Greensboro, NC – The 2009 Carolina Barnstorming Tour, presented by Nike and McDonald’s, will be making a stop at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex’s Special Events Center Greensboro on Friday, April 10th at 7:30 pm. The game will give fans one last chance to see their favorite college players in action before they graduate.

2008 National Player of the Year, Tyler Hansbrough, and members of the senior classes from UNC and Duke will be playing a charity basketball game against an all-star team of area high school seniors. Other notable names playing in the game include UNC’s Danny Green and Bobby Frasor, as well as Duke’s Greg Paulus.

An Autograph Signing with the players will take place from 6:30 to 7:00pm prior to the game. Festivities also will include a 3-point Shootout and a Dunk Contest.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, March 13 at 11:00 am and can be purchased at the Greensboro Coliseum box office, online at www.ticketmaster.com, by calling toll-free at 800-745-3000 or by visiting area Ticketmaster outlets including Lowes Food stores.

Tickets for the game are only $10 in advance and $12.50 the day of the game. A limited number of VIP tickets are also available for $25. The VIP tickets include a private reception for the players following the game, complimentary refreshments and reserved seating near the court.

This marks the 31st year for the Barnstorming Tour, which has traveled with the likes of Sidney Lowe, Len Bias and Michael Jordan. With UNC’s all-time leading scorer Tyler Hansbrough leading the way, this year’s tour promises to be one of the most exciting in recent memory. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Ronald McDonald House.

    Freddy Johnson will be coaching the opposing team if any Dudley fans want to come out to the Special Events Center…

    any idea who the high school allstars will be? No one we’ve talked to have heard anything about it

  • James said,

    I just wanted everyone that is going to the tour tonight know that if you have VIP passes you will NOT be allowed to get autographs from the players during the reception. I attended the game in Boone last night and was disappointed to find out this fact. You may be able to get a picture with one or two of the players, that is if they aren’t herded off too fast by the people handling the show.

    The game was fun to watch but I and everyone else counted on getting an autograph during the reception part of the evening.

    So be ready and don’t be disappointed if you don’t get the “VIP” experience you think you’re going to get.
