Jacob Busch shoots a free-throw as part of a drill following a queue of several other players.
Struggling to hold basketballs playfully tossed at him by other camp participants, Josh Maier places the balls on a rack after the group finishes a series of drills.
After falling out of his chair during a team scrimmage, Logan Shaw rights himself as teammates look on.
