Now that Deon Thompson has finished up his stint playing for the U19 team we can focus on Wayne Ellington who is on the 12 man roster for the Pan Am games. Play opens for the US in Brazil on Wednesday night. Fox Sports had some commentary on the players during their training in Washington, D.C.
Wayne Ellington, North Carolina – “He’s really been knocking down shots. I knew he could shoot it, but when you leave him open, it’s a wrap. It’s going in. His defense has been improving.”
Of course we heard the same thing last summer from Quentin Thomas concerning Ellington’s jump shot. I can only hope it is true when the college basketball season starts.
