Where: McLendon-McDougald Gym on the campus of NCCU in Durham
When: July 2-Aug. 9
Why: Watch former Pack players and current NBA stars in action...for free!
If there was ever an instance where you'd find yourself saying "thank you" to a UNC alum, now is the time. Former Tarheel and NBA All-Star, Jerry Stackhouse, started up a league in Durham last year in which professional, college and high school basketball stars come together under one roof to compete against each other in a league that is second to none in the triangle area. The NC-Pro Am League is dubbed "The Rucker of the South," and has replaced the Chavis League as the place to go to watch past, present and future NC State (and other ACC) players during the summer.
Established last year to help the Durham community, the Pro-Am league is beginning to be recognized as one of THE premiere summer leagues in the nation. This talent rich league will take place every week starting July 2nd and running through August 9th. The games will take place in McLendon-McDougald Gym on the campus of NCCU in Durham, NC. Admission is free, but if you want a good seat you'll probably want to get in the doors early.
We will be covering the league as extensively as possible. According to an agent that represents most of the Pack's former players, there are a good amount of NC State alums planning on playing in the Pro-Am. You can expect to see Josh Powell, Anthony Grundy, Courtney Fells, Jordan Collins and Marcus Melvin. Keep checking back as we will be updating you with schedules and rosters as soon as they are available.
