More than three years after the conclusion of his North Carolina basketball career, Brice Johnson will compete against Duke once again.
Johnson will host day one of the third annual Teen Cancer America Hoop-a-Thon on Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Smith Center practice facility. The former All-American forward will compete against former All-American Blue Devil guard Nolan Smith, who will host day two of the event on Sunday at 11 a.m. at Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Fans can register online for $25 to shoot hoops for "Team Brice" or "Team Nolan." Funds raised will help support TCA programs in development at the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Duke Cancer Institute. Donations to either team can be made online, too.
Money can be donated to either team at https://www.tcahoopathon.com/
Smith, Duke’s director of basketball operations and a 2010 national champion, became a TCA ambassador in 2016 and has hosted Hoop-a-Thons at Duke for the past two years.
This is Johnson’s first year as a TCA ambassador, sparking the idea for the first-ever rival Hoop-a-Thon.
