The Carroll Family Foundation (CFF) x Raptors 905
Raptor fans have a lot to be excited about this year. The team is growing in a positive direction, the All-Star game came to town, and they have an exciting NBA Development Team, Raptors 905, to grow their prospects and provide fans another option to watch some exciting Raptors basketball.
The Carroll Family Foundation purchased a group of tickets and invited the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Toronto (BGCGT) to the Raptors 905 final home game on April 4th. The kids got to enjoy the game and also be part of the game operations by participating in the “Fan High Five” Tunnel.

JYD Returns!

It’s been a long time coming but #TeamCarroll & #WeTheNorth fans received great news on April 7th that #JYD2Point0 was returning to the lineup after missing 41 games! DeMarre returned to the hardwood and provided his usual boost of energy and #HardWork as stated by Coach Casey after the game:

He gave us energy […] He gave it to us defensively, he made a big shot […]”

– Coach Casey

DeMarre ended up the night by chipping in 5 points, 1 rebound, 4 steals, and 1 block shot in 13 minutes of play.

DeMarre returned again to the court on April 10th against the Knicks on the road in the Big Apple. Again, the Junkyard Dog provided his trademark defensive presence and energy for Toronto. At the end of the night, DeMarre played 17 minutes and finished with 5 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block, and 1 steal.
With the regular season over, we now countdown to the NBA playoffs! Catch DeMarre and the Raptors this Saturday for Game #1 against the Indiana Pacers! Tip-off is at 12:30 PM EST at the Air Canada Centre!
