Men's Basketball Goes to Devereux
February 28, 2012
The men’s basketball team put on a clinic for the Devereux Foundation Kanner Campus last month. Members of the Cheyney Basketball team and coaching staff reviewed basketball skills and talk with children and adolescents with special needs.
This clinic concentrated on attitude, academics and athletics. “We had positive participation and interaction from the CU players and participants. Many Devereux students had a lot of fun and there were so many big similes. They talked about attending CU games and looking forward to future clinics, “commented Cheyney University Head Men’s Basketball Coach Dominique Stephens.
