San Antonio Spurs and Ghana Center Amida Brimah has stated it felt like deja vu all over again after playing in his first Jim Calhoun Charity Basketball Game.
The game was played over this past weekend at the Mohegan Sun Arena and had several alumni of the University of Connecticut basketball program feature.
Soon to be inducted NBA Hall of Famer Ray Allen and long time Forward Rudy Gay were among the star studded group that played for former Connecticut Coach Jim Calhoun.
In the aftermath of the game, Allen stated in an interview with UCONN Daily Campus, “We have the opportunity to see so many fans…It’s like that song or food you ate growing up that sparks nostalgia”.
On his part, Brimah said, “It’s basically like deja vu all over again”; Brimah graduated last year and was on the 2014 national championship winning team.
The game takes place every two years and Allen’s Black Team lost 106-112 to Brimah and Gay’s White Team.
