I was talking to someone today who works in the athletic department and they told me that there is a celebrity basketball game in Halton Arena Homecoming Week. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Feb 8) supposidly. Holler if yall hear more…

I know they were looking at some local radio personalities, a few Panthers, NASCAR drivers, etc. Now, who they actually got, I have absolutely no idea.

I heard people like clay aiken… nelly… since he lives here…

Yeah, the ones I heard weren’t huge A list celebs. And by the way - Aiken? No way. I can’t even imagine him trying to play basketball.

I found this though:

“Battle at the Goldmine”
