Rosters announced for UW Alumni Game
Coach Lorenzo Romar divided former players who’ll participate in the UW Alumni Game on June 23 at Alaska Airlines Arena.
He picked an easy method to fill out the nine-man teams. Players who starred at Washington before 2009 are paired against those who played from 2009-12.
Here’s a look at the rosters.
Tony Wroten Jr.
Those aren’t the official names of the teams, but just a way of being able to identify the two squads for now. There’s a chance Pondexter, who will participate in an NBA-sponsored event in Singapore may not be able to play for the Dawgs team. Not sure at this time if there will be a replacement.
Before the alumni game, former Huskies such as Christian Welp, Eldridge Recasner, Mark Sanford, Donald Watts, Bryant Boston, Dion Brown and Chester Dorsey will compete in a Legends Game.
At halftime of the alumni game, fans will be treated to a three-point shootout competition and a slam dunk contest. The dunk show will likely feature Ross, who won the NBA slam dunk title this year and Robinson, a three-time NBA slam dunk winner. Celebrity judges are Jamal Crawford and Shawn Kemp.
The three-point competition will likely include Recasner, Simmons and Sanford.
The alumni game will air on KJR-950 AM. Doors open at 1 p.m.
Tickets are $15 with children under 12 admitted free.
