BOONE, N.C. – Appalachian State guard Ronshad Shabazz has been invited to the prestigious CP3 Elite Guard Camp in Winston-Salem, N.C. from Aug. 1 through Aug. 4.
Shabazz is just one of 20 guards in the nation to receive an invitation to the camp. The camp, which is hosted by current Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul, will show players what it takes to play at the highest level and how to prepare for the hurdles in both college and the NBA. Past participants of the camp have included Stephen Curry, C.J. McCollum and Kemba Walker.
“I am extremely excited to attend the CP3 Elite Guard Camp,” said Shabazz. “I’m looking forward to learning from Chris Paul and the great staff that will push us to compete at the highest level. This will be great preparation for the upcoming season and beyond.”
The Raleigh, N.C. native earned his second consecutive All-Sun Belt honor in the 2017-18 season, after playing and starting in all 33 games. He averaged a team-best 18.5 points and dished out a team-high 100 assists. Shabazz made 206 field goals during the season, which is tied for the seventh most in program history. In addition, he became just the fifth player in program history to score 600 or more points in a single season, totaling 609.
During the 2017-18 campaign, Shabazz reached double figures in the scoring column in 30 of the Mountaineers’ 33 games. He poured in at least 20 points in 14 contests and eclipsed the 30-point plateau three times, including a season-high of 32 points against Iowa State on Nov. 16 and at Arkansas State on Feb. 22.
In his first three seasons at Appalachian, Shabazz has left his mark in the record books. He currently has 1,481 points, which sits 11th on the program’s all-time scoring list. Shabazz also sits in seventh place in career three-pointers made with 190.
