Milwaukee Bucks Honoring Dekalb Boys Team

leave a comment »

I posted a few updates to my original post about the story of the Dekalb, Ill., boys basketball team showing ultimate sportsmanship in their game against Milwaukee Madison, but thought some recent news warranted a follow-up.

On Friday, most likely as I was writing my original post, ABC’s “World News with Charlie Gibson” named the Dekalb team their “Person of the Week“, and the Milwaukee Madison coach, Aaron Womack, Jr., wrote a letter to the editor in Dekalb’s local paper. So the Dekalb team is definitely getting their due.

My post specifically mentioned the Milwaukee Bucks and it looks like they’re stepping up to the plate as well. According to the Daily Chronicle, Dekalb’s paper, the Bucks have invited the “Barbs” to their Saturday, February 28 game versus the Washington Wizards.

Dekalb will get a chance to meet the team pregame and be honored at halftime. Kudos to the Bucks for stepping up to the plate and making this happen. Yes, they’ll get great press, but it’s for all the right reasons.
