The Bears and Packers continued their rivalry on Sunday, but the teams moved to a different venue in order to raise money for charity.

In a basketball game at Notre Dame High School in Niles, a few hundred fans saw the Bears do something on the court that they could not accomplish on the football field, which is beat the Packers.

David Terrell, who had a team-high 18 points, led the Chicago unit to an 83-66 victory over the Green Bay squad. The Bears receiver averaged 20 points and 12 rebounds as an all-district basketball player at Huguenot High in Richmond, VA.

Marty Booker added 15 points and Brian Urlacher and R.W. McQuarters each contributed 10 points apiece.

Other Bears who participated in the game included Jerry Azumah, Henry Burris, Phillip Daniels, Bobbie Howard, Daimon Shelton and Dez White. They faced a Packers squad led by Gilbert Brown and LeRoy Butler.

Chicago jumped out to a 27-16 lead after the first quarter. The home team increased its lead to 47-34 by the half, which included several trick shots.

At one point McQuarters, who played two seasons as a reserve point guard at Oklahoma State, dribbled through his legs, then purposely tumbled over on his shoulders in a semi-cartwheel before feeding Daniels for an easy hoop.

The event benefited Athletes for Kids and The LeRoy Butler Foundation. Most of the Bears and Packers players signed autographs and posed for photos after the game.
