The Lute Olson Fantasy Camp opened up Thursday night with a “Meet & Greet” reception held at the BIRD Modern Provisions & Bar on North Oracle. Lute Olson and several of his former players met with the campers and each took turns recalling intimate and humorous stories from their Wildcat days.
Jason Terry, Corey Williams, Joe Turner, Pete Williams, Ben Davis, Craig McMillan, Matt Brase, Matt Muehlebach and Reggie Geary held court along with University of Arizona assistant coach Lorenzo Romar. Former team manager and current FOX Sports host Todd Walsh introduced each player.
The camp will run from Friday to Sunday and is presented by local sports management legend Mike Feder and longtime reporter and current AllSportsTucson.com writer Steve Rivera.
