Following their team's final tune-up for the San Diego Section D2 title, 2015 La Costa Canyon HS and Pangos Basketball teammates Travis Fuller and Tommy McCarthy headed south to see the Aztec's facilities for the first time.

They met with assistant coaches Brian Dutcher and Tony Bland for about an hour and took a tour through the Fowler Athletic Center with coach Bland. The tour concluded with them running into Jamaal Franklin while he was working out in Peterson Gym.

Although both are still waiting on their first offers, there is certainly a lot of interest. "I really like the coaches at Harvard, Rice, Pepperdine, San Diego, SDSU, Davidson and Bucknell," McCarthy told me.

A similar list makes up Fuller's top schools, "I've talked to San Diego State, USD, Harvard, Stanford and Rice."

As for the strongest parts of their games, Fuller told me, "I'd have to say my shooting." McCarthy also said his shooting, and added that leading the team is among his strongest assets.

"With AAU coming up, I need to work on becoming a better facilitator and work on getting my teammates involved," McCarthy said.

"Being more physical and getting to the rim" is on Fuller's list to improve on during the club basketball season while running with Pangos.

La Costa Canyon fell to Hoover 58-50 on Saturday night, but they'll begin state playoffs at home Wednesday night against Kennedy High School. "Cutting down on turnovers and moving the ball," Fuller told me will be the keys if the Mavericks can make another state playoff run.
