DeJuan Wheat basketball camp tips off at Basketball Academy

Louisville, KY (WAVE) - Former U of L basketball star DeJuan Wheat is hosting a camp this week at the Basketball Academy.

"Hopefully I can get a future Card out of my group, boy and girl," Wheat told WAVE 3 Sports. "It's just great, the fans have been so wonderful to me and this is something that I am going to do a couple of times a year, all year, every year."

He is getting an assist this week from former U of L teammate Jason Osborne.

"For me it's great, I grew up learning the game of basketball and I would love to share some of that with other kids and kind of help them out along the way," Osborne said.

The camp will have another session at the Basketball Academy from July 16-19, and runs daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information on sign ups and camp costs, go to
