What:  

adidas Double Pump West Coast All Star Camp

Where:  

Cal State Dominguez Hills

  

1000 E. Victoria, Carson, CA

When:  

Session #1:  July 7 through 10, 2000

Who:  

300 top players, D-I coaches

The Double Pump All-Star Games will take place this morning at Cal State Dominguez Hills, starting at 10:20 a.m., preceded by the "Great Eight" tournament, which is a sort of frantic, unbelievably quick double elimination tournament which employs a running clock, in which all of the camp teams compete for two separate championships.  The results of the first game will determine which teams go to the winner's championship bracket and which teams will got to the consolation championship bracket.  Basically, teams can lose one game but only during the first round. . . lose after thant and you're done for the day. . . well, that is unless a player has been selected to play in one of the four all-star games which will follow the "Great Eight'.

Bakari Altheimer greatly improved his status as one of the best point guards on the west coast with his performances at the 1st session of WCAS

The All-Star schedule looks like this:

10:20 a.m. Freshman-Sophomore All Star Game (Top 18)
10:40 a.m. Junior Class All Star Game (Top 20)
11:10 a.m. 100% Game--The Camp's Top 16 Hustlers
11:30 a.m. Senior Class All Star Game (Top 20)
12:00 p.m. Best of the Best (Top 20 in Camp)

As we sit here writing this (at well after midnight, in the early hours of Monday morning), we don't have any real idea who will be on the any of the four All-Star teams. . .  but we've got more than a good idea about who we believe has played well at the camp,  and who we think the likely suspects are to be chosen,   although we're not going to make any predictions about which game a particular player might be selected to play in.  And more importantly, we could be entirely wrong about some guys:  Some we've listed may not get selected at all to play in the All-Star games;  others we haven't listed will be selected, and we're not even going to guess who will be picked for the Top 20 game or the 100% game. . .  In other words, the list below is strictly our opinion, and no one else's .

And where a player has had one or more excellent performances (again in our opinion) we've indicated so by using  asterisks (or stars); the more the better.  We've reserved the "three star" designation for those players who had truly MVP type performances for their teams during the course of the camp, at least in our opinion.   And just to point the latter guys out, here they are:

Seniors:  Kyle Jackson, Bakari Altheimer, Anthony Davis and Marko Mihailovic--all of the had outstanding camps and really helped their recruiting among a number of college coaches we spoke with
Juniors:  Keion Kindred-- had a really strong first two days, faded a little Sunday, but then so did everyone as fatigue set in. But those first two days were just so outstanding, that they took him to another level. 
Sophs: Kevin Bell, Jr.--quickness, speed, court vision, finishes, scores, makes everyone around him better.  What more can you ask?
Frosh:   Actually the top frosh is just a 7th grader who is going into the 8th grade next fall:  Andre McGhee, whose performances have been about as memorable as we can recall for a young player, and in each of the games he played, he scored more than 20 ppg, mostly on three pointers, often while being guarded by much bigger players, many high school seniors.   We're not making any predictions that he'll be chosen for anything other than the Frosh-Soph game, but there was a lot of serious talk among the coaches in attendance on Sunday about the "Best of the Best" game. . . . but then they wouldn't want to blow this kid's head up too big. . . . or would they?

In any event, what follows is a list of guys we think played especially well during the first session of the Pump West Coast All-Star Camp:

Following the conclusion of the Best of the Best game the remaining players on hand will check out, and things will get ready to roll again on Tuesday with the Second Session of Double Pump West Coast All Stars Camp. . . . and later today, the Rim Rattler, which will run until Thursday at Lynwood HS. . . and then Vegas. . .  and then the Best of Summer . . . and then Berkeley, and finally for some, the Oregon Nike Challenge. . . .

We'll have another report up shortly on some of the top players at the camp.  Stay tuned.
