Former NBA player Tamar Slay, a Marshall University hall-of-famer, taught about 65 kids this past week how to improve their games at his two-day basketball camp at the YMCA Phil Cline Center.

Slay played for New Jersey Nets and Charlotte Bobcats during his NBA career. He also played in Israel and Italy.
