From September 7th-10th, Arizona basketball fans will have the chance to live out their dream of being coached by the legend himself, Lute Olson.  Olson is teaming up with Mike Feder and Steve Rivera, both sports fixtures here in Tucson, putting on the Lute Olson Fantasy Basketball camp.

The camp will give basketball lovers the opportunity to interact with coach Olson, as well as plenty other UA alumni including: Mike Bibby, Corey Williams, Reggie Geary, Ben Davis, Pete Williams, and Damon Stoudemire to name a few.

Olson says "I guarantee I won't grab them by the jersey if they don't make the right move (laughing), but I didn't grab my players by the jersey, either. I didn't use any cuss words, either. They can be sure that's not going to be allowed either."  

Basketball practices will take place at the Sporting Chance Center.  Campers will receive a personalized Arizona basketball uniform, plus an autographed Lute Olson basketball.

The deadline to register is August 11th.
