The exciting Pangos All-American Camp took place this past week in Las Vegas, Nevada @ Bishop Gorman High School, as the event again featured some of the nation's best basketball talent, as more than (100) different top-rated national basketball prospects competed in front of many national scouts, media and (29) different confirmed NBA scouts representing (29) different NBA teams in attendance. Tournament Director Dinos Trigonis, one of the elite scouts in America, organized this amazing annual event, which featured guest speaker Van Coleman, one of the longest and most prolific basketball scouts in the history of the sport. The event was held over (3) days with skill and drill work, and concluded with two all-star games.
