NEW ORLEANS — D.J. Augustin — native New Orleanian, consensus All-American, first-team Academic All-American and first-round selection of the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats — was the guest speaker Monday on the opening day of the Xavier University of Louisiana Basketball Camp for boys and girls ages 6-16.

"I've been to camp here. I've been where they are," Augustin said. "I just want to tell them about my experiences and help them reach their goals."

Seventy-two campers attended the first day of the four-day camp. "I'm ecstatic about the turnout," said Xavier men's basketball coach Dannton Jackson.
