John Carroll junior forward Lionel Owona has started a project to collect used basketball shoes that will be sent to Cameroon to benefit underprivileged young basketball players.
Owona is asking anybody who has used basketball shoes that can still be worn to please donate them to help grow the sport in the African country.
Any donations can be left with John Carroll coach Tony Martin at the school in Bel Air.
The shoes will be collected until Aug. 10 and then sent to a youth basketball program in Cameroon called Kossengwe.
