  • The old school meets the new school in “Uncle Drew,” a hilarious basketball comedy that also has a heart. Uncle Drew and his team take on the young generation in the Rucker Park Tournament and plan to show them how the game of basketball is really played.
  • After raining most of the day of the outdoor performance, the skies cleared for two MBU students to take their seats on the lawn to see Chris Brown. However, they found they had a harder time focusing on what was happening on the stage than the cameras filming the event.
