In order to accommodate the large crowd expected to attend D.C.'s Goodman League's summer basketball matchup with Los Angeles's Drew League, organizers have changed the game's venue. The event will now be held at Coolidge High, which is at 6315 5th St. NW, instead of Georgetown University's McDonough Arena. McDonough holds only 2500 seats, a number that organizers expect attendance will handily exceed. Coolidge's gym seats 5000.
The move is a surefire indication that this game is generating considerable buzz, at least on the local level. Considering that D.C.-native Kevin Durant alone is a name that fills up NBA arenas 82 nights a year, the thought of the local hero getting sweet dishes from Washington Wizards point guard John Wall must have area hoops fans salivating. The full rosters for the game can be found here.
The game will also be streaming live on TheBasketballChannel.net, for those who are not lucky enough to receive tickets.
