Even though the current Brother Rice student body was between four and eight years of age at the time of the original game, their enthusiasm and support for the REPLAY team was evident this afternoon as Gatorade sponsored a pep rally at the school. The rally featured members of the REPLAY team, coaches and special guest and new member of the Chicago Bulls, Carlos Boozer. Boozer was welcomed by the crowd with a standing ovation and Crusader Crazy chant of “Boozer…Boozer…Boozer”.
During the rally, Gatorade sponsored a game of H-O-R-S-E between Boozer and REPLAY player Vince Greene ’00. If Greene were to defeat Boozer in the game, Gatorade would donate $5,000 to the Brother Rice Athletic Department. With the help of fellow teammate Sidney Holmes ’00 with a slam dunk, they were able to defeat Boozer and earn the donation.
The REPLAY game will be held Friday night at Saint Xavier University’s Shannon Center at 7 PM. The game can be viewed live online on the official REPLAY Web site, www.replaytheseries.com and www.csnchicago.com. Additionally, a tape-delay broadcast of the game will air at 3 p.m. Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday on ComcastSportsNet Chicago.
