DRYDEN — The Dryden varsity boys’ basketball team will be playing at Little Caesar’s Arena on Sunday, December 11.

Adding to the excitement, fans will get to watch Lebron James and his Los Angeles Lakers teammates square off versus the Detroit Pistons prior to the high school game

“It is great for the entire community,” Dryden Coach John Delcampo said. “We are very fortunate to get the date and also get the discounted tickets,” he noted.

Dryden will play against Millington that evening. Their clash will follow the Detroit Pistons versus Los Angeles Lakers battle set for 6 p.m.

Not surprisingly, Dryden players reacted enthusiastically to this news.

“Playing at Little Caesar is an incredible opportunity,” Dryden sophomore guard Sonny Coscione commented. “It will be an experience the team will never forget,” he noted.

At halftime of the varsity boys’ game, Dryden’s varsity girls’ team will scrimmage the junior varsity boys’ team.

“We have the court for two hours and wanted to share this with as many players as possible,” DelCampo said.

There are a limited number of discounted tickets available for the game. Upper bowl tickets (normally $89) are $50. Lower bowl tickets (normally $188) are $165. The tickets allow fans to attend both games.

“We fully expect to sell out and are stressing to fans that people buy their tickets early,” DelCampo said.
