NEW HAVEN, IN. - With the London Olympics "borrowing" some of the best women's basketball players in the US, the WNBA is on a three-week hiatus in the middle of its season. So what is a star basketball player to do in the meantime? If you happen to be Minnesota Lynx star Candice Wiggins - the answer is come to Allen County.
For the last two days Wiggins has been hosting a basketball camp for girls at New Haven High School.
"I was thinking about my journey," Wiggins says. "If I can impact these girls' journey just a little bit, its a good thing. You don't just all of a sudden become a WNBA player."
In addition to skills work and imparting some knowledge on the aspiring players, Wiggins also took part in an All-Star game Sunday night at the school. Wiggins' team featured several women's college players, including Notre Dame star Skylar Diggins. Their competition - a men's team made up of former area high school stars, including North Side grad and European pro Vernard Hollins.
