NORWALK, Ca. – Some of the very best high school guards from the western classes of 2017 and ’18 took center stage Saturday – literally and figuratively – during Day I of the Pangos All-West Frosh/Soph Camp at Cerritos Community College.
Approximately 200 players – the bulk of high school freshmen and sophomores but there were a smattering of impressive eighth graders on hand, as well – were on hand for the annual two-day event, which attracts a lot of the elite prospects from the western region in those classes.
The first of 22 camp games scheduled to be played Sunday, spread over Falcon Gymnasium’s three playing surfaces, tip off at 9 a.m.
Two all-star games, the first scheduled for 2:30 p.m. and the second an hour later, wrap things up.
For purposes of trying to maintain some sense of focus with three games constantly being played simultaneously, Saturday I zeroed in on the games being played directly in front of me on Court II – center court.
That afforded me the opportunity to watch eight games and 15 of the 22 teams assembled from the players in attendance. The only team I watched twice was “Wyoming”.
