MOUNT HOLLY – Maalik Waynes couldn’t believe what he saw.

The Camden High School boys basketball team rolled up to Rancocas Valley before JV play Thursday afternoon, and there was already a line of fans lining up to get into the building.

That was the norm for the Panthers all last season, but first-year head coach never experienced it on this level before.

The former Villanova standout and NBA player was surprised to see the stands almost full by the second quarter of the JV game.

The behemoth that is the Camden basketball hit him.

“It’s definitely butterflies, good butterflies, to be nervous,” Waynes said. “I want to do well and I want these guys to do well and I know a lot depends on these guys and this city this season. I just want to be able to perform and carry this great legacy with great passion, tradition and great pride.”
