Former Basketball Star Visits Livingston

by Ryan Peterson

Monica Lamb has won a state championship, Olympic gold medals and three WNBA titles.  For the former Houston Comet, that's not good enough.   Lamb is in Livingston this week holding her basketball and books camp.

Lamb will be all over East Texas in the next month.   She says the Monica Lamb Wellness Foundation wanted to reach out to kids living in areas affected by Hurricane Katrina.   Her camp has plenty of basketball, but she also sends her campers to the classroom.

"We help them to understand that if they are interested in basketball or are good at basketball, they are already good math students. Because you have to be, to be a good basketball player."

The camp will be in Lufkin July 9th.
