Panthers sign letters of intent 

Two St. Mary’s track & field seniors have signed letters of intent to universities. Sprinter and triple jumper Asokah Muhammed will head to Arizona State in the fall, while runner Shameka Savage will attend Sacramento State. Hurdler Halihl Guy is expected to make his decision for next year in the coming weeks. 


Lampley looks to impress at camp 

Sean Lampley, Cal’s all-time leading scorer and the 2001 Pac-10 Player of the Year, takes what he hopes to be the next step toward an NBA career this week at the Nike Desert Classic in Phoenix.  

Lampley, a 6-7, 225-pound forward, is one of 42 NBA hopefuls participating in the weeklong sessions at Wells Fargo Arena. The players are divided into four teams and will perform in front of more than 100 scouts in both individual drills and game competition.  

Not everyone eligible for the June 27 draft will be on the court in Phoenix. Players such as Duke’s Shane Battier and Arizona’s Loren Woods, who are expected to be high first round selections, as well as college undergraduates and high school seniors who have declared for the draft, are not participating.
