    The World's Greatest Alumni Game capped off a weekend of fun for players and fans alike but was for a greater cause, one to help less fortunate families in the area and raise money for diabetes research.

    "I think [this weekend] went great," said game host and Carolina Pros co-founder Jerry Stackhouse. "All the festivities are good. It's for the fans to mingle with the players and get autographs, but the real reason we do this is for diabetes. That's why we are here to try to raise money for some needy families that are less fortunate than we are.

    "I'm just happy that I can be a face that can help that happen. All these guys are faces that make that happen, not just me because I thought of the idea along with Angela [Lee] and Rick [Fox] and King [Rice]. When I see the turnout and see the love that people have for Carolina, hopefully everybody gets while we are really here."

    After battling to a 28-29 stalemate through the first quarter, the Tar Heel alumni used a 13-7 run at the close of the half to take a 67-59 lead into intermission. The Tar Heel built on the lead through the third quarter and led 103-88 heading into the final stanza. A 16-5 spurt by the ACC All-Stars early in the fourth quarter closed the lead to four points at 108-104, but the Tar Heel Alumni steadily built on that lead for the final margin.

    The fact that it was for a good cause didn't decrease the desire to win.

    "This is for bragging rights," said Sean May who finished with 25 points and 12 rebounds, unofficially. "I don't think we've lost one yet, and I don't see too many more [losses] coming."
