Alexander, Dockery share Pangos East F/S honor

WEST DEPTFORD, NJ – The Dinos Trigonis-fronted Pangos All-Frosh/Soph Camp fall tour came to another conclusion Sunday afternoon at the River Winds Center with its fourth stop that lured many of the very best players from among the sophomore (2020) and freshmen (’21) classes in the east.

The camp, and the Top 30 All-Star game, was highlighted by the presence of two of the best sophomore guards in the east – and beyond – in Posh Alexander and Marcus Dockery, based in the Bronx and Washington, DC, respectively.

The muscular Alexander came into the camp with a bigger national reputation than did Dockery, largely based upon his appearance at this cap a year ago and some trips to Colorado Springs for USA Basketball Junior National Team camps.

They didn’t guard each other a whole lot Sunday afternoon but each played pretty well, as Alexander finished with 15 points, 10 of those in the second half, via power drives and finishes and – despite not being considered an exceptional jump shooter – a couple of 3 in the dark jersey-wearing team’s 88-87 victory over Dockery and his white jersey wearers.

The left-handed Dockery, keeping with his modus operandi in four “camp” games when he knocked in 20-plus 3s, hit two deep, deep 3s to start the contest but dropped in just one more 3 the rest of the way thought picking up some buckets a couple of cuts and slick drives to tally 17 points.

The guards shared the camp’s Most Outstanding Player honors for the week while 6-foot-8 Dyondre Dominguez – who dominated big stretches of the game with jump shots, rip-the-rim finishes and a few nifty passes that led to layups while scoring 14 points, five rebounds and three blocked shots to bag Top 30 All-Star MOP honors.

Freshman point guard Ryan Myers helped pace the white-jersey-wearing crew to an 87-85 win in the Top 60 affairs to edge the field for game MOP honors.

In a few weeks (I’m boarding an airliner in Philadelphia, bound for Europe, in an hour or so and won’t be back in the U.S. of A until Nov. 12.

Something after that I’ll put together my “All-Pangos Frosh/Soph” picks for 2018.

“I’ve known Frank since he was a student at Long Beach State and no writer ever worked harder at studying and understanding basketball. When I was coaching I always put more stock into what he said about (high school) players than anyone I knew. As far as I’m concerned, he’s the best there is at evaluating the potential of basketball players.”
Lute Olson, Hall of Fame and NCAA Championship Winning Coach

"I have known Frank for 15 years and there is no one outside of those in the Clippers' organization that I trust more than Frank when it comes to player evaluations."
Neil Olshey, Portland Trail Blazers' General Manager

“Frank Burlison has always been a proponent of my talent and, even more so, of my potential – far before it was evident to most. Even as a smaller and determined player who was being overlooked by most high-major colleges and national scouting services, Frank always served as a friendly voice who got me into the door to most events to help me prove my talents.”
Russell Westbrook, the No. 4 overall selection in the 2008 NBA Draft out of UCLA and an all-star guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder
