Spend a night out next week with Chicago’s OTHER basket ball league, the Sky. The Swish Dreams Celebrity Allstar Game takes place Tuesday June 2nd, at 7:00 p.m. at the UIC Pavilion. It’s the first-ever basketball battle of the sexes. The WNBA Chicago Sky will take on an all-male team. No mercy will be spared on the fellas-this game will be played complete with WNBA official rules, including WNBA referees, three-point line, shot clock, and an official WNBA basketball. So, go get ‘em girls!
The E -league roster includes Chicago natives Michael Clark Duncan, Larenz Tate, grammy nominated artists Brian Mcknight and Nelly, actors Donald Faison, Frankie Muniz and comedian Bill Bellamy. To purchase tickets go to http://www.chicagosky.net and enter the promotional code “swish.”
