Chambers, Washington Pledge Donations For Hoops Madness Attendance
If another Fabolous appearance and the chance to see energetic Pat Chambers in action one more time before the season starts wasn’t enough reason to attend Hoops Madness at Rec Hall tomorrow night at 8 p.m., a new twist has been added that will tie the event in with THON and WBCA Pink Zone.
Pat Chambers and Lady Lions head coach Coquese Washington will pledge donations to THON and WBCA Pink Zone, respectively, for each person that attends Hoops Madness, which will usher in of the 2011-2012 season. With the capacity of Rec Hall sitting at just under 7,000, at 6,846, the benefit of attending will be equal enjoyment and supporting two incredible causes in the fight against cancer.
Penn State Basketball has yet to confirm the exact amount of each donation, but with 460 people pledging attendance on the group’s Facebook event and thousands more expected, the donation could be a sizable amount. Certainly more will come just for the opportunity to take a half court shot for 10,000 dollars and play “Finish The Play,” which will consist of a highlight being shown on the Rec Hall scoreboard and a fan getting to answer the completion of the play for free laundry or free spring-semester used books. Oh, and don’t forget about Fabolous.
It’s just another classy move from the basketball program, who already run events such as the WBCA Pink Zone game or Washington’s annual golf tournament has already raised money for countless programs. If you needed any more reason to attend Hoops Madness, remember, you’re also doing a small part in helping kick cancer’s butt.

Blazer testified that he was contacted by a Penn State assistant in 2009 who was the father of one of Blazer’s NFL clients. The assistant asked Blazer to pay a player $10,000 so that he would not enter the NFL Draft. Blazer complied, handing a $10,000 check to the father of that player, but the player ended up in the 2009 NFL Draft and was selected No. 11 overall.
