2016 Pangos All-Midwest Frosh/Soph Camp Report
by Dinos Trigonis
(November 11, 2016)

 The 11th annual Pangos All Midwest Frosh/Soph Campwas held recently (October 22-23) at The Park District (La Grange IL/near Chicago).  This event featured 200 top 2019 and 2020 players (along with a few talented 2021 players) from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska.

Former long-time NCAA & NBA assistant Dave Miller (recently a NBA analyst for the Los Angeles Lakers Time Warner Sports Network) opened the camp with an excellent fundamental skills session and guest speakers included national scouts Van Coleman, Frank Burlison

and Ronnie Flores. Media/scouts on hand included Dinos Trigonis (Fullcourt Press, Pangos & Nothing But Net Magazine), Frank Burlison (BurlisonOnBasketball.com/McDonald’s All-American Game & NBPA Camp selection committees), Van Coleman (The Basketball Channel, Nothing But Net Magazine National Recruiting Analyst, McDonald’s All-American Game voter & NBPA Camp Selection Committee), Clark Francis (Hoop Scoop/ McDonald’s All-American Game & NBPA Camp selection committees), Ronnie Flores (GrassrootsHoops.net,  BallisLife.com, “Fab 50” National HS Team Rankings & Mr. Basketball USA Tracker), Roy & Harv Schmidt (Illinois Prep Bulls-Eye), Scott Comeau (BallisLife.com), Joe Henricksen (Chicago Sun-Times/City-Suburban Hoops Report), Johnny Hines, Eric Hines & Darrell Coleman (Courtside Films), Brian Rogers (Eye Catchers), Derek Ellison (The Prep Round Ball Report), Vince Baldwin (Nike Basketball), Larry Butler(Illinois Spotlight), Thom Jones (TJ Hoops Scouting Service), Seth Pote (Chicago Prep Hoops), Scott Burgess &Derrick Smith (Prep Hoops Illinois), Steve Newhouse (WeAreDePaul.com) and Ryan Raddle (ILBallerz.com).

The camp’s top 60 players were selected by the national media present and were showcased in the two “cream of the crop” games held at the conclusion of the event.  Unfortunately, there was not enough room for all of the worthy kids deserving to be in the two all-star games so I have listed those not honored as Top 30 and Top 60 selections but nonetheless impressive, as camp “honorable mention” at the end of this report.  While this is a recap of the camp, please keep in mind that this is a very early look at underclass prospects that have much room for future growth and are all “unfinished” products.

BallisLife.com produced a camp video recap:  http://ballislife.com/2016-pangos-midwest/

Courtside Films produced several individual highlights at: www.CourtsideFilms.com

In the Top 60 “Cream of the Crop Game” it was the White team beating the Black squad 96-82 with Morgan Park’s 6’8” 2020 Shon Robinson and 6’2” 2019 Antonio Reeves (Kentwood/Chicago IL) standing out.

The Top 30 Game was about as well-played and competitive “cream of the crop” game in the history of the Pangos All-Frosh/Soph Camps.  6’3” 2020 Brandon Weston (St. John Northwestern Military Academy/Delafield WI) hit a 35-foot shot as time expired to lift the Black squad over the White team 112-111.  6-2 2019 Kejuan Clements (Simeon/Chicago IL) led all scorers with 21 points.

                           

 Talented and versatile 6’9” 2019 Patrick McCaffery (West/Iowa City IA) was impressive all camp long and his dominance was rewarded in being named the Kevon Looney overall camp MOP.

I highlight those players selected for the Top 30 Cream of the Crop Game below.

 

 

(in alphabetical order)

Mohammed  Alausa           6'3"     2019   University High Lab (Chicago IL)
Wiry strong WG is an effective slashing scorer and tenacious defender.

Dachaun Anderson           6’6”     2019   Leo Catholic (Chicago IL)
Strong, athletic and physical combo-forward was a regular visitor to the glass here and has all the tools to be a terrific defender at the next level.  Love the intensity and motor of this Jae Crowder-typeplayer.

           

Patrick Baldwin Jr.             6'5"     2021   Haven MS (Evanston IL)
Smooth and skilled swingman has a great feel and all-around game for a player his age/grade.  This high-major in the making is the son of Northwestern assistant Patrick Baldwin Sr. and also an “A” student.

Detalian Brown Jr              6'2"     2019   Morton West (Berwyn IL)
Assertive WG is quick to the cup off the dribble and is an excellent on-ball defender.

Nimari Burnett                     6’2”     2020   Morgan Park (Chicago IL)
Promising young wing with nice range on his jump shot.  High-major potential.

Sincere Callwood               6’4”     2020   Simeon (Chicago IL)
Active wing-forward has an impressive motor and is a great competitor that makes plays at both ends.

Kejuan Clements                6'2"     2019   Simeon (Chicago IL)
High scoring guard is a spot-up shooter with legitimate 3-point range.  Clements also can get to the cup with regularityviause of nifty hesitation and cross-over dribbles.  Underrated passer and very good defender too.

Nolan Foster                        6'10"  2019   Mattawan (Mattawan MI)
Very improved center prospect moves well and competes on every play.  Very good student has grown 4 inches since we saw him last at last year’s Pangos Midwest Fr/So Camp.

Malik Hall                              6'5"     2019   Sunrise Christian (Wichita KS)
Strong swingman with bounce also has a nice mid-range game.  Chicago native is also a solid rebounder and defender.

Trayce Jackson-Davis      6'8"     2019   Center Grove (Greenwood IN)
Skilled PF can finish with authority at the rim and has a variety of moves in the paint that makes him a legitimate and consistent double-figure per game scorer.  Son of former NBA player Dale Davis is a yery good rebounder and shot-blocker that had 14 points/6 rebounds/4 blocks in Top 30 Game.

Markese Jacobs                 6'0"     2019   Uplift (Chicago IL)
Kansas-bound athletic PG has drawn comparison to fellow Windy City native Sherron Collins.  Jacobs is explosive to the basket with an impressive pull-up jump shot that extends to the 3-point arc.  Terrific in Top 30 Game: 14 points (4 “threes”).

Lamond Johnson              6'2"     2019   Morgan Park (Chicago IL)
Strong wing guard is an excellent slashing scorer and harassing defender.

Keenan Jones                     6'3"     2019   Whitney Young (Chicago IL)

Kevon Mayers                     6’5”     2019   Bogan (Chicago IL)
Undersized but physical PF has a blue-collar mentality in the paint.  National scout Frank Burlison called Mayers the best rebounder at this camp.

Patrick McCaffery               6'9"     2019   West (Iowa City IA)
Very skilled Keith Van Horn-type hybrid forward is athletic and agile in transition.  “PMac” is an excellent face-up shooter and a very good rebounder and shot-blocker that was dominant in stretches of the camp which earned him camp MOP honors.  Excellent student too (3.6 GPA).

Dan McKeeman                  5'11"  2019   Carroll (Ft. Wayne IN)
Sharp-shooting point guard makes sound decisions with the rock. Excellent student too (4.0 GPA).

            

John-Michael Mulloy         6'8"     2019   Carmel (Carmel IN)
Very physical lefty PF has a high basketball IQ as well as a stellar 4.0 GPA.

Taeyon Neal                      6'10"  2019   Providence St. Mel (Chicago IL)
Young “big” is a work in progress but has the size and emerging skill set to be a must-track 2019 Midwest prospect.

Treye Tucker                       5'8"     2019   Christian Life (Rockford IL)
Small but flamboyant PG is exciting when he has the ball in his hands and has a very confident 3-point stroke.

Jeremiah Oden                   6'6"     2019   St. Rita (Chicago IL)
Growing WF with a legit 3-point stroke.  Excellent student too (3.8 GPA).

Jamari Sibley                       6’9”     2020   Nicolet (Milwaukee WI)
Very promising young combo-forward is long and athletic with an excellent skill set.  Sibley uses that length to rebound out of his area as well as being a formidable rim-protector.  Can use either hand on his drives to the cup and has nice range on his smooth jump shot.

Raymond Terry                  6'9"     2020   Bowman Academy (Gary IN)
Young post is not close to a finished product yet but has HM size and the strength to be recruited at the Big 10 level.

Marquise Walker                 6'0       2019   St Joseph (Westchester IL)
Very confident PG plays the position with plenty of swagger and his ball speed and ability to shoot the rock make him hard to guard.  Walker impressed in Top 30 Game and will benefit under the tutelage of long-time St. Joseph’s (Westchester IL) coach Gene Pingatore.

Justin Warren                     5'9"     2019   Whitney Young (Chicago IL)
Very quick point guard is hard to contain in transition and has a legit 3-point stroke that must be respected.  Very good student (3.5 GPA) shot the ball exceptionally well in Top 30 Game.

New York native attending school in Wisconsin is a hardworking wing that is an effective scorer that finishes well through contact.   Very good defender with nice range on jump shot.  Weston hit game winning 35-foot shot at buzzer in Top 30 Game.  Good student too.

Trayvon Williams               6'3"     2019   Valley (West Des Moines IA)
Scrappy WG is a crafty scorer that pushes the ball well on the break.
