Bobby Maze

June 20, 2014

Several former Tennessee basketball and football standouts are returning to Rocky Top to take part in the Bobby Maze Celebrity Basketball Game Saturday, June 28, at the Knoxville Convention Center.

The action tips off at 2 p.m. ET, and in addition to the game itself, the event also features slam dunk and 3-point contests.

Tickets cost $25 for general admission and $50-100 for various VIP packages. Proceeds from the event benefit the Pat Summitt Foundation. To purchase, visit bmazegame.eventbrite.com.

The list of participants scheduled to play/appear include former Tennessee basketball standouts, Wayne Chism, Kenny Hall, Tobias Harris, Scotty Hopson and Chris Lofton; former Lady Vol basketball stars Brittany Jackson and Meighan Simmons; and former Tennessee football players Eric Berry, Albert Haynesworth, Denarius Moore and Chris Scott.

Several of those UT alums currently play professionally in the NFL, NBA and professional leagues overseas.

Other non-UT celebrities expected to participate include Michael Beasley and Greg Oden of the 2014 NBA Eastern Conference Champion Miami Heat, Ty Lawson of the Denver Nuggets, and NFL players NaVorro Bowman of the San Francisco 49ers and Terrance Knighton of the Denver Broncos.

Maze played point guard for the Vols from 2008-10 and was a starter on Tennessee's 2010 Elite Eight team. He developed the idea for the celebrity game, with the inaugural event taking place last summer.
