Vegas, West Coast: Day Three

Hollis Thompson has a big game Thursday morning and a promising junior big man from Oregon looks good in the afternoon...

Las Vegas, Nev. Day three in Las Vegas features performances by Joe Kammerer, Hollis Thompson and Chris Cunningham

Aaron Dotson, 6-2 SG Seattle (Wash.) Rainier Beach. Dotson struggled in his game yesterday. Average body, pretty good athlete, but doesn't really have anything that stands out about his game. Release isn't great – not a real shooter.

Hollis Thompson, 6-6 SF Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola. Thompson had a terrific all-around game on Thursday. Knocked down several three-pointers and made plays all over the court. Still needs to add weight and strength, but will eventually be a very good player at the college level.

Joe Kammerer, 6-9 C Eugene (Ore.) North Eugene. Big kid with nice frame and more nimble than you might think. Good understanding of how to play and shows signs of a solid low-post game. Can go to either shoulder with a little hook. Very intriguing at the mid major level.

Chris Cunningham, 6-7 C Pomona (Calif.) Diamond Ranch. One of the more skilled posts in the west. Cunningham can score in a variety of ways and he has very good footwork in the paint. Just a fair athlete, but his feel and skill level are above average.

Matt Borton, 6-4 SG Yakima (Wash.) West Valley Yakima. Just a fair athlete, but stroke is very good and a solid feel for the game.

Jeremy Tyler, 6-10 C San Diego (Calif.) High. Struggled Thursday and never really got in the flow of the game. Big-time body, has some talent, but still has a long way to go.

Terrence Jones, 6-7 PF Portland (Ore.) Jefferson. Has some point forward type attributes, but decision-making and shot selection have been very spotty. Settles for way too many bad jumpers.

Kevin Johnson, 6-8 C Gardena (Calif.) Serra.The big fella comes off the bench for California Supreme and doesn't get a lot of time. But there's no doubt he's one of the top posts in his class. Big time frame, soft hands and a developing low-post game.

Joe Kammerer said he's hearing from Santa Clara, Pepperdine, UC Irvine, Portland State, Montana, Montana State and Northern Colorado. He said Northern Colorado is the only offer to date.

Steven Bjornstad had coaches from Washington, Gonzaga and Cal following him around.

Joe Kammerer had Portland State, BYU, Boise State, UC Riverside and UC Irvine watching his game.

Aaron Dotson played in front of coaches from USC, Washington, San Diego State and Cal.
