George Washington men's basketball will have a number of its student-athletes competing in the 2015 Nike Pro City Jabbo Kenner League, formerly known as the Kenner League, beginning this Friday, July 10th.

Games at McDonough Arena begin at 8 pm on Friday, with GW student-athletes Paul Jorgensen and Matt Cimino competing for Clyde's in the tip-off game, followed by Kevin Larsen and Anthony Swan playing for DCX in the nightcap. The regular season runs through Friday, July 31st, with Kenner playoffs taking place on August 1-2 and the Championship Game at 3:30 pm on August 8.

Tentative team breakdowns for GW players are below, and a tentative schedule can be found here, though all rosters, dates and times are subject to change. The lone GW student-athlete not scheduled to participate is senior swingman Patricio Garino, who is currently in Argentina trying out for the national team. Alumnus Isaiah Armwood is also scheduled to compete in the league.

Named after one of the founders and first director of the Metropolitan Police Boys' and Girls' Club of Washington, D.C., the Jabbo Kenner League is the only NCAA sanctioned summer league in Washington, D.C. For two decades, the Kenner League has attracted high school, college and professional players from throughout the area to come together in the offseason and play in a team-oriented atmosphere that is both competitive and safe. It has also provided fans, friends and family the chance to see great hoops action in air-conditioned comfort.

Games will be held every weekend through the end of the month. Parking for Kenner League games will be in Georgetown's Southwest Garage off the Canal Road entrance to the university.
