Pan Am Trials: Fountains Of Wayne

By David Scott - July 13, 2007

HAVERFORD, Pa. -- We could very well have just seen the solidification of one of the guard spots on the eventual 12 man Rio roster as UNC's Wayne Ellington displayed the skills that made him one of the nation's top freshmen last season.

With his White team trailing 22-21 with under 30 seconds left in the game, Ellington calmly sank a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left in the 15 minute game giving his side a 24-22 win over the Blues. Ellington was smooth throughout and despite the thought that upper classmen will dominate the final roster, the committee will have a hard time passing up the USA basketball-experienced sophomore-to-be.

. . . Also impressive in that first game of the night session was Randal Falker who is bringing to mind images of a Jared Dudley. Dudley was able to display an offensive side to his game throughout the year and in workouts for NBA teams and while Falker lacks that potent offensive attack he has every bit of Dudley's nose for the ball and ability to rebound.

. . . Jay Wright has been taking some extra time to coach and encourage DJ White, who you have to figure has already earned a spot.

. . . A curtain separating the court where games are being played from the court where players are running drills has been lowered to prevent balls from going astray. We went and peeked behind the curtain to see if the Wizard was there. Neither Oz's nor Westwood's appeared.
