Ghana Center Amida Brimah featured in the Jim Calhoun Charity Game over the weekend with NBA Hall of Famer Ray Allen and long tenured Forward Rudy Gay.

The matchup which is also known as the University of Connecticut All Star Game featured former players from the multiple time National Basketball Champions.

This year’s event was the second time in the game’s history which featured both male and female players highlighting the sharp rise of the latter in recent years.

The exhibition game is played every two years in honour of former long serving coach Jim Calhoun who works with University of St. Joseph’s.

The game ended 112-106 for Brimah’s White Team over Ray Allen’s Black Team; Brimah played alongside San Antonio Spurs teammate Gay.

Allen will be inducted to the NBA Hall of Fame on September 9 after a long NBA career which produced two titles and 10 All Star appearances.

Proceeds from the game will be handed to the Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center in Connecticut. This was Brimah’s first appearance in the exhibition game.
