NBA players to visit Waco

Baylor University has announced the upcoming visit of a traveling all-star troupe of players from the National Basketball Association.

The Celebrity All-Star basketball game will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 1 at the Ferrell Center; tickets, starting at $14, are available from the Baylor Athletics ticket office. Proceeds from the game will be donated to both the Texas Sports Hall of Fame and Coach Carter’s Impact Academy.

With the current NBA season delayed and the possibility of full cancellation discussed in media reports, the Celebrity All-Star basketball game has been held in several cities around the nation. Houston, Dallas, Austin, Shreveport, Washington D.C, and Chicago have all previously hosted the event, which features Kevin Durant and Josh Howard, from last year’s Oklahoma City Thunder and Washington Wizards teams. Jason Terry, who helped lead the Dallas Mavericks to the 2006 NBA Western Conference and the 2011 NBA Finals titles, is among over a dozen other guests expected at the Waco edition of the game.
