The Pangos Sweet 16 is alive and well. There was plenty of competition at the event. From Arizona, there were two teams. Quantum Elite played in the Platinum Division. Below are some of the prospects who played well in their 2nd round game against Rockfish Navy (Cali). Overall, they lost in the first round and finished the event 3-1.

Michael Saba Michael Saba 6'8" | PF Chaparral | 2022 State #NA Nation AZ 6’8 PF 2022 Chaparral 

Saba is well documented for his ability to hit mid-range jumpers as well as space the floor. Where he flourished this weekend was his finishing ability around the rim. He has terrific footwork and patience. In addition to being able to create shots for himself, he has a soft touch around the rim and is able to finish those shots with either hand.

Defensively, he rotated well and primarily guarded 4s and 5s. Further, he led the team in rebounding and competed on the glass.

Michael Rafko Michael Rafko 6'5" | SF Chaparral | 2022 State #NA Nation AZ 6’5 SF 2022 Chaparral

Rafko has good size, height and strength. He is not rushed on the floor and played with a lot of toughness and energy. He was picking up opposing guards full court and able to harass them despite his size.
