excruciating and inspiring.

The pain was once again eased
last night as a number of folks
gathered at the Blacksburg Country Club
for a charity auction to benefit the

The Denver Nuggets have invited
former Virginia Tech forward Coleman
Collins to be a part of their summer
league squad.

Collins was overlooked in last week's
N- B- A draft, despite turning heads at
the pre- draft camps.

Collins was erratic his senior

season, averaging just 8 points and 5
rebounds a game.

His teammate Jamon Gordon also
went undrafted, but he too will get a
shot at playing in the league.

The former Tech guard has been
added to the Dallas Mavericks summer
league roster.

And his backcourt mate - Zabian
Dowdell is now with the Seattle
Supersonics where he will play
alongside Kevin Durant.

Dowdell averaged 17 points a game
for the Hokies last season.
