Former Winthrop men’s basketball standout Pierre Wooten is hosting a free basketball camp May 31 at the Rock Hill YMCA on Oakland Avenue.

Wooten’s camp is open to boys and girls, ages 7 to 17, but is limited to the first 100 campers. Registration is recommended. Email for registration information.

Winthrop fans will remember Wooten as a member of four Big South Conference championship teams from 1999 to 2003. He played professionally in Europe for 10 years and is a member of Winthrop’s athletic hall of fame.
