Pangos 2009: Day 3: Sunday Player Updates


Day three consists of a 9am game followed by the "Cream of the Crop" top 25 and top 50 camp all star games. The All Star games were chosen by a vote from the media and featured the camps brightest stars which included each and every Wolfpack Target. Here's a run down of what went down on day 3 (video will be up later tonight):

Ryan Harrow, 2010 Commit, PG:
Sunday marked the return of Ryan Harrow. Looking refreshed and eager to impress, Ryan got back to being Ryan. He had the hot hand early as he came out firing and connecting on three straight 3 pointers. As the confidence built, the highlights started to flow. Ryan was wowing the crowd with his patented crossover and floater as he dropped 15 points. Later in the top 25 "Cream of the Crop" game Ryan went head to head with Joe Jackson (5 star PG) and dropped 7 points on the physical guard in limited minutes. It was a great match-up as both were going hard at each other. Jackson ended with the better stats, but Ryan was forced to leave early because of a flight he had to catch. Harrow and Jackson are two of the better point men we've seen this year and they showed why.

Luke Cothron, 2010 Recruit, PF/C
On Sunday Luke was cursed by a case of not getting the ball. In a game that was completely controlled by guards (and Quincy Miller posing as a guard), Luke never really got involved and was held to 2 points. In the top 25 "Cream of the Crop" game it was more of the same for Luke and although Ryan made a conscience effort to get him the ball, Luke was held to only 2 points. However, this did not change anyones opinion of the big time big man, who had a quality camp and really showed extreme improvement this weekend. Cothron solidified his ranking amongst the nations elite.

Will Barton, 2010 Recruit, SG:
Big Will did some SERIOUS work in the top 25 "Cream of the Crop" game as he dropped what we counted as 21 points. When Barton gets going, there's nobody who's going to stop him. In the paint, beyond the arc, above the rim...you name it, Will can do it and do it against the top players in the country.

Mychal Parker, 2010 Recruit, Wing:
Mychal played well on Sunday as he continued to play aggressive. His shot wasn't falling like it usually does this weekend but that didn't stop Parker from doing what he does. In the top 25 "Cream of the Crop" game Mychal produced when he got the ball, which wasn't very often. He ended with 6 points and 5 assists and as usual, looked impressive when he got aggressive.

Quincy Miller, 2011 Target, PF:
Quincy opened up a lot of eyes on Sunday when he went for over 20 points using his expansive skill set. He showed a great deal of maturity and while he's only 15 years old, he doesn't mind being a vocal leader on the court. There was simply no answer for the inside/outside attack of Miller. He is a rare commodity, standing at 6'9 and being able to comfortably attack off the dribble and drain jumpers with his smooth stroke. Quincy reminds us of a young, more polished, slightly less athletic version of CJ Leslie.

Dezmine Wells, 2011 Target, Guard:
The Dezmine Wells party continued during the top 50 "Cream of the Crop" game where the physicality and athleticism of Wells was the difference. Highlighted by a viscous up and under dunk, Dezmine showed the passion and basketball IQ that has scouts raving about him as one of the breakout players at this years Pangos camp. His size alone allows him to manhandle smaller guards and his quicks and visions help him compete against other guards near his size.

    Awesome work to all the fellas who gave it their all this weekend. With the drills for two days along with the high elite competitive games it had to be what was one physically exhausting weekend.

    Have to wonder if the jet lag also had something to do with Ryans' energy and performance coming back down to earth on Sat, back great to hear bout his experience on Sun- and all the hopefuls to wear the Red & White getting into the spotlight events.

    Sweet job WPH.

    Alright lets see it. If you have 1 scholarship to give out for the class of 2010, who would you like to see state land? Personally I would like to land Barton and have him at SF. Thoughts?

    Great coverage.

    Any idea of where we stand on Well's list?

    He looks like a BIG TIME player and someone that would defintely fit with what Sid wants to do.

    I hear Leslie hit Chapel hill for a visit? Can this be confirmed?

    Jose,
    I bet jet lag was killing Ryan because it was hitting us hard. We tried to wake up before the games, get an article up or a video started, tape until 10pm, and then try to get a recap out. This was a tiring weekend to say the least...however it's probably the most fun we've had covering an event since starting this site.

    Robert Gibbs,
    I'll just say this. If the staff could land Luke, Parker, or Barton I'd take any of them.

    RealWolfpacker,
    Actually it was Dezmine Wells who came up to us. We had taken some video of him and I think he was curious on who we were since we never got to introduce ourselves after the first day. He was surprised to see that Wolfpack Hoops was representing in Cali, you'll find out what he had to say about the Pack in his interview coming later this week.
