$7,000 was raised yesterday evening for Cancer research in Pennington, New Jersey for the first ever “Mary Kline Classic”. The event was organized by Alex Kline who runs and serves as a ZAGSBLOG contributor.  Alex’s mother passed away after a long fight with Cancer and he has since put together this “All-Star” game to honor his late mother. The money that was raised will be donated to the American Cancer Association and National Brain Tumor Society.

They even had many highly rated high school basketballers from across the country, including (among others): Jabril Trawick, a 6-5 Georgetown signee, Isaiah Williams a Marshall commit, Khem Birch and John Johnson are both Pittsburgh commits and Birch is a McDonalds All-American, Tyler Harris (brother of Tobias Harris) is an NC State commit, Devin Coleman a Clemson commit, along with future Cardinal Angel Nunez.

Nunez impressed on the court, finishing with 11 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. He made it to the finals of the dunk contest with a between-the-legs dunk off the bounce from the opposite side of the rim, but he did end up losing to Jabril Trawick in the finals.

Nunez’s athleticism and length really have me feeling more optimistic about this future Cardinal and it is good to hear he held his own in a game with such talented players.
