This weekend, aspiring young basketball players can take advantage of an opportunity to learn a few tricks from one of the Colorado Buffaloes’ current NBA stars.

Andre Roberson, a forward with the Oklahoma City Thunder and the owner of the top two single-season rebounding totals in CU history, will host the Andre Roberson Basketball Camp on Saturday and Sunday at Rangeview High School in Aurora.

The camp is for grades six through 12 and costs $150. The entry fee includes an autograph session with Roberson as well as two camp T-shirts. Registration begins at 9 a.m. both days, with the camp scheduled to run from 10 a.m. through 3 p.m.
