WOODY AUSTIN, JAY EDWARDS, AND LYNDON JONES TEAM UP FOR BASKETBALL CAMP

(Richmond, IN)--Former basketball rivals are now teaming up to teach fundamentals to kids and discourage bullying.  RHS standout and 1988 Mr. Basketball Woody Austin battled Jay Edwards and Lyndon Jones when they were at Marion and again when they were at IU and Austin was at Purdue.  Now, they’ve formed a company together called MB3 that teaches basketball and life skills to kids.  They’ll be holding a camp at Earlham College on June 12 that's open to boys and girls of all skill levels for ages 7-12.  Woody said they can still play.  "Myself, I'm a scorer.  Lyndon is a point guard and plays defense.  Jay has the jumper.  I think we can provide a lot of experience and a lot of teaching skills to the kids," Austin said.  There will be an anti-bullying theme along with basketball instruction.  "I think it will be a good time, and, hopefully, we'll see a lot of kids come out," Austin added.  More information and registration is available at mrbasketballthree.com.
