Scott’s All-Star basketball player Marcus Scott V attended the Coach K Camp held June 16-20 at Duke University in Durham, N.C.
At the camp, which was hosted by Duke men’s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, Scott spoke with Krzyzewski, David Robinson and several current and former Duke players.
Krzyzewski told Scott, “You must be a point guard. I can see it in your eye.” Krzyzewski wished him well during the camp.
Duke player Marshall Plumlee took interest in Scott when he saw Scott wearing a blue T-shirt like Duke’s rival North Carolina. The player took Scott on a tour of Duke’s locker room and showed him what the players do before games.
Plumlee also gave Scott some Duke apparel.
Scott led his camp team to a 5-2 record and led his team in assist and points.
“He performed very well,” All-Star founder Marcus Scott IV said. “It’s good to attend these camps and see that your child is performing well against players across the nation. Also, the camp speakers were phenomenal.”
Camp speakers were former Duke players Jason Williams, Jon Scheyer and Nolan Smith.
“These players shared valuable insight on basketball, personal stories, the importance of academics, and even showed the campers (a National Basketball Association) workout,” coach Scott said.
During the workout session, many of the same drills performed were the same drills the Scott’s All-Stars use at practice.
“One reason we chose Duke camp is because coach K (Krzyzewski) believes in many of the same values as our program,” coach Scott said. “Coach K requires his kids to perform community service and expects you to excel in academics. You also do not hear about Duke players getting in trouble. I try to duplicate many of the values that have made coach K program successful into our program.”
