A Scout’s Take: Pangos All-West F/S Camp (Top Scoring Guards/Part 1)

WESTMINSTER, Ca.—Dinos Trigonis’ Pangos Frosh/Soph Camp is the ultimate stop on the Fall recruiting trail. The camp tour will also make stops in Texas, Illinois, and New Jersey. It’s a great way to get a glance of the future of high school basketball and the West Coast did not disappoint—as there were a plethora of point guard types that stole the show.

Jahmai Mashack (Etiwanda)

2021, SG, 6-foot-4, 185 pounds

Mashack is climbing the recruiting rankings not only locally, but nationally.

Joel’s Take: Mashack is skyrocketing up the recruiting rankings due to his ideal frame, mind-blowing motor, and explosiveness. He plays the game as if he was shot out of a cannon and is a straight beast while attacking the rim. His ball skills have improved as has his jump shot, especially in the mid-range area. Defensively, he suffocates opponents with is active hands, superior lateral quickness, and immense strength. 

Gabriel Quiette (Mater Dei)

2022, SG, 6-foot-3, 160 pounds

Joel’s Take: Quiette is the most gifted prospect in Mater Dei’s deep freshman class. The rangy guard has long arms, good quickness, and he can finish with either hand—usually with a nice dose of creativity. His jump shot needs to get smoother, but he does get good lift on it. His ball skills are potent in the open court—going left or right—and he’ll snap passes to open shooters. 

Myles Phillips (Bothell/WA)

2021, SG, 6-foot, 155 pounds

Joel’s Take: The best pull-up game in camp would belong to Phillips. He has a great burst off the dribble, can come to a jump stop, and his lift on his pull-up jump shot is terrific. He is more scorer than facilitator at this stage, but he does have a good feel for the game and the explosiveness to be a college player someday. 

John Cristofilis (O’Dea/WA)

2021, SG, 6-foot-4, 190 pounds

Cristofilis is a gifted all-around guard.

Joel’s Take: Arguably the most polished player in camp—although Isael Silva would have an argument—was Cristofilis. The gifted guard affects the game with his skill, savvy, and determined mind set. He has a prolific jump shot out to 23-feet and gets great lift on it. His rebounding prowess is impressive and he can lead the break and make the appropriate pass or finish through contact at the rim.

Keith Higgins (Chaminade)

2021, SG, 6-foot-2, 165 pounds

Joel’s Take: One of the more relentless players in camp was Higgins. He attacks in transition with a vengeance utiliizing his length, bounce, and scoring instincts. His burst off the dribble is quite potent and his ability to avoid contact while finishing is impressive. As his jump shot becomes more consistent (gets good lift), he should be one of the better combo-types in So-Cal.
