Before the game started, senior captain Nate Merrill presented a check for $250 to the Milton team, to go to senior Jeff Cota who is currently battling cancer. Then, AAU Pro-City coach Jim Darragh presented the team with $300 for the same cause. Later in the game, the 50/50 raffle went toward Cota‚s treatment, the winner donating back his win.
