We couldn't make it out to Dinos Trigonis' Fullcourt Press Frosh-Soph camp this weekend due to some personal business, but more than a few people were there to watch what happened and there was a lot of good hoops action at the Warrior Center.  Dinos sent us a couple of e-mails and we want to pass along some of the info here, which can also be found at his own site, Fullcourtpress.net.    Here's what we know about the players who were selected to play in the top camp games, as well as Dinos' own observations about those top players:

The 3rd annual Fullcourt Press All Frosh/Soph Camp presented by Pangos was held this past weekend (October 11-12) at the Warrior Center (Cypress CA).

Dave Miller (MVPCamp.com) and David Greenwood (former UCLA and NBA star) were outstanding guest instructors. 50 players were selected to participate in two "cream of the crop games" on Sunday afternoon. Video tapes of those two games are available from Videoscouting.com
