The Mercer women's basketball team hosted 41 schools at their annual team camp.  One of the squads on the hardwood was Mary Persons.

Head coach Kurt Greene brought his Lady Bulldogs to Mercer as part of their summer schedule.

"We went to a team camp the other day at Stratford, played three games over there," explained Greene.  "We're going to play five games here and then we'll go to Georgia College towards the end of the summer."

Sandy Creek booted Mary Persons out in the semifinals last year.  Now, the Lady Bulldogs are looking for new talent for this season.

"We may have somebody who maybe last year, didn't get a lot of playing time. You can bring them here and you can play some kids and try to put them in a different role to see how they're going to produce," said Greene.

Camps force teams that normally would not play each other to go head-to-head.  Coach Greene says they have seen some good competition.

"When you face those [teams], you find out the character of your basketball team," explained Greene.  "You find out who will be your go-to players. You'll find out who you can go to at the end of a game when it's tight."

Team camp ended Saturday.  Mercer will host their Elite Camp starting Sunday, June 8.
