Former Big East rivals Anthony Glover of St. John’s University and former Rice High School and University of Cincinnati star Kenny Satterfield are among the list of talented New York City-based basketball players to compete in the inaugural 12-team, $100,000, winner-take-all Summer Remix Tournament, according to spokespeople for the AND1 basketball shoe brand.

AND1 and event partner IMG Worldwide, the global sports, fashion and media company, are staging the four-day event, featuring the largest prize in Streetball history, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Liacouras Center on the campus of Temple University during Labor Day Weekend (August 29 – September 1). 
Glover and Satterfield are the latest additions for “Bingo’s All-Stars” team, a legendary NYC playground and former AAU traveling squad to join the previously announced streetball teams led by NBA legend Shawn Kemp, who will form a team of players from the Seattle area, Indiana Pacers star and AND1 athlete Lance Stephenson, who will coach a team of players from Indiana.

Glover, a 6-4 forward from The Bronx, played for two State championship teams at Rice HS in Harlem before his collegiate days at St. John’s from 1999-2003 when he averaged 11.2 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. In two seasons at University of Cincinnati from 1999-2001, Satterfield played 68 games, averaging 11.9 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. Satterfield also played in 75 NBA games, 58 with the Denver Nuggets in 2001-02 and 17 with the Philadelphia 76ers in 2003.
