Former Arizona Wildcats Craig McMillan, Reggie Geary, Felecity Willis, Eddie Smith, Joe Turner, Bennett Davison, Donnell Harris and Pete Williams led the campers of the Lute Olson Memorial Fantasy Camp through an early set of games Saturday morning before heading off to watch the University of Arizona practice at the Richard Jefferson Gym.
Former Fred Snowden standout Bob Elliott made an appearance and first-year head coach Tommy Lloyd had the legends speak to his current group of players and the two groups merged for a cheer before the practice began.
The campers and former players got an up close view of the practice and they were allowed to interact with the Wildcats after the practice was over. The Pima College coaching staff was also in attendance with head coach Brian Peabody leading the way.
Later, the campers, legends and Kelly Olson gathered at the new Buena Vida Restaurant located on North Stone to watch a replay of the 1997 championship game. Harris and Davison provided commentary during the replay.
Arizona Women’s Basketball coordinator Briana Felix is preparing the campers for the final day of games on Sunday.
