Josh Davis Throwing Down for A Good Cause


Come out tonight and support Josh Davis and a Good Cause. Tonight Josh will be participating in the first annual Triangle All-Stars Slam Dunk Challenge and all of the money that is raised will go to support the North Carolina Special Olympics. This event is put on by the Apex Police Department. For the past ten years the Police Department has competed against the Apex High Basketball team in a charity basketball game. This year they decided to try something new that would incorporate players from all over the triangle in the hope of raising even more money for charity. These are the players that Josh told me would be in the Slam Dunk Challenge: Josh Davis (Athens), Garrius Adams (Middle Creek), Earnest Ross (Panther Creek), Melvin Tabb (Enloe) and others. There will also be a three-point contest and a shooting skills event that will include police officers, teachers, and students.

The event will be held at Apex High School and festivities will begin at 7pm. Tickets are $5 for students and $6 for adults. If you live around the area, it would be great if you would deck out in RED and come support Josh and the NC Special Olympics.

    WPH, if you are attending the event tonight, I am begging you to get some footage of Josh! There aren't many vids of Josh floating around. I'm sure that seeing him in action may show some folks that Sid can identify some 'sleepers' and that Josh's scholarship is deserved. If I wasn't obligated to work, I would be there in person. Good luck to Josh and to the Town of Apex's Charity. And, as always...Go Pack!

    Any updates from the Triangle Slam Dunk Challenge?

    Sounds like good fun for a good cause.

    Was there a decent attendance? How did Josh do? Hopefully some of the Wolfpack was there to cheer him on.

    Thanks guys! It's 12am and I'm just getting back from editing the Josh Davis video (I'm in the process of uploading it...it's quite a task)

    The event was good like usual. The Apex Police Dept. puts it on and it's always good fun. (I played in it years ago when I played at Apex
    ) It used to be a game where the Cops played the Jocks and the Cops picked up a college player or two. (Thornton one year and Grundy another). This year it was just a 3 point competition , a skills competition and a dunk contest.

    The turnout was good and the fans got rowdy at times. I saw a few Wolfpack faithful up there and showing Josh some love. (Probably around 15 or so)

    Josh did well. He was sporting a NC State Basketball dry fit T-shirt and got the crowd hyped up a few times w/ some nice slams. We'll have the video up shortly.

    Josh placed 2nd. First place was taken by Earnest Ross from Panther Creek who is headed to Auburn.
