MAKATI--Collin Sexton is already looking forward to take part in this year's Jr. NBA National Training Camp this coming weekend.

"I can't wait!" the six-foot-two Cleveland guard said on Wednesday during a media availability session at Raffles Hotel here.

Sexton, along with WNBA legend Ticha Penicheiro, will grace this year's training camp and will have a special role in the two-day event.

Both Sexton and Penicheiro will help in teaching the participants, the best players from the regional selection camps, basketball drills in the first day on Saturday at Don Bosco Technical Institute here.

Then on Sunday, both guests will coach as well in the alumni all-star game and the boys-versus-girls exhibition game at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall.

They will also take part in selecting the five boys and the five girls who will become part of the Jr. NBA and Jr. WNBA Philippines All-Stars respectively.

"It'll be good just to interact with the kids, me being there personally and talking and being normal to them," added Sexton, the eighth overall pick of last year's NBA Draft.
