The competitive game to 21 will be held on Saturday, March 6, at 8 p.m. ET and will be streamed exclusively on B/R app and in partnership with Twitter. The game will also kick off the NBA All-Star weekend with some of the game’s highlights being aired on TNT ahead of Sunday’s game.
B/R Open Run will donate to the HBCUs of the winning team’s desire. Louisville’s Jack Harlow decided to represent Simmons College of Kentucky and Kentucky State, Lil Baby selected Morehouse College and Spelman College, while Quavo rounded out the AUC by representing Clark Atlanta University and Spellman College.
2 Chainz has a personal experience with HBCUs. Before becoming a chart-topping rapper, 2 Chainz played Division I basketball at Alabama State University. As a result, Tity will represent ASU during the game. There will also be donations made to Lincoln University, Fisk University, Bennett College, Paine College, and Bishop State Community College.
