ACC Barnstormers will play local hoops stars at Conley April 11
Ever wondered how some local high school basketball players would stack up against stars from the Atlantic Coast Conference? The ACC Barnstorming Tour will answer that question with a stop at Greenville's D.H Conley High School on April 11. A group of senior basketball players from North Carolina's Big Four -- Duke, North Carolina, N.C. State and Wake Forest -- will take on some local hoops players to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House and for Conley, the host high school. The ACC All Stars will be coached by former UNC star point guard and Rocky Mount native Phil Ford. Organizers could not verify which players would take part in the local event, but past ACC Barnstorming tours have included such standout players as Michael Jordan, Len Bias, Dereck Whittenburg and Tyler Zeller. The event also will include a 3-point contest and a dunk contest. Players will be available after the game for a limited autograph session with general admission ticket holders. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the game starts at 7:30 p.m. General admission tickets are $12 each in advance and $15 at the door.
