C.J. Watson arrived in Dakar, the capital of Senegal in west Africa Friday, ready to work with former WNBA star Chamique Holdsclaw on a series of State Department sponsored events before moving on to South Africa and Basketball Without Borders.

Watson and Holdsclaw will hold several co-ed basketball clinics to engage underserved youth in the cities of Dakar and Thies; attend a high school basketball tournament; and mark the 10th anniversary of SEEDs, a Senegalese organization that uses sports to promote education. It's the second big event of the week for Watson. Two days ago, he received his college degree from the University of Tennessee, where he's been known to give back as well.
