MJ, Mayor Johnson, Mayor Yvonne Johnson that is; will coach against another Johnson; “The Man” Freddy Johnson, from the Greensboro Day School that is; when the Carolina Barnstorming Tour with the “BIG GUY”, Tyler Hansbrough, comes to town Friday April 10.

It’s been talked about for years, Johnson versus Johnson and Tyler Hansbrough in the House and it will all come to pass Friday night April 10 in the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center and we will have tickets to give away here at the site next week. As Vick “The Brick” Jacobs says, “stay tuned, we’re feeling you”.

The Mayor versus The Man with Hansbrough in the House, that is compelling.

Mayor Yvonne Johnson to Coach Hansbrough and ACC All-Stars

Greensboro, NC – It was announced recently that the 2009 Carolina Barnstorming Tour, featuring the ACC’s all-time leading scorer Tyler Hansbrough and the senior classes from the UNC and Duke basketball teams, will be playing a game at the Greensboro Coliseum Special Event Center on Friday, April 10th. The Final Four bound Tar Heels will team up with none other than their rival Duke Blue Devils, as they face off against a local all-star team coached by Greensboro Day’s Freddy Johnson. Wake Forest alum and Harlem Globetrotter, Antwan Scott, will also suit up for the ACC team.

Mayor Yvonne Johnson will be in attendance as the Honorary Head Coach for the ACC All-Stars. When asked about her involvement in the game, Mayor Johnson said, “This event will give the local community a chance to enjoy an exciting basketball game, while also benefiting a worthy charity.”

This marks the 31st year the Carolina Barnstorming Tour has hit the road to give fans one last chance see their favorite seniors in action. VIP tickets for the game are sold out. General admission tickets are still available for only $10 by visiting the Greensboro Coliseum’s box office, online at ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000. Portions of the proceeds from the game will benefit the Ronald McDonald House.
