For the second week in a row, the Top 30 Cream of the Crop game was the highlight of the weekend as the top talent at the Pangos All-Frosh/Soph Camp in LaGrange, IL battled it out in another well played All-Star game. It wasn’t the war we saw in Dallas, but it was a well-played and competitive game that went down to the wire with the White squad edging the Black by a final score of 92-89 on a three pointer by 6’4 Adam Miller with about twenty seconds to play on the clock.

The White squad was led by Game MVP 6’3 Tyler Beard who finished with 13 points and 6 assists. He was joined by Adam Miller who also equaled his team high 13 points, while 6’4 swing man Katrell Rainey pitched in 12 points and 6’5 Chris Grubbs added 7 points and made big plays n the glass and defensively to seal the victory for the White squad.

The Black squad was led by 6’1 D.J. Stewart with 15 points (Team MVP), while 6’1 Ahmad Bynum wasn’t far behind with 13 points. They got support from 6’9 Even Brauns who added 11 points and 6’1 Ty Foster who chipped in 10 points in the game.

Despite, not having a huge All-Star game, 6’8 freshman wing forward Patrick Baldwin (Pictured above) from Milwaukee Hamilton joined 6’8 sophomore Isaiah Jackson as the camp Co-MVP’s they were clearly a notch above the rest in a solid group of future D-1 prospects. The Class of 2022 provided a little excitement at the camp as two young forwards, 6’6 Kamari Lands out of Indianapolis, and 6’7 Chicago prospect A.J. Casey made opening statements that will be among the best in their class as they head into high school next year.

All-in-All the Pangos Midwest wasn’t as deep as last week in Dallas, but the play in the All-Star game proved there was a quality group at the top to build on for the future in the middle of the country. With that in mind here is a look at the top fifty plus prospects, along with a group of potential breakthroughs that we feel are worthy of mention that we watched this past weekend at the Park and Recreation Center in Lagrange, IL.

We’d like to thank our good friend, Ronnie Flores from Ball is Life, as he helped compile the above rankings with me while we waited at the Midway Airport in Chicago for our flight home to Las Vegas. We will be at the Pangos All-Frosh/Soph East in West Deptford, NJ this coming weekend, then we will be updating our rankings of the Classes of 2020 & 2021!
