OREM, Utah -- Former Utah Valley basketball alumni teed it up at Talons Cove Golf Club last week for the Second Annual UVU Basketball Alumni Golf Outing, organized by head men's basketball coach Dick Hunsaker.
The one-day tournament stands as an opportunity for former Wolverines to reunite with past teammates, coaches, and supporters.
"It's awesome to be able to come back and get together with old teammates to play some golf," said Garrett Mackay, a former Wolverine basketball player and member of the event's wining team. "It's a great event that Coach Hunsaker has put together that supports a great cause."
Mackay, who played basketball at UVU from 2002-03, teamed up with former teammate and current City of Sandy, Utah, board member Mike Christopherson (02-03), B.J. Burt, and Matt Nordhoff to take the tournament title.
Other notables participating in the event included:
Ronnie Price (02-05): UVU Hall of Famer and current Phoenix Suns guard,
Ryan Toolson (03-04, 06-09): UVU's all-time leading scorer, former NCAA Independent Player of the Year,
Jordan Brady (06-08): Former Division I Defensive Player of the Year,
Matt Peterson (04-07): Former player and current color man for UVU men's basketball broadcasts,
Steve Watts: UVU Hall of Famer and former "Voice" of the Wolverines,
among many others.
