The exciting annual Pangos Full-Court Press All-West Camp, which usually takes place in Los, Angeles, California, and has for 20+ years, was moved this year to St. George, Utah, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Tournament Director Dinos Trigonis brought together one of his best installments of the camp ever last weekend in Utah, as (240) different basketball prospects came together to compete in front of the numerous regional scouts and media in attendance. Prospects from such states as Utah, Nevada, California, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, New Mexico, Wyoming, Missouri and Maryland all competed over the two day camp.
Arizona Preps made the trip to this year's event, and covered the event from start to finish. Here are many of the top individual performers, and there were many, that caught my attention during the camp, starting with the top upperclassmen prospects from this year's camp (In no particular order) . . .
