Jeremy Pargo 6-2 208 PG Gonzaga Jr. -- 11.7 ppg, 41% fg, 29% 3p, 75% ft, 3.3 rpg, 4.7 apg, 4.7 tog

After a slow start, Pargo had a monster final game with 20 points. He's a tremendous athlete as he's shown repeatedly with dunks over opponents throughout his college career. He fought through injuries this year but saw his numbers dip in the process. This week he struggled to display great point guard skills, the area of his game that scouts were most interested in seeing. He should definitely make use of his senior season, as returning to Gonzaga will give him a much better chance at sticking with an NBA team. While this may have been a good opportunity for Pargo to hear what scouts feel he should work on, you can't help but wonder if this camp did little more than expose his weaknesses. Pargo's 4.7 turnovers were the most by anyone and serves as proof that he still has work to do to become a point guard. While Pargo has the potential to develop into a first round combo guard next year, he'll need to continue to improve upon his playmaking ability from the lead guard position.

It's interesting to see Jeremy referred to as a "combo guard".

To me, he is a true point guard like a Chris Paul. I think of players like Matt Bouldin or Brandon Roy as combo guards, players with shooting guard skills but that can also run the offense and play the 1 or 2.
