    verb or v-ing

    Would anyone help me with the following sentence: "Young people are captivated by American basketball and some even daubing the names of NBA stars on their school sweatsuits." I'd like to ask whether 'daub' or 'daubing' is correct here and why.
    Thanks for any help.
    PS: Please let me know if there are any mistakes (grammar, word choices, etc.) in my post.

    Either omit 'and' and use a comma in its place, or retain 'and' and change 'daubing' to 'daub'.
