NCAA and The Tyler Ugolyn Foundation
The Boll Family YMCA Gymnasium


The NCAA, the Tyler Ugolyn Foundation, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and the national YMCA of the United States have teamed to add a number of improvements to an existing YMCA gymnasium basketball court during the Final Four.  On Sunday April 5th at 11:00 A.M., the Tyler Ugolyn Foundation will dedicate a "TYLER'S COURT" in Detroit at the Bolly Family YMCA Gymnasium.  The Tyler Ugolyn Foundation was founded in memory of Tyler Ugolyn, an outstanding student-athlete at Columbia University, mentor and friend who shared a lifelong love of Basketball with the world prior to his tragic passing on September 11, 2001.  The Foundation is committed to providing support to youth basketball, with an emphasis on court refurishment, skills clinics and financial support for character-building educational programs aimed at children in urban settings.  The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame will conduct a youth basketball clinic in conjunction with Court Dedication Ceremony.
