NBA All-Star weekend was a success for the Charlotte area. Johnson C. Smith has benefited because of this.
Johnson C. Smith’s Brayboy Gym benefited from a $350,000 gift from the Jordan Brand. The organizers brought in a basketball showcase during last week’s festivities and blessed the Golden Bulls with some new features. New scoreboards, shot clocks and seating for the bench areas were donated to the program. And the Jordan brand is just getting started. Brayboy Gym will also good new courts and locker rooms in the near future.
“It’s a big deal for us,” said JCSU basketball coach Steve Joyner. “It’s an upgrade from what we have, and it makes us a better program.”
