Pangos Evaluations: Part B was in attendance for the first night of the Pangos All-American camp and here is a group of evaluations, including Anthony Bennett, Stephen Domingo, and more.

CARSON, Calif.- The 2011 Pangos All-American Camp kicked off Friday and many Arizona prospects were in attendance. Here are some evaluations from night one.


Anthony Bennett: The forward was teamed up with Andre Drummond in a matchup against Isaiah Austin and Archie Goodwin. While the big men had a pretty good one-on-one battle, Bennett took it upon himself to expose whichever opponent was guarding him at the time.

It seemed like Bennett did not miss a shot as he was money on the break, dunking in every which way including an exclamation point, as he had a thunderous dunk over Austin near the end of the game.

He was definitely feeling good about his game during the first session of Pangos and people were very impressed with his play. Bennett has done a great job of getting his shot to where it is and he hit a few three-point shots Friday night.

Bennett is definitely seeing his stock rise and if he can continue his strong play, he will make a case to shoot up the rankings.


Jabari Bird: Bird was able to make a living at the rim on Friday night and it was largely due to the fact that his jump shot was not falling. Right now he is not getting a lot of lift on his shots and they are just falling short.

His shot not falling does not discourage him from doing the other parts of his game. Bird got his first basket off of a tip back dunk, which he seems to get at least one of every game.

He is really good at attacking the glass and his energy on the court allows him to score in several different ways, even if his shot is not falling.

Stephen Domingo: Right now the best part of Domingo's game continues to be his jump shot. He recognizes that it is a weapon at this point and is showing that he keeps working at his shooting.

Domingo is poised with his shooting and has even developed a quick release. The small forward is becoming very good with his spot up jump shot and even in a game with a lot of up and down play, he knew where to go for his spots and was successful at it.

Friday was a good start to the camp for Domingo and you can expect him to continue to shoot it well throughout the weekend.


Stanley Johnson: The 2014 wing did a good job of keeping up with the older players at Pangos. At that age the best thing you could do is play with energy and with confidence and it seemed that Johnson did that on Friday.

He still had trouble finishing in traffic and around the rim, but he was able to hit a few jump shots and a three-pointer. Johnson made a few nice passes and played good defense as well. At this stage in his career he is definitely working on mastering the little things on the court.

Shaqquan Aaron: We are still getting introduced to Aaron's game and it is not a secret that the already 6-foot-6 wing is very impressive. He has long arms and a good frame to add weight in the coming years.

On Friday he made mid-range jumpers and also attacked the rim well. Aaron has great feel for the game and unselfishly distributed the ball around.

He is not as aggressive, as he probably could be playing with older players, but you had to like what you saw from Aaron on day one.
