OKLAHOMA CITY – In continuing the great partnership Mid-America Christian University has established with the Earlywine YMCA, MACU men's basketball head coach Josh Gamblin and former MACU men's basketball student-athlete Trey Slate are teaming up to host a free, co-ed basketball camp this Saturday (May 20) at the Earlywine Park YMCA in Oklahoma City.

The camp is open to boys and girls who are signed up for YMCA Summer Basketball.

The sessions are: 5-7 years old from 9-10 am, 8-10 years old from 10 am-11 am and 11-14 years old from 11 am-12 pm.

Gamblin has made quite an impact for the Evangels in his two seasons at the helm, leading MACU to its first ever NAIA National Championship in 2016 while amassing an overall record of 44-25.

A former trainer of Los Angeles Clippers' power forward Blake Griffin, Gamblin also has experience as the Clippers' Video Coordinator in the 2011-12 season under then-head coach Vinny Del Negro.

Slate competed at the University of Oklahoma before arriving at MACU and has helped train notorious athletes such as Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley and Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield. 

This season, Slate nailed 45 percent (27-of-60) of his three-point attempts.
