ChallengeBall is back, pitting local hoopsters who think they still “got game,” aka as the Past Prime Time Players, versus the young upstarts who make up the Providence Hall All-Stars. This exciting exhibition basketball game features former LA Laker Mike Penberthy and former Gaucho star Josh Merrill. Game time is Saturday, November 10, 7:00 pm, at Murchison Gym on the Westmont campus.
Mike Penberthy fought back from a major injury to earn on a spot on the LA Lakers, where he received a NBA championship ring during the Shaquille O’Neal years. Mike will lead the roster of Past Prime Time Players team. Josh Merrill, former Gaucho and Breaker star, will lead the Providence Hall All-Stars. Additional former UCSB and Westmont players highlight each team’s roster, along with a few daring Providence Hall faculty members.
ChallengeBall is a fun, family-friendly event. In addition to great exhibition basketball, Penberthy and Merrill will share their personal testimonies from center court at halftime. The Westmont hip hop team, N’Step, will perform and fun contests for spectators will be held throughout the evening.
Admission is $5. Tickets may be purchased at the door. Proceeds benefit the athletics program at Providence Hall, providing Christian college-preparatory education for grades 7-12 in Santa Barbara.
