FORT WAYNE (www.incnow.tv) - Over a dozen college basketball coaches checked out the talents of the more than 130 players attending the ninth annual MVP Classic College Exposure Camp Sunday at North Side High School.

The camp, run by North Side boys assistant coach Mitch Sturm, is free to the players, who range in age from high school to early college, each of them in search of a place to play college ball.

Sturm says in the first eight years of the camp 137 players have landed college rides through conections they made with coaches at the camp.

Coaches who attend often pass on information on players to other coaches who were not present.
