.

Nick Weatherspoon, 2017 PG: The 6'2" floor general and UNC target really shined on the offensive end of the floor during his team's win on Thursday afternoon. While showing off his explosiveness in transition yesterday, today he was showing off his offensive scoring ability, shooting 7-9 from the field. He finished his game with 15 points on 3-point scores, mid-range pull-ups & acrobatic finishes around the rim. Another excellent performance from the Mississippi native.

Khavon Moore, 2018 SF: While it wasn't his best effort shooting the ball, the 6'7" wing showed his versatility in racking up 12 points, four rebounds, four blocks & three steals during his first game of the day. His length and skill make him one of the most sought-after prospects in the class of 2018, and he's making sure everyone here knows why.

Bourama Sidibe, 2017 C: It's hard to believe the strides Sidibe has made since the high school season with St. Benedict's. Previously just a shot-blocker and rebounder, the 6'10" Malian product has vastly improved his offensive skillset. He displayed a workable turnaround jumper today from the elbows and the baseline, as well as the ability to face up and attack the rim off the bounce.
