2009, March 27: Jalen to Judge College Slam Dunk Championship
March 27, 2009
The only potential change is McAlarney, if Notre Dame makes the NIT final — played that same night in New York, he will be replaced.
While a local player has participated the past two years — U-M dunker Brent Petway in Atlanta and MSU shooter Drew Neitzel in San Antonio — there are three local participants this time around, one in each event, in Kangas, Kent, and Chan.
Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.com and general admission tickets start at $10 ($5 for children and students). While the doors open at 6 and the event starts at 7:30, it will not air on ESPN until 9 p.m. on Thursday, after the NIT final.
