The Greens Farms Academy boys basketball hosts he Brunswick School tomorrow with the proceeds from the paid crowd going towards fighting AIDS and Tuberculosis.
GFA is hosting the fundraiser to support Partners in Health, a Boston-based organization that fights AIDS and TB around the world.
The Dragons defeated Brunswick 55-52 in December and the Bruins hope to avenge this loss in the rematch.
Like the first game, this also promises to be a nail biter because the two teams are mirror images of each other. Both teams feature outstanding scorers, senior captain Dan Chase (Weston) leads the Dragon and Devin Mehra guides Brunswick. Other players to watch are 6' 9'' sophomore Sean Obi from GFA and 6' 9'' Billy Murphy from Brunswick.
