Ep. 140 - Pangos All-American Festival, Jeremy Fears Interview!

On Episode 140 of the Ballislife In The Paint Show, hosts Ronnie Flores, Ani Umana and Chelsea Hopkins go hard on the Pangos All-American Festival, which brought together 35 of the top players in the nation to compete for regional bragging rights!

The ITP crew brings on Michigan St. commit Jeremy Fears (Joliet West, IL) to talk about his MVP performance for the Midwest club. The 2023 point guard was named co-MVP along with Flory Bidunga, the 2024 big man out of Kokomo (Ind,) who might be the No. 1 prospect in his class. Fears talks about playing with Bidunga for the first time, the competition level at the event, why he chose Michigan St., and how he's helping to recruit the Spartans' incoming class.

The ITP Crew breaks down the event's top performers, while Ani also talks about the top performers at the recent TCU camp.

Chelsea also dishes on the WNBA playoffs as the conference finals heat up and gives her personal insight on a special 2022 WNBA All-Rookie selection.
