LAS VEGAS, Nev.- 2015 five-star guard Tyler Dorsey propelled Belmont Shore to a championship win over Earl Watson Pangos Elite in the Pangos Spring Spectacular.
Tyler Dorsey dominated the championship game.
Dorsey put up a monster stat line in the championship game, going for 27 points, nine rebounds, six assists and four blocks. Most importantly, he held Tra Holder, who was coming off a monster semifinal game, to just two points. Super athletic and 6-4, Dorsey is an imposing physical force as a point guard.
Dorsey's running mate Daniel Hamilton put up 19 points.
Earl Watson Pangos Elite made it to the final game on a buzzer beater by Holder against the Utah Prospects. Holder had his way with the Utah guards and scored 31 points n the game. A physical guard who plays low to the ground and has an extra gear, Holder is one of the better point guards in the 2014 class. Kyle Lowry came to mind while watching Holder play.
Skilled left handed forward Brekkott Chapman kept the Utah Prospects in the game with EW Pangos Elite. Scoring 25 points, Chapman hit interior shots with either hand, was the key to the press break, made numerous quality passes and rebounded well. A prospect who will move up the 2014 rankings, Chapman has a game quite similar to Austin Daye.
There simply can't be a better passer in the 2014 class than Josh Perkins. In fact Perkins is one of the best passers I've scouted over the past 10 years. He sees the game a couple plays ahead of everyone else on the court.
* Five-star wing Daniel Hamilton picked up offers over the past week from Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and the new staffs from UCLA and USC. Connecticut, who is high on Hamilton's list, is expected to host him on an official visit May 1st.
* Josh Perkins, who impressed with his extravagant passing ability, has a loose school list of nine schools- Colorado, Gonzaga, Kansas, Baylor, USC, UCLA, Denver, Creighton, New Mexico and Minnesota. The list is loose because of the coaching changes at four of his top nine schools. Perkins had officially visited New Mexico under head coach Steve Alford, who is now at UCLA. This coming weekend Perkins will officially visit Gonzaga. Head coach Mark Few was at Perkins' games on Sunday.
* Tra Holder holds offers from USC and San Diego State. He is expecting offers soon from Arizona State and Florida State, who watched him work out on Monday. He is also hearing from Oregon State, Arizona, UCLA, Boston College, Oregon and Gonzaga.

* The Las Vegas Prospects have an intriguing trio of athletic perimeters players. Point guard Shaquille Carr thrives in transition.
