WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — Purdue junior Carsen Edwards has been invited to a pair of prestigious camps during the next two weeks, attending the CP3 Camp in North Carolina and the Nike Basketball Academy in California.

The CP3 Camp, organized and administered by Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul, will run Aug. 1 to 4, at Wake Forest University. Just 20 collegiate guards and 30 high schoolers are invited to an intense three-day training camp with Paul overseeing the sessions. Players are tutored on everything from skill development to film breakdown to life skills. Current and former NBA coaches and elite high school coaches round out the staff. Past participants have included Kemba Walker, Steph Curry, Brad Beal and Trae Young.

The following week, Edwards joins 19 other college basketball stars as well as the nation's best high school players for the Nike Basketball Academy in Thousand Oaks, California. A year ago, NBA stars LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, Amare Stoudamire and Kobe Bryant were part of the staff. The Academy focuses on three areas (the Mind, the Body and the Game) and players improve by learning from the game's greatest players and playing against the best competition possible.

Edwards, a 6-foot, 1-inch junior from Atascocita, Texas, earned the nod after an outstanding sophomore season, helping the Boilermakers to a 30-7 overall record and a spot in the Sweet 16 for the second consecutive season.

Edwards' 1,046 career points are the 12th most for an active player nationally through his sophomore season. His 686 points this year were the ninth most nationally for a freshman or sophomore and he was one of six underclassmen this year to have 650 points, 100 rebounds and 100 assists.

He is the only player in Purdue history to have 650 points, 100 rebounds and 100 assists in the same season.

Edwards was at his best late in the season, averaging 21.1 points per game in 13 games played after February 1. He tallied 40 points in a win over Illinois in late February and 30 against Texas Tech in the Sweet 16, while averaging 20.5 points per game in six postseason games. He scored in double-figures in 20 straight games to end the season, surpassing 20 points in nine games.

Edwards and the Boilermakers open the regular season Nov. 6, when Fairfield visits Mackey Arena. Season tickets are available by calling the Purdue Athletics Ticket Office at 800.49SPORT or online at PurdueSports.com.
