NCAA National Champion Coach and Hall of Famer Jim Calhoun is hosting his seventh charity all-star basketball game -- the Mohegan Sun/Jim Calhoun Charity All-Star Game -- as part of the Mohegan Sun/Jim Calhoun Celebrity Classic weekend August 8-11, 2014. Proceeds from the game and the entire Mohegan Sun/Jim Calhoun Celebrity Classic will benefit the Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center at UConn Health. This charity all-star basketball game, which has been sanctioned to allow NBA players to participate, will be played at 7:30PM at the Mohegan Sun Arena on August 8th.
These are some of the great Connecticut players who have played regularly in this game in past years: Ray Allen, Emeka Okafor, Ben Gordon, Rip Hamilton, Caron Butler, Kevin Ollie, Donyell Marshall, Khalid El-Amin, Doron Sheffer, Ricky Moore, Rudy Gay, Travis Knight, Hilton Armstrong, Taliek Brown, Kevin Freeman, Charlie Villanueva and many more.
"I am excited to be able to once again bring so many of my former players back together for what should be a special reunion for them and for the fans of Connecticut. I am also pleased that proceeds from the game will go to fight America’s number #1 killer - heart disease," said Coach Jim Calhoun. Since 1999, the Mohegan Sun/Jim Calhoun Celebrity Classic has raised more than $6 million for cardiology research at the Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center at UConn Health.
