Past, present hoops stars to meet July 18



Hoops stars from past and present will merge at Richmond Academy on Saturday, July 18.

Former Richmond Academy and Auburn standout Gerald White has formed the inaugural Augusta Basketball Alumni Review that will feature past local stars at Richmond Academy. Cost is $2.00.

The action will begin when Glenn Hills alumni takes on Butler at 3 p.m.; Josey will battle Laney at 4:30 p.m.; Richmond Academy will take on Westside at 6 p.m.; and Augusta State University will take on Paine College at 7:30 p.m.

At halftime of each game, 10 fans, at $1 apiece, will have one opportunity to win $10,000 by making a third-quarter court shot. Proceeds will benefit the tutorial program of Augusta Sports In Action, Inc.

Among the players expected to play include Milwaukee Bucks forward Michael Curry (Glenn Hills), Augusta State assistant coach Buck Harris (Augusta State), the College of Charleston's Jeff Bolton (Butler), Paine sports information director Shaun Parks (Paine College), former Paine star Leroy Grant (Paine), Connecticut guard Ricky Moore (Westside), Philadelphia Eagles' tight end Jimmie Johnson (Josey), Tennessee's Deon Grant (Josey), Bernard Wright (Laney) and former Florida State guard Chuck Graham (ARC).

"This will be a great way for fans to come out and see guys from the past play and to support kids," White said.

If there are players who want to play for their schools and are not currently on a roster, they need to contact White at 792-1811.
