The Chicago Elite Classic had a number of tremendous performances in front of a good crowd at UIC as teams from across the country descended on Chicago to face some of the better teams in the Windy City.  Connecticut bound Daniel Hamilton delivered some last second heroics and Kansas bound big man Cliff Alexander punished Bishop Gorman was another tremendous interior performance.  Here's a look at Hamilton, Alexander, and other top performances from the second session of games at the Chicago Elite Classic on Saturday...

TOP PERFORMERS
(Note - listed in alphabetical order)
Daniel Hamilton --  2014 -- SG -- St. John Bosco
The 6-foot-6 UConn commit hit a tremendous shot in front of future coach Kevin Ollie as Hamilton went iso and pumped in the game-winner against Whitney Young on the road. Hamilton is versatile enough to score inside or outside and was used by Bosco coach Derrick Taylor to attack Jahlil Okafor in the middle. Hamilton is now 4-for-4 on high school game-winners for his career according to Taylor.

Vance Jackson -- 2016-- SF -- St. John Bosco
Jackson finished with 19 points and looked very impressive as a catch-and-shoot forward with range or an ability to finish off of the bounce. Jackson was more confident and assertive as a scorer since the summer and his ability to shoot from the perimeter at a high clip with his size makes him an immediate asset. When you couple in some moves off the bounce in traffic and Jackson looks like a strong prospect going forward.

Jahlil Okafor -- 2014 -- C -- Whitney Young
Playing in front of Coach K, Jahlil's season debut meant 22 points and 10 rebounds, but Okafor didn't touch the ball in the final minutes and that was a key reason for Whitney Young's loss.  Okafor handled double teams relatively well and has tremendous hands that help him in traffic against multiple defenders. He's more skilled than people give him credit for and had some moves off-the-dribble as well while showing dominant interior potential and flashes up play that has garnered him #1 ranking status in most circles. 

Cliff Alexander -- 2014 -- PF -- Curie
The Kansas commit snared rebound after rebound and worked hard for dunks in the Condors' win over Bishop Gorman. One of the country's elite rebounders, Alexander snared defensive boards, tip slams and kept possessions alive for Curie as he got the best of Stephen Zimmerman and Bishop Gorman on the inside, going for 22 points and 20 rebounds in a monster effort. Alexander is still mostly power at this point, but when it's working that well, it doesn't really matter what else Cliff has to offer and no one can counter the athleticism, length, and power he brings to the table the majority of the time.

Miles Reynolds -- 2014 -- SG -- Whitney Young
The Saint Louis commit had the best game of his career as he went for 25 points in the loss to St. John Bosco. Reynolds scored on a number of leak-outs as Jahlil Okafor or Paul White found him streaking on the wing for layups, but Reynolds was a perfect complimentary piece and will need to continue to score for the Dolphins to be an elite high school team this season.

STAR WATCH
(Note - listed in alphabetical order)
Tyler Dorsey -- 2015 -- G -- St. John Bosco
Although Hamilton and Jackson starred for St. John Bosco, Dorsey played well and was confident with the ball in his hands late in the game. Dorsey can finish through contact -- he had an impressive take right at Okafor as he scored through the foul -- and also knock in jumpers and he can run an offense as well. Dorsey is probably at his best attacking from the wing and seeking a basket off the bounce.

Keelon Lawson -- 2015 -- SF – Hamilton
His younger brother Dedric struggled, but Keelon at times was scoring in a number of ways, but he was also trying too hard once Simeon started to run away with the game. Lawson can score, handle and rebound and the Memphis commit wants the ball in his hands during the game and wants to deal with pressure. Once Lawson learns to pass out of pressure more and make others better, he'll be a complete package.

Paul White -- 2014 -- F -- Whitney Young
Saddled with foul trouble in the fourth quarter, White had to play a bit conservative, but he's a tremendous floor leader that can handle, pass, rebound and score for the Dolphins. White needs to be more assertive as a scorer at times but he picks and chooses his spots and usually makes the right basketball play. The Georgetown commit can do a lot of different things at 6-foot-9 and he's one of the most skilled players at that size in the country.

D.J. Williams -- 2015 -- SF – Simeon
The Illinois commit looked really good in Simeon's season debut as he helped play a major part in the Wolverines' balanced effort. Williams knocked in some tough shots on a number of moves and also rebounded in traffic and found teammates on some passes. Williams is improving a lot and his confidence is soaring as the season begins.

Stephen Zimmerman -- 2015 -- C -- Bishop Gorman
Zimmerman struggled with Cliff Alexander's physicality at times but still showed flashes of his highly regarded potential in the loss.  Zimmerman had 10 points and 13 boards and was 4-13 from the field.  His lift looked like it was affected at times from an ankle injury but Zimmerman did look like he had put on muscle and he is still tremendously skilled.
