On Saturday, Duffy’s Hope, a non-profit organization founded by former Harlem Globetrotter Allen “Duffy” Samuels held its 13th Annual Celebrity Basketball Game at the University of Delaware.

Prior to tip-off, fans were able to attend a private celebrity meet and greet with the players and coaches of the game. Some of the celebrities in attendance, included Yazz the Greatest (“EMPIRE”), Diggy Simmons, Sevyn Streeter, Tristan “Mack” Wilds , Jay Ellis (“The Game”), and Trevor Jackson (Disney). After a competitive game, the White team led by Coach Sevyn Streeter took home the win.
