Global Mixed Gender Basketball League Debuts At Howard University This Weekend

March Madness is coming to the DMV in a distinctive way. It’s a new basketball league that has men and women competing together on the hard-court. It’s called the Global Mixed Gender Basketball League. DC has its own team and Howard University will host some of its games.

Attending this event brings light to a much larger issue – the launch of a Community Diabetes Health Initiative via the Washington Fusion team. The GMGBL Diabetes Health Initiative are using their platform to call attention to the disproportionate number of undetected cases of diabetes in communities of color. They’re offering FREE screenings March 23 and participants will receive FREE tickets to Washington Fusion vs Chicago Vikings Game at Burr Gym at Howard University on Saturday, March 24.

CEO and Founder of the Global Mixed Gender Basketball League James Scott stopped by the WHUR studios to talk basketball and more.
