Hoops and Hugs: Basketball Camp for At-Risk Kids

AIR DATE: April 15, 2011

At-risk kids in Las Vegas will have the chance to go toe-to-toe with basketball stars at a local camp.  For the "Hoops and Hugs" two-hour event, aspiring b-ball players can play ball with two-time Olympian (and former WNBA coach and player) Nancy Lieberman and former Chicago Bulls player (and assistant coach) Mike Brown.  We talk to Coach Lieberman and some young basketball players.
***The Hoops & Hugs Las Vegas Event is Thursday, April 14, from 4-6 p.m. at the Vendrome A at Paris Las Vegas.  The participants are from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Nevada and The Embracing Project.***
