Pangos: Day Three Rundown

LONG BEACH, Calif. - Another successful Pangos All-American Camp is in the books, with Stanley Johnson taking home MVP honors. Here's a rundown of the last day of camp.

Stanley Johnson, SF – For the second year in a row, Johnson took home the camp MVP award and it was well deserved. Johnson's offensive arsenal continues to improve. At camp he was virtually impossible to stop from getting to the rim and he finished quite well through contact. His jump shot also stood out. He hit four three-pointers in the Top 30 All-Star game and it's clear he's much more confident shooting long distance shots.

Emmanuel Mudiay, PG – Mudiay was the top ranked player heading into camp and in the top 30 All-Star game, Mudiay certainly showed why. A 6-foot-3 guard, Mudiay found a way to get to the rim, tossed out a handful of assists and even hit a trio of three-pointers. For a point guard, Mudiay is so strong, but also has impressive quickness and athleticism. On top of all that, he has great body control when he's attacking the basket.

Josh Perkins, PG – One of the premier performers of the weekend, Perkins didn't disappoint on the final day. In the top 30 all-star game he connected on three three-pointers and also tossed out a handful of assists. His passing and vision are top notch and part of what makes him such a special point guard prospect. Perkins was one of the top three performers at camp this weekend.

Rashad Vaughn, SG – One of the better scorers in the 2014 class, Vaughn had his shot working in the all-star game. Vaughn hit a handful of three-pointers, but also attacked the basket. His spin move into a dunk was one of the highlights of the big game. He's proven himself as arguably the best two-guard in the 2014 class and his offensive ability is impressive. He's a strong driver going either way and he's comfortable making mid-range shots as well. Vaughn put together a strong camp.

Omar Sherman, PF – The Texas native managed to impress at times at the Pangos camp. He has a strong body and he's not afraid to throw it around in the paint. Sherman also has an ability to score on the offensive end. In the Top 30 All-Star game he stepped out and hit a three and a 18-footer. He also has a consistent hook on the block.

Casey Benson, PG – The skilled guard out of Arizona impressed in both the morning session and in the all-star game. Benson is a good shooter out to 22-feet, but he also handles the ball well and can pass. He's crafty with the ball and made smart decisions throughout his time at camp.

Justin Bibbins, PG - The speedy little point guard really played well in the morning session, using his pull-up jumper to score points. While Bibbins had been getting buckets with his floater floater in other camp settings, the pull-up jumper was also clicking on Sunday morning. It was a statement camp for the rising senior.

Chris McCullough, PF - On Sunday morning, McCullough used his size and athleticism to get out in transition and finish above the rim. He showed some pretty good footwork on the way to the basket, and once he was heading to the rim, there wasn't much getting in the way, especially with his quick first step for his size.

Craig Victor, PF - Victor was a beast in the morning session, not taking it easy on the rim with one transition dunk after the next. Victor has improved his shooting, as evidenced by the catch and shoot three-pointer he nailed in that game, and also scored on the offensive glass. It was a very successful camp for the five-star prospect.

Elijah Thomas, C – Thomas has had a great spring and it didn't stop in Long Beach. A talented post prospect, Thomas had his offensive package on display in the Top 30 all-star game. Although he didn't get a ton of touches, when he did he favored a left jump hook. He also ran the floor for a dunk and scored on a reverse move in the paint.

Rex Pflueger, SG - It was a really impressive Top 60 game for Pflueger, who was just drilling three-pointers, mostly off the catch, but he did hit a pull-up three from NBA range. Pflueger also showed his athleticism with a couple breakaway dunks, and had some really good defensive anticipation, stealing and/or deflecting passes.

Nate Grimes, SF - Grimes is coming along and he has a weapon with his jump shot, which he showed on Sunday morning. The more he can add to his game from there, the better of a prospect he's going to be at the end of the day, but his size, frame and shooting give him a nice foundation to build on.

Thon Maker, C - In the morning session, Maker was playing hard as always, blocking shots, scoring on the offensive glass - the defense couldn't really contain him there - and getting out in transition and scoring easily. He gets in trouble when he puts the ball on the floor, but he's really tough to stop around the basket in a setting like this.

* Michael Humphrey, a 6-foot-9 big man, competed at a high level on Sunday. He contested shots, ran the floor looking to score and finished off plays in the paint. He was active on the glass, especially the offensive end.

* Future Arizona State big man Connor MacDougall plays with effort and energy on both ends. He hits the glass, scores well with his right hand and runs the floor well. He had a strong camp.

* Jacob Hammond, a 2014 post out of Oklahoma, made plays with his athleticism and motor during the Top 60 game, finishing with 12 points and 12 rebounds.

* Brandon Jennings was in attendance to watch little brother Terrence Phillips, a 2015 point guard with quickness and vision. Phillips had 17 points and 5 assists in the Top 60 game.

* Vance Jackson is a 2016 forward who has a shot that you have to respect, and he had the jumper working on Saturday afternoon, ending up with 14 points to go with 5 boards.

Michael Humphrey has heard from Arizona State, Portland, Portland State and Utah State.

Nate Grimes holds interest from Arizona State, UCLA, UMass, UNLV, Colorado, Auburn, Oregon State and Marquette.

Vance Jackson has offers from UConn, Washington and Arizona. He has interest from UCLA, Kansas, USC, Michigan State, UNLV and U.C. Irvine.
