Murray State head men’s basketball coach Steve Prohm announced Wednesday former Racer star Isaiah Canaan will be part of the fun at the final Steve Prohm Basketball Camp at the CFSB Center in Murray, Ky., July 29 through Aug. 1.

“I’m very glad that Isaiah can come back and help with our final camp,” Prohm said of Canaan, who was recently selected by the Houston Rockets in the NBA Draft. “We’re excited to have him back and it will be a great experience for the kids.”

Canaan, who was selected by the Rockets in June as the 34th overall pick, is the first MSU player to be drafted into the NBA since Marcus Brown in 1996. Canaan finished his career as the sixth Murray State player to reach 2,000 points and the 17th in the Ohio Valley Conference.

“It will feel good to be back at Murray State with my extended family,” Canaan said. “I’m looking forward to being there.”

The camp which is open to boys and girls age 7 through those entering seventh grade, is the final Prohm Camp of the summer and promises a great time of basketball.

Steve Prohm Basketball Camp is a great experience for the children as they learn the fundamentals of the game from an experienced staff of instructors. Each camper will have an exciting and rewarding time at the CFSB Center.

Parents may register their children by calling the MSU Basketball office at (270) 809-6804 or by stopping by the Ray Center in person. Walk ups are welcome on the first day of camp (July 29),

Each day of camp begins at 9 a.m. and runs through 4 p.m.  Adult supervision is provided at all times and parents are allowed to begin dropping their children at the CFSB Center at 8 a.m. to accommodate their work schedules. Supervision will be provided until 5 p.m. The last day of camp ends at noon.
Lunch can be purchased for $3 per camper each day. Campers are allowed to bring their lunch if they wish.
Each camper will receive a camp t-shirt, ball, and certificate of completion.
