Brown guest at Hoops & Hustle Camp

Cassandra Brown created a major buzz by winning the 2015 NCAA State Farm Three-Point Shootout

Cassandra Brown created a major buzz by winning the 2015 NCAA State Farm Three-Point Shootout and Battle of Champions against Canadian Kevin Pangos.

Since being a media star after showing up the boys on national TV, Brown has since played pro basketball in Poland, where she finished top-10 in scoring with 14 points a game.

The Fulton Maroons grad will be the special guest at Fulton’s Hoops &Hustle, also known as Basketball School. This will be the 32nd summer for the program.

The July 4-7 camp at Fulton Secondary is for boys and girls who will be in Grades 4-12 this fall. The College Camp for Grades 4-7 will go from 8:30 a.m.-noon, while the Pro Camp (Grades 8-12) goes from 1-5 p.m. daily. Campers receive two clinics and one game per day.

Head coach Dale Olson played for the University of Victoria Vikings under Ken Shields and has been at Fulton for 23 years, and involved in Hoops &Hustle for 29 years.

“The importance of going to basketball camp in the summer is enormous,” said Olson. “Basketball players are made in the off-season. We’ve had head coaches from several universities and the results have been phenomenal as many provincial-level players have emerged from this camp. We’re thrilled to have someone as talented as Cassandra teaching this summer.”

Brown graduated from the University of Portland Pilots with a double major in communications and sociology.

She remains the sixth all-time leading Pilot scorer with 1,396 career points. In her senior year, Brown averaged 17.9 points and 6.5 rebounds per game and shot 44 per cent from three-point range.

“This is the best fundamentals camp in B.C.” added Olson.

Camp cost is $125 and campers receive a T-shirt and basketball. Call Olson at 250-545-1348 (ext. 145) or 250-550-4105 (cell) to register.
