Teams of former college players from the D.C. and Philadelphia areas will face off next month in a pair of exhibitions designed to promote The-BALL (Basketball Alumni Legends League), a new pro league for those who don’t make the NBA cut.

The first game will be played in D.C. at George Washington University’s Charles E. Smith Center at 4 p.m. on Aug. 4. A second game will be played the next day at Saint Joseph’s University’s Hagan Arena at 8 p.m.

The D.C. squad features Jason Clark, Austin Freeman, Henry Sims and Chris Wright from Georgetown; John Gilchrist and James Gist from Maryland; and Folarin Campbell, Jai Lewis and Will Thomas from George Mason.

Philadelphia’s team will feature Allan Ray, Reggie Redding and Curtis Sumpter from Villanova,; Pat Carroll and Ahmad Nivins from Saint Joseph’s, Ryan Brooks, Dionte Christmas, Dustin Salisbery and Mark Tyndale from Temple; and Zack Rosen from Pennsylvania. Rosters are subject to change.

Phil Hubbard, a former Washington Wizards assistant, will coach the D.C. team. Alvin Williams, director of player development for the Toronto Raptors, will coach the Philadelphia team.

Tickets start at $15 and are available at the league’s website, www.the-ball.com.
