The S.J.G. Greater NC Pro-Am Summer League, known as “The Rucker of the South,” is one of the hottest summer leagues in the country and the action gets started on June 30th. Held on the beautiful campus of my Alma Mater, North Carolina Central University, the league boasts some of the biggest names in professional, college, and high school hoops. Started by my hubby and two of his childhood friends, Donyell Bryant and Chuck Jones, the NC Pro-Am’s mission is to “enrich and strengthen the community by creating an entertainment venue that fosters community mentoring, corporate/business participation and non-profit collaboration.”
Newly crowned NBA champion, Dallas Mavericks center Tyson Chandler assisted with a different type of crowning last night. Chandler was one of seven celebrity judges for the 2011 Miss USA Pageant which resulted in the title going to Miss California, Alyssa Campanella.
