TUCSON – 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 Aug. 22nd through Aug. 25th, Tucson will be hosting the official Lute Olson Fantasy Basketball Camp.
Here’s a production done on past-camps with Lute Olson and Wildcat greats:
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 … 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.”
Here’s more from Thursday’s (August 8th) sportscast:
Some of the former Arizona stars that’ll be at the camp will include: Pete Williams, Matt Muehlebach, Harvey Mason, Ben Davis, Craig McMillan, Joe Turner, Reggie Geary, Kenny Lofton, Mike Bibby, Salim Stoudamire, Matt Brase and many more.
