WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Chris Paul is known around the NBA as one of the best, if not the best, point guard in the league. His dedication to his craft extends beyond just his game, he is also very particular about the invitees of his yearly CP3 Elite Guard Camp.
That's what makes the invitation for rising junior Briante Weber even more special. Weber was selected among a group of elite college point guards to spend three days at CP3 Elite Guard Camp from August 9-11 in Winston-Salem, N.C.
"I'm blessed to have an opportunity to be among some of the best players in the country," Weber said. "I'm looking forward to the chance to learn and get better so I can help the team reach our goals for the upcoming season."
The CP3 Elite Guard Camp is an invitation-only camp for the top high school and collegiate point guards from North Carolina and across the country, held in CP3's hometown of Winston-Salem, NC. This will be an opportunity for some of the rising stars in the game of basketball to learn on the court from one of the game's best floor leaders. Fresh off another outstanding NBA season, CP3 is bringing his experience, as well as an elite group of instructors to help a new group of guards.
Weber is coming off a record-setting sophomore season in which he set a new school record with 98 steals. He also led the country for the second straight season in steal percentage, registering a steal on 7.61% of the opponent's possessions when he was on the floor. Those numbers helped him earn the Atlantic 10 Defensive Player of the Year award.
In addition to his defensive prowess, Weber averaged 5.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game for the Rams.
