Future Spartans Durrell Summers and Kalin Lucas let their stars shine amid a virtual who's who of the nation's top prep players in Nike's three-day skills camp held at the corporation's campus in Beaverton, OR.

Summers and Lucas were among about 30 of the nation's top juniors and sophomores participating in the weekend event which ended yesterday.

The camp was run by former Washington State head coach Kevin Eastman who said that this camp is different from many of the so-called all star type sessions.

"It's about teaching, learning and skill development," Eastman told the Portland Tribune "We want to show young people you can work out, drill, not play much and still be cool, still be a really good player. You don't have to just go out and play and dunk and all that."

Both players were put through intensive drills designed to help them improve their production including the pick-and-roll, man-to-man defensive skills and the mid-range jump shot.

Among the coaches putting the duo through their paces were former NBA coach John Lucas, former UCLA coach Steve Lavin, former Boston Celtics assistant coach John Carroll and ex-NBA player Craig Ehlo.
