Dallas, TX (Future150) -- PrimeTime Sports Nationals resumed play on Friday.  Teams were fighting for a top seed in their pool to advance to the championship bracket. The games were definitely more competitive as bracket play looks to get started on Saturday.

Here were the top performers on a basketball-filled Friday.

Jalen Perkins 2018 CF, Louisiana Gators: Perkins was strong inside. He is a a combo forward right now. With more work on his handles will be a SF. He can attack off the dribble and is a one move and go type of player.  However, he doesn't handle pressure well and loses the ball when he dribbles sometimes. Still, the young athlete is 6-foot-3 and capable.

Questyn Luckey 2018 PG, 210 Thunder: Luckey can score inside very well off penetration. When he wants to take over and control the game, he can. However, he turns the motor on and off and that can effect the team's performance. Regardless, Luckey is a nice guard prospect with potential.

Joewel Crawford 2019 PG, 210 Thunder: Crawford played up in the 15u division. A shifty guard that can break down his defenders Crawford can get in to the lane for a soft floater. He must work on making smarter decisions with the ball late in games. Still it says something for his abilities that he is called upon to help end games. Crawford was very impressive on Friday.

Byron Vaughns 2018 C, Texas Shooters: Vaughns is very mechanical in the post, but he is also effective. Although his movements aren't fluid, his strength and great use of his body helps him create space for a shot. He also grabs rebounds at a high rate, gathering 15 in his Friday morning game.

Draylon Roberson 2018 PG, Texas Shooters: Roberson was smart coming off the pick and roll. He read the defense well as there was not a strong hedge, which allowed him to shoot a midrange jumper from the middle. Roberson has good handles, as he handles pressure well and was given the ball when the team needed to run some clock.

Isaac Likekele 2018 PG, North Texas Thunder: Likekele is a big point guard at 6'3 - 6'4 and can handle the ball at a high level. Was able to withstand heavy pressure from guard and showed the ability to create for others. With 11 assists in his game on Friday, Likekele has the tools to be a big time prospect if he continues to improve his game.

Lil Paul Williams, Williams had a strong showing against M33M out of Memphis. He is an athletic big that finished well in the paint. Defensively, he showed his versatility by guarding the 3-5 position.

Marcus Garrett 2017 PG, Swaghouse Elite: Garrett is one of the top 40 players in his class in Texas. A 6-foot-5 point guard with good vision he makes great choices coming off picks.  He also has the athleticism to rise up and dunk on bigger defenders. With heavy interest from Oklahoma, TCU and UNT, Garrett's stock should rise very soon.

Zion Jenkins 2018 PG, Texas Riders: Jenkins is an extremely quick guard with great handles. What was most impressive was his ability to control the game late and get his team the best shot possible. Jenkins has a quick shot.  He hit two three-pointers in the second half to keep his team in the game.

Trevon Smith 2018 PG,LA Gators: A point guard that has a high IQ and knows how to put his teammates in great situations to be successful on the floor. He is a pass first PG, which makes it hard for teams to guard him. Shoots the ball well of the dribble and also uses his dribble to attack the rim.

Jamarzey Arvie 2018 CG, Showstoppers: Arvie is a very speedy and aggressive guard that uses his quickness in various ways.  He handles the ball well in the open floor.  Arvie can create problems with his dribble or with the pass.

Eugene Rivers III 2018 CG, Rocky Mtn Vipers: A dual-threat guard Rivers III can get it done on both ends of the floor. He is very effective on the offensive end of the floor. The reason is he uses ball screens to his advantage and has a nice mid-range.  Rivers III is very lethal with the ball in his hands because opposing teams never know what he's going to do.

Michkaleke Baker PG, 2018 Rocky Mtn Vipers: Baker has a small frame, which makes him hard to guard. He knows how to use it to his advantage. He showed the ability to score the ball shooting off the bounce.  He also got to the free throw line consistently.   He knows when and how to attack the rim.
