In July 2018, former Missouri men’s basketball player Kareem Rush had a dream become a reality, hosting a basketball game in Kansas City between former players at Missouri and Kansas.
The event was just the beginning for Rush and his colleagues, who formed the Alumni Basketball League. While the league is still being formed progress, DMV basketball fans will be for an early treat as Maryland’s “College Park Boys” will face Georgetown’s “Dawgtalk” on Aug. 6.
Maryland basketball alum Travis Garrison (‘06) jumped on an offer to become the Maryland team’s general manager and owner. Garrison came up with the idea to bring back the Maryland-Georgetown rivalry, and the league tabbed former Georgetown star guard Chris Wright to lead the Hoya squad.
