Note: There was two Class of 2018 player in attendance — Spencer Freedman of Santa Monica (Santa Monica, CA) and Cassius Stanley of Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, CA). In his first camp game on Friday, Freedman made the three field goal attempts he shot and actually did a solid job defensively of staying in front of his man. The 5-foot-10 shooting guard did find some trouble when he put the ball on the floor, but he was able to hang with the competition. Freedman, who made 5-of-12 3-pointers, was one of the best spot up shooters in attendance regardless of class. Stanley, one of the top players at the 2014 Pangos Jr. All-American Camp, took a bit longer to get comfortable in the camp setting and made 1-of-5 field goal attempts in three games according to camp statistics.
