The teams will be coached by Kenny Smith (UNC), Vinny Del Negro (NC State) and Christian Laettner (Duke), and will compete in a Skills Challenge, Shooting Stars Competition, and 3-Point Contest. The two teams with the highest combined score in the first three events will move on to the 3-on-3 game. The coaches and players will then join VIP ticket holders for a post-game gala, with a silent auction of autographed gear. Ticket sales and gala proceeds will benefit the Big Three charities

The event is a continuation of the three-pointer/texting challenge that BCBSNC hosted during the men’s basketball season – a contest between UNC, NC State and Duke. Each men’s basketball program selected their favorite charity (UNC Coach Roy Williams chose UNC Lineberger) and that charity received a donation from BCBSNC for how many three-pointers the team made during the season and how often the team’s fans sent texts to BCBSNC. From the basketball challenge, we raised $17,500 for cancer research at UNC Lineberger.
