LONDON AND JOHANNESBURG (Aug. 23, 2011) - Former Hawk Dikembe Mutombo and fellow NBA Legends Patrick Ewing and Alonzo Mourning will headline Basketball without Borders (BWB) Africa 2011. Returning to South Africa for the eighth time Sept. 1-4, BWB is the NBA’s and FIBA’s global basketball development and community outreach program, which uses sports to influence positive social change.

The trip will reunite Georgetown University alumni Ewing, Mourning, and Mutombo for their first trip to Africa together since the three were part of a contingent of NBA players, officials, coaches, and legends that traveled to Kenya, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire), and South Africa for basketball youth clinics in 1994.
