A record 250 participants are expected to lace up their sneakers in Hillsboro on Monday for the Love of the Game camp organized by the Nelson Basketball Academy.

Former MayPort-CG and 2003 North Dakota Class B player of the year Craig Nelson said Monday that concerns over the spread of the coronavirus pushed back the basketball camp from its original start date in mid- to late June.

“People were waiting to sign up because of the uncertainty and whether (the camp) was going to happen” due to COVID-19, Nelson said.

The delay appears to have worked out for the basketball skills camp.

Positive word of mouth from last year’s event and the cancellation other sports camps in the region this summer caused a spike in registrations for the basketball camp.
