World's Greatest Alumni Game returns!

Tickets are now on sale for the second annual World's Greatest Alumni Game, to be held Aug. 23 at 4 p.m. at the Smith Center in Chapel Hill.

Last year's game included these former Tar Heel greats: Jerry Stackhouse, Vince Carter, Rasheed Wallace, Antawn Jamison, Phil Ford, Sam Perkins, Shammond Williams, Donald Williams, Jeff McInnis, Rick Fox, Brendan Haywood, Brian Reese and more.

This year's event, hosted again by Jerry Stackhouse, promises to have many of the same stars and again supports a great charity. There will be an autograph session beforehand at 2 p.m. at the Smith Center (get there early - last year's lines were very long).

Some of this year's invited participants ...

UNC: Phil Ford, Antawn Jamison, Brendan Haywood, Jerry Stackhouse, Rasheed Wallace, Kenny Smith, Sam Perkins, Walter Davis, Eric Montross, Rick Fox, Donald Williams, J. R. Reid, Derrick Phelps

ACC: Grant Hill, Corey Maggette, Chris Wilcox, Ben Wallace, Jaun Dixon, Dahntay Jones, Steve Blake, Rodney Rogers, Rusty Larue, Darrell Armstrong, Carlos Boozer

* Vince Carter has been added to the Olympic Qualifying team this summer and will thus be unable to participate.

Proceeds from the game, which is put on by the non-profit organization Carolina Pros, Inc., will go to the North Carolina chapter of the American Diabetes Association.

Tickets can be purchased via Ticketmaster online (see below link) or they can be purchased in person at the UNC ticket office.
