I thought these pictures — from United Way Executive Director June Cummings — were too good not to share here on the blog. Check ‘em out from the United Way Day of Basketball that was held Jan. 25 at Kinston HS:
The student section champions: the Kinston Khaos. I know I have a similar picture up here, but I liked June’s better.
The Munn Maniacs get ready to take the court for the student section championship game.
The Hawk Krazees have their smiles going, although they lost to the Khaos in the semifinals. And yes, that’s FOB (Friend of the Blog) Sue Novicki leaning against the wall in the pink jacket!
Here I am standing beside Kinston’s junior superstar, Reggie Bullock. And yes, I’m sporting the Psycho T jersey and hat that my good “friends” Heelatious and Heelsfan forced me to wear because of the bet I lost. I’m a little wider than Hansbrough, though…
Kinston’s Josh Benoit, who won the 3-point shootout in spectacular fashion, hitting 9 of 10 3-pointers in a 45-second span.
Kinston’s Joshea Singleton, who won the dunk contest. And here’s something that needs to be said about Singleton, too: he’s not only a great athlete — he’s a very good student, too. He’s an honor roll student who is one of the most well-spoken kids around.
Thanks again to all of you who supported the game — I can’t wait for the eighth edition in January 2010!
