In an effort to raise money to fund the Abou Traore Memorial Scholarship, SVSU's Men's & Women's Basketball teams (Pros) take on faculty & staff (Joes) in the annual Pros vs. Joes charity basketball game. Abou Traore was an international student who attended SVSU from 2005 to 2007. Sadly, Abou lost his life in a tragic accident before the start of the Fall 2007 semester. Abou was a pre-med major, whose dream was to return home to his country of Senegal as a doctor. He was preparing to be a Resident Assistant for the 2007-2008 academic year. There will be prizes, good times and a fun game to watch for all who attend!
