Hey everyone!

It's getting closer and closer to the Juno Awards (Sunday, March 27th) and there have been some cool events throughout the city to get everyone pumped up! As a part of Juno Week, there was an event here at Ryerson called Juno Hoops on Monday, March 21 and it brought Ryerson athletes together with some celebrities for a great basketball game for charity. It was presented by The Globe and Mail, sponsored by clotheyourcity.com and it was a benefit for MusiCounts.

Here are some of the celebrities who participated:

DJ Scratch Bastid - first ever DJ to be nominated for a Juno Award
Will Strickland - former professional player and UMAC president
Ray Robinson - R&B star
Donovan Bailey - Olympic double gold medalist sprinter
J.E Skeets & Tas Melas - Co-hosts of The Basketball Jones Show on The Score
Michael Grange - sports writer for The Globe and Mail
DJ Future the Prince - Drake's official tour DJ
Devo Brown - Media personality

Honorary Coaches:

Tanya Kim - host on eTalk
Archie Alleyne - Drummer


Mark Strong - Toronto Rapters game day host and hype man

Normally, as you may have noticed, I tend to avoid sports. But in this case, I'm glad I checked this out, because I had a pretty good time!
