Published 1 year ago
DGHI took advantage of the power and influence of the Duke Men's basketball team to further its reach and to thanks its Chinese partners at the 2011 Duke-China Friendship Games. More than 100 children and families from Peking University and the surrounding community were treated to a rare look inside the practice of the Duke Men's team. Prior to the practice, DGHI faculty member Gary Bennett spoke to the enthusiastic children about the importance of exercise to prevent obesity. Bennett also led the children in a dribbling game, while the Duke players cheered them on from the sidelines. Later in the practice, the group was greeted by Duke standout Nolan Smith and Celtics Head Coach Doc Rivers, whose son Austin joins the team this year.
