Pangos All-American Camp: Day One
Selden, Frankamp among opening day standouts
With prospects from around the country finally arriving in California for the weekend, Friday afternoon tipped off the 10th annual Pangos All-American Camp at Cabrillo High School in Long Beach.
Former NBA and NCAA assistant coach Dave Miller set the tone for the event with his opening remarks. Miller stressed hard work, discipline and an appreciation for the game in his speech. Following Miller’s words of wisdom, the 100-plus campers participated in drills conducted by Jeremy Russotti of 1 Percent Club.
Now onto the action on the court…
Class of 2014’s Wayne Selden (Tilton School, N.H.) and Stanley Johnson (Mater Dei, Calif.), teammates during the camp, both shined in the event’s first day. Selden’s 6’5’’ 200-pound brute frame allowed for easy baskets around the rim including thunderous slam-dunks. Johnson’s versatility was evident both on the perimeter and inside when he soared to the hoop for acrobatic dunks.
Kansas commit, Connor Frankamp (North, Kans.) and freshman standout Isaiah Briscoe (St. Benedict’s, N.J.) proved to be a dynamic backcourt. Frankamp’s threat from beyond the arc combined with Briscoe’s ability to shake defenders and finish above the rim caused havoc for opponents the entire night.
Other notable standouts from Day 1 include 2014’s Cliff Alexander (Currie, Ill.) and Shaqquan Aaron (Taft, Calif.), as well as UNLV commit, Christian Wood (Findlay Prep, Nev.).
