MIKEYV just brought it to my attention that the PANGOS ALL AMERICA CAMP is running right now...some top players are ANDRE DRUMMOND, SHABAZZ MUHAMMAD and ISAIAH AUSTIN...watch it LIVE if you want!!!...http://www.ihigh.com/westcoasthoops/
It's kinda confusing to see whos in what games, but I found the game with the 2 top High School players in the nation ANDRE DRUMMOND vs ISAIAH AUSTIN...http://www.ihigh.com/westcoasthoops/broadcast_165059.html?silverlight=1...DRUMMOND is #115 on the blue team, and AUSTIN is the tallest person on the red team...the footage is grainy, but it is what it is.
AUSTIN is listed as a legitamte 7 footer while DRUMMOND is listed 6-10 or 6-11 depending on where you look...if you PAUSE video right around the 1:35 mark they appear to be the same height(they are facing us lined up for the free throw)...obviously you can tell im BOOOOORED...LOL!!!
Found this link with a bunch of tweets on the battle of Drummond v. Austin, would be pretty epic too watch that, especially with two guys damn near 7 feet going up against each other. I can not get the Silverlight to work, so I can not see the vids, but any reporting on standouts would be cool.
Also found this:
AUSTIN is clearly taller than DRUMMOND...I'm about half way through the game, and its a good 1....DRUMMOND is clearly out playing AUSTIN...from my accounts at the moment, DRUMMOND has 13pts 5reb and 1 blk while AUSTIN has 7pts 4reb and 2blk...if you go to around 23.25 in the video, you'll see a beautiful step back fadaway from AUSTIN then DRUMMOND immediately come down the court and hit a nice soft turn around floater.
I can't get the Silverlight to work either.
Just finished the game and DRUMMOND out dueled AUSTIN...final stats(from what i could tell) DRUMMOND-17pts 9reb and 2blks while AUSTIN-9pts 5reb and 4blks...considering this was a run and gun game and favored guard play, I think they both played well. DRUMMOND was just obviously better. If you go to around 36:45 you'll see a beautiful spin move from Andre on Isaiah plus the foul!!! DROMMOND missed the free throw however, something he did allot during this game. Definitely needs to work on that.
When's the next time they both play?
I guess this kid played on Isaiah Austin's team at Pangos, and is in the Class of 2015, which means he will only be a freshman in HS next year. Says he is going to Bishop Gorman, which is the same school that Shabazz Muhammad (and his brother Rashad, 2013), Ben Carter (PF 2012), Rosco Allen (PF 2012) and Demeteris Morant (PF 2012) go too. He is already 6'9, have no idea whether he will grow more, but of course it is certainly possible. He is one of two 2015 players at Pangos (other a 6'4 kid from Cali named Tyler Dorsey).
Heres the ROSTERS for who's in the CAMP...http://www.ihigh.com/westcoasthoops/article_69196.html...I noticed ARIK ARMSTEAD # 100 for the MARYLAND team is at that camp...hes the #1 ranked HS FOOTBALL player in the nation by SCOUT.com!!!...the main ALL STAR game is 2 morrow night, so I imagine they will play against each other LIVE then...its ashame you cant see this...there are so maaaaaany games...live and archived...I'm in HEAVEN...LOL!!!
I know all about ZIMMERMAN..he was the last invite to the camp!!!...the 8th grader that I want to see play whos at the camp is TYLER DORSEY...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcXPiJTFZ0w&feature=related
heres the REMAINING SCHEDULE...match it up to the roster to see what games you want to watch...http://www.ihigh.com/westcoasthoops/article_69197.html
Word is that he might play football and basketball at USC, apparently Kevin O'Neill is cool with it. ESPN ranks him as the #33 PF in the class. Zach Banner is another top rated OT (actually an inch taller and a few pounds heavier than Armstead) and he is another player who wants to play both. He played for Seattle Rotary Select in the EYBL, and ESPN has him rated as the #27 Center prospect. His biological father is Lincoln Kennedy, and Zach is 6'9/310 (Armstead is 6'8/280). Another interesting fact is Seantrel Henderson, whom many listed as the #1 player in the Class of 2010 Football, played on the same AAU basketball team as Harrison Barnes. A lot of these guys are just amazing athletes.
