Pangos: Final Day, Part B

LONG BEACH, Calif. - The final day of Pangos All-American included a quick morning session of camp games and then a couple all-star games. Here's the final recap from Pangos.

I.J. Ready, PG: In the Top 60 All-Star game, the little point guard was especially effective on defense, where he came away with three steals, including one which he quickly pushed down court for an easy bucket on the other end. Ready also scored on a midrange jumper and a couple fast takes to the basket.

Jahmel Taylor, PG: Taylor just couldn't miss in the morning session, hitting five three-pointers pretty early into the game. Add in a floater, and it was definitely a nice performance for Taylor. There's no question that the compact guard can get hot from three and when he's feeling it, the points will add up in a hurry.

Dakarai Allen, SF: It was an up and down game in the morning session, and Allen took advantage, racking up one assist after the other in transition. He also confidently attacked the basket and hit the only three-pointer he attempted.

Christian Wood, PF: Wood was pretty active again on Sunday morning, playing hard in an up and down environment that he thrived in. He scored inside and out, hitting shots from beyond the arc and using his athleticism and long arms to convert down low.

Kevin Zabo, PG: In the Top 60 game, Zabo was an efficient scorer, confidently hitting both of this two three-point attempts - one from NBA range - while attacking the basket and converting a steal on one end for a basket on the other. The point guard ended the all-star game with a team and game-high tying 14 points.

JaQuan Newton, SG: This guy has made it very clear at this point that his goal heading into any game is to attack the basket and he did it at will once again on Sunday in the all-star game, scoring 14 points on a collection of drives to the basket, including an and-one.

* Johnathon Wilkins was making a commitment to rebound in the Top 60 game, coming away with a game-high six boards, two of which he converted for lay-ups.

* Eric Cooper has become a pretty accurate three-point shooter, and in the all-star game he hit a couple shots from beyond the arc. He also said he'll be reclassifying to 2014 and attending prep school following his final upcoming high school season.

* In the morning session, Anthony January was aggressive, scoring from all three levels, as he hit a three and midrange jumper off the bounce, while also going to the basket.

* Daniel Hamilton gave good effort in his first game, attacking the hoop and using a runner to put points on the board.

Ikenna Iroegbu said that Washington State is recruiting him the hardest.

Paul Watson picked up an offer from USC and thinks he's close to receiving offers from UNLV, UTEP and New Mexico.
