Pangos Sweet 16: Day One

Lonzo Ball, Justin Bibbins and Tra Holder were among the standouts at the first night of the Pangos Spring Sweet 16...

Tra Holder, 6-0 PG Los Angeles (Calif.) Brentwood. A strong lead guard, Holder had a solid opening game Friday night. He's got a nice mid-range game and the strength to finish inside against contact. He's not an elite athlete, but he's got decent quickness and a pretty good feel.

Joe Furstinger, 6-8 PF Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita. Furstinger isn't a big-time scorer, but he's got a solid frame, good feet and he competes very well. He did a good job Friday of rebounding outside his area and doing all the little things to help his team win.

Justin Bibbins, 5-8 PG Torrance (Calif.) Bishop Montgomery. Bibbins had a very opening night, using his quickness at both ends of the court. He's a pest on defense and he forced a number of turnovers. He knocked down a couple mid-range shots and did a good job of creating for his teammates.

Lonzo Ball, 6-3 PG/SG Chino Hills (Calif.) Hill. Ball had a terrific opening game as he made plays all over the court. He's got really good ball skills for a freshman, with good quickness and vision. His range extends out to well beyond the stripe, although shot selection can be an issue at times. He's a good, not great, athlete and his frame should fill out well.

Vance Jackson, 6-7 SF/PF Pasadena (Calif.) La Salle. Jackson's shot wasn't falling Friday night, but that's atypical, as he's got a very nice stroke with range to the stripe. He's got a very good feel and advanced skill level for a freshman. He's not an especially explosive athlete, though and it will be interesting to see how his body goes in the next few years.
