Torrey Smith hosting celebrity basketball event at Comcast Center This SaturdayPosted on March 23, 2014 by Phil Gentile
This upcoming Saturday Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith and Washington Redskins Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan will be taking their talents to... SOUTH BEACH.
Actually, to Comcast Center in College Park for the Fourth Annual Celebrity All-Star Basketball Game. Your crew from The Ball Hogs and Purple Reign will be in attendance bringing you all the sights and sounds of the festivities.
The game will be held Saturday March 29th at 5:00 with doors opening at 4:00. Tickets are available here for $15 and at the door for $20.
Torrey Smith and his Baltimore Ravens teammates will be taking on Ryan Kerrigan and his Redskins teammates with all proceeds going to the Torrey Smith Foundation and Kerrigan's Blitz for the Better Foundation.
Can Smith and Kerrigan ball? I don't know about their overall hoop game but I know they both got some hops. If I had to select a starting five for the Ravens with zero basketball strategy involved, I'm going with:
Eugene Monroe at the 5 (intimidation my friend), Terrell Suggs at the 4 (a versatile four), Dennis Pitta at the 3 (he seems like he'd be able to do a little bit of everything), Torrey Smith at the 2 (our flashy, competitive version of the Mamba) and Justin Tucker at the 1 (pretend you're Steve Blake and set your boys up).
