- Addressing the myth of "us against them" is how one man described the Full Court Press Mentoring Day held on Saturday in Spring Garden.

The single-day youth basketball and mentoring clinic aims to help underserved boys and girls both on and off the court through basketball instruction, mentoring roundtables and an innovative life skills curriculum.
