Former Arizona Wildcats Craig McMillan, Reggie Geary, Felecity Willis, Eddie Smith, Joe Turner, Bennett Davison, Donnell Harris and Pete Williams scouted the campers at the Lute Olson Memorial Fantasy Camp Friday morning before heading off into the draft room to divide the campers into four different teams.

Arizona Women’s Basketball coordinator Briana Felix offered her expertise in helping to condition the campers in preparation for the player draft. Lute Olson’s wife, Kelly, was on hand Saturday to watch the campers compete in two games before breaking for a dinner for the alumni at the Olson home.

The campers will hit the floor again Saturday morning. Neil Katz is the director of officiating for the camp run by Mike Feder and Steve Rivera.
