Junior College Camp Lures Top Players


Markee Brown will be one of five Los Angeles City College basketball players competing in the 5th annual West Coast Junior College Camp at UC Riverside, July 15-17.

Games start at 2:45 p.m. on July 15, 9:30 a.m. on July 16 and 11 a.m. on July 17.

The three-day event features 46 players from 28 teams.

Players include 6-2 Davy Fortson of Santa Monica, former Dorsey High star, 6-5 Rashaan Johnson of Ventura and 6-4 Larry Reed of Oxnard.

Brown, a 6-2 sophomore, led the Cubs in scoring last year at 18 points a game and is considered one of the top community college prospects for next season.

Joining Brown will be sophomores Sai Tuialli, formerly of South Gate, and Derrick Brown; and freshmen Charles Adams and Calvin Patterson, formerly a Fremont guard.

Patterson, a 6-2 guard who, like Brown, is a premier three-point shooter, was a 1994 City Times All-Star First Team selection.

LACC will also be competing in the Ballstars Junior College All-American Camp July 9-11 at Vincennes University in Indiana and July 29-31 at the University of West Florida in Pensacola.

The Ballstars Camp is open to 1995 sophomores-to-be, unsigned 1994 sophomores still seeking a school and incoming junior college freshmen who want to compete.

The camp fee is $170.

Players from colleges in California, New York, Texas, Florida and Michigan will compete.
