18

From a Portland Trail Blazers press release. ----------------------------------- The Portland Trail Blazers will hold an intra-squad scrimmage at Garfield High School – the alma mater of Trail Blazers all-star guard Brandon Roy – in Seattle, Wash. on Thursday, October 14, the team announced today. Doors open at 6 p.m. for the 7 p.m. tip-off. Tickets will be $5 each and go on sale Monday morning, exclusively in-person at the Garfield High School activities center. All proceeds from the game will be donated to the Garfield School Foundation. Together, Roy and the Trail Blazers will match the ticket proceeds with a $10,000 donation to the foundation. Roy attended Garfield from 1998 – 2002. He averaged 22.3 points and 10.4 rebounds for the Bulldogs as a senior, and was a two-time KingCo Conference Most Valuable Player (2001, 2002). "My teammates and I want to thank the Garfield community for inviting us to Seattle," Roy said. "Garfield High School holds a very special place in my heart. It’s an honor for me and my family to be able to give back to a school that played such a big part in my basketball journey." ----------------------------------- This news come on the same day that class of 2011 Garfield senior Tony Wroten Jr., one of the country's most electric high school point guards, announced that he would follow in Roy's footsteps by verbally committing to the University of Washington this afternoon. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
