BTN takes part in 'Hoop 4 Water' Charity Basketball Event

BTN was on hand for Saturday’s “Hoop 4 Water” Charity Basketball Event in Flint, MI.

Former Michigan State basketball standout Morris Peterson, a native of Flint, Mich., partnered with rapper Snoop Dogg to host the celebrity basketball game.

Proceeds from the event went to the Morris Peterson Jr. Foundation, which will provide water crisis-related donations to the community of Flint.

There were a handful of stars on hand, including former MSU star Mateen Cleaves, MSU head basketball coach Tom Izzo, and Sway Calloway, co-host of the nationally syndicated The Wake Up Show.

BTN’s Dave Revsine and Stephen Bardo were on hand to call the game, while BTN Social Media Corespondent Taylor Rooks reported from the sidelines.

Check out some of the top moments from the event.
