The Winter Invitational took place at the Kroc Center in Phoenix, AZ from Friday, November 12th until Sunday, November 13th. The event, hosted by Team Cezer featured boys teams from 5th grade through 8th and attracted teams from Arizona, Nevada, and California. The format is two days of pool play followed by bracket play on Sunday. The event saw some high-level floor generals. in this article, we take a look at the top PGs from the event.
Jakyi Miles 5’7 Sneaker Steal 2028 – Miles was one of the top floor spacing PGs at the event, landing him a spot on my shooter’s squad. His all-around PG play was simply too good to ignore. In addition to knocking down open threes, he managed to consistently break down defenses with his ability to get into the lane and either dish or score. He was one of the more exciting all-around players from the event.
Micah Cunningham 5’4 Sneaker Steal 2028 – What impressed me about Cunningham was his offensive package. The PG showed one of the slickest handles at the event, using it to create space from defenders. He showed terrific vision and the ability to pass the basketball off the dribble, setting up teammates for easy buckets.
Delton Prescott 5’8 Sneaker Steal 2027 (featured image) – Look up the word Dawg in the dictionary and you’re going to see Prescott’s name. He was one of the top two-way players at the event, hounding ballhandlers on the defensive end while refusing to be slowed down on the offensive side. His stop and go game was crazy, as Prescott kept defenders off balance with his ability to stop on a dime, and then show a burst. This simple move was effective in allowing him to get to the rim time and time again.
Damien Tillman 5’6 Team Takeoff 2026 – Ironically it was in a loss that I earned more respect for Tillman. He was the epitome of a floor general all weekend, keeping his team in the game against a Hunter Elite team that would go on to win the 8th-grade silver crown. Tillman played mistake free, showing a solid handle while protecting the ball for his squad. A high IQ player, it appeared as if the 5’6 PG made the correct play every time down the floor.
William Gordon 5’9 Up Tempo 2026 – Gordan may have had the best 1 v 1 game at the event. The dynamic combo guard used a slew of COD’s to break down defenders off the bounce. He also did a terrific job of playing passing lanes leading to several steals and transition finishes for him. When he wasn’t putting the ball in the basket, he was able to set up teammates, hitting them with a few flashy dimes, including a nice shovel pass for a layup off the break.
