“Today was yet another first for RISEabove. We are thrilled to have stepped into the arena of women’s basketball. We are very pleased with the great turnout in both the women’s division and the men’s division. My favorite part of the day was looking in the stands and seeing all the grandparents moms, dads, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, and friends who came out to watch their loved ones play.”

 

  • Matt Brown, RISEabove Chairman of the Board and Basketball League Director
