Ewing, Mourning, Mutombo to lead Africa hoops camp

Former NBA All-Stars and Georgetown centers Patrick Ewing,

Alonzo Mourning and Dikembe Mutombo will travel to South Africa

next month for a Basketball without Borders camp.

Coaches Lionel Hollins of Memphis and Monty Williams of New

Orleans also are part of the group working the Sept. 1-4 camp, the

eighth held in South Africa.

With the NBA in a lockout, current players can’t attend the

camps, which gather young players from the region for on-court

instruction while also providing them with life skills.

It’s the first trip to Africa together for Ewing, Mourning and

Mutombo since they were part of a group that gave clinics in Kenya,

the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Africa in 1994.
