Scores of adults excited for Lute Olson fantasy basketball camp

Posted: Updated:

How would -you- like the chance to get up, close and personal with Arizona Wildcat Coaching Legend Lute Olson?   Well, here's -your- chance!  From September 7th through the 10th, Tucson will be hosting the official Lute Olson Fantasy Basketball Camp

Longtime Tucson-area and U of A sports writer Steve Rivera, who's teaming up with Old Pueblo sports guru Mike Feder to help organize the camp, said, "When we came up with the idea about a year ago, we thought it'd be perfect for the guys who are from 30 to 50 (years-old) who kind of grew up in the 80's and 90's and saw some of Lute's best teams."

Some of the former Arizona stars that'll be at the camp will include: Damon Stoudamire, Mike Bibby, Pete Williams, Matt Muehlebach, Corey Williams, Reggy Geary, Ben Davis and many more!

"It should be a lot of good games. You don't have to be a great player to be in it," said Rivera, "This is more about a fun weekend with the guys.  Kind of telling stories, listening to stories, -kind of like behind the scenes of what happened back in the day-- But, from any athlete, if you're good, not so good, or just want to have fun we invite everyone. Because it should be a good weekend."

If you'd like more information on the camp, you can e-mail Rivera at: steve.rivera95@gmail.com.  You can also go to the camp's official facebook site here.
