New Haven, CT (Future150) -- On the second day of the National Prep Showcase the competition was fierce. While some times were playing their first game of the weekend, others were playing their second game and were hungry for a win and to close their weekend on a high note. Here are some of the players who ultimately difference makers for their teams:

Tavarias Shine, 2014 SF, Fork Union Military Academy- He has had arguably one of the best weekends of anyone at the event. He is a big time shooter and understands how to be efficient and picks his spots as a scorer. Physically he is near college ready and could bring value to a program as soon as he steps on campus depending what level he ends up at.

Cane Broome, 2014 PG, St. Thomas More- The quick and talented point guard got to the rim vs Fork Union, as no one could stay in front of him. He finished at the rim or kicked out to his open teammates and caused serious problems. He should also have an impact at Sacred Heart next season.

Reggie Reid, 2015 PG, Elev-8 Sport Institute- The 5-foot-11 floor general helped spark the uspet of the weekend, leading his team to the surprise upset of Wilbraham & Monson. He pressured the W&M guards into turnovers and ran the offense well.  He also showed the ability to step out and hit deep shots. He will be one to keep an eye on.

Mustapha Heron, 2016 PG, Wilbraham & Monson- One of the bright spots in an otherwise underwhelming night, Heron showed how versatile he is. He attacked the rim, rebounded, and found his open teammates. He is a big point guard and continues to show the skill set that would lead to believe he will be one in the future as well.

Donte Grantham, 2014 SF, Hargrave- He is long and active wing that can handle the ball well and proved as much on Saturday. He shoots the ball well and does a lot of little things as well. While he struggles with his consistency his upside is fantastic. He should have a good career at Clemson.

Detrick Mostella, 2014 SG, Notre Dame Prep- The buzz around Mostella disappeared a bit once he decommitted from OK State and chose Pittsburgh. He has resurfaced at Notre Dame Prep and proved that he still has the ability to be an elite scorer. He has the confidence and mindset to drop 40 on any given night and is a streaky shooter. Don’t be surprised if he leads the Panthers in scoring before his career is over.

Jarvis Garrett, 2014 PG, Notre Dame Prep- While Mostella may be the scorer, it is Garrett that leads this team. He is a heady pass-first guard with great court vision and a good feel for the game. He has the ability to create shots off the bounce for both himself and others.

Tre Harris, 2014 SG, Fishburne Military Academy-  Harris is a big time shooter who ultimately the difference in Fishburne’s upset of New Hampton. He has great size and a quick release. He also has good upper body strength and should continue to have a good year at Fishburne before heading to K-State.

Aaron Falzon, 2015 SF, Northfield Mount Hermon- While he didn’t torch the nets like he did in his first outing, Falzon did other thing to make sure that his team got the win. He rebounded the ball well and attacked the rim when he realized his shot wasn’t falling. He will have a breakout season with NMH this year.

Tory Miller, 2014 PF, New Hampton- The Colorado signee showed why he will bring value to the Buffalos during their loss to Fishburne. He attacked the glass and showed a variety of post moves. The key for him moving forward will be consistency. If he can be the player he was yesterday all the time, then Colorado got a steal.

Donovan Mitchell, 2015 SG, Brewster Academy-  He is an athletic guard that is at his best when he is playing above the rim.  He also has the build to be a bulldog of a defender and finishes through contact well. He had a series of highlight reel dunks on Saturday night and his upside is undeniable.

Isaac Copeland, 2014 SF, Brewster Academy- Copeland looks to be a perfect fit for Georgetown’s system.  He has bulked up while not sacrificing any of his perimeter game. He did well in the high post, where he pulled up for 15-footers or attacked off the bounce.
