Davidson Buzzkill Raises More Than $47,000

The Davidson Buzzkill 3-on-3 tournament, auction and dinner raised more tthan $47,000 last week to purchase approximately 4,700 pesticide-covered nets to prevent the spread of malaria in Africa.

The initiative was started by former Davidson player Bryant Barr and involves the men's and women's basketball teams.

“The way the Davidson community embraces this effort is extraordinary,” Barr said in a release. “With over 350 people involved in the BUZZKILL weekend, we will be
able to make a difference in the lives of nearly 20,000 African people.”

Former Wildcats All-American Stephen Curry participated in the event along with other former players. The tournament featured 75 players.
