Over 100 campers participated in the first annual Luther Riley Celebrity Basketball Camp held at Alcorn State University on June 26-30, 2011. The all-star studded event provided boys ages 5-17 with basketball and life skills training that will help them to be successful.
Demarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings served as celebrity coach on June 29, putting on a dazzling display of dunking for the campers, and taking part in most of the drills, as well as in a question and answer session. The camp concluded with Mo Williams of the L.A. Clippers, and Trey Johnson of the L.A. Lakers, participating in the program on June 30. Williams and Johnson also paid a visit to Alcorn’s President M. Christopher Brown II and the ASU Foundation Board during their quarterly meeting.
