*Tune-in and catch your favorite stars from daytime, primetime and feature films as they take on the Ball Up All-Stars, the country’s top streetball players, in Ball Up’s 1st Annual Celebrity Game.

The star-studded event (pre-taped in May) helped raise funds and awareness for the National Parkinson foundation (NPF) and will air this Sunday, June 12 on Fox Sports Net (5 & 9 pm).

See streetball moves like never before as comedian/actor Cedric “The Entertainer” steps on the court to coach a team of Hollywood’s funniest and finest leading men against the number one streetball team in the country, the Ball Up All-Stars.

Fellow actor Anthony Anderson (“Scream 4,” “Law & Order”) along with comedians Bill Bellamy (“Last Comic Standing”) and Nick Swardson (“Just Go With It,” “Grandma’s Boy”) deliver non-stop comedy on and off the court  – and far away from the rim.

Former NBA player Cedric Caballos proves he still has game along with celebrities from the popular Entertainment league (E League), including Joshua Morrow (“Young & The Restless”), James Lesure (“Mr. Sunshine”), Robbie Jones (“Hellcats,” “One Tree Hill”), Donald Faison (“Robot Chicken,” “Scrubs”), Brandon Routh (“Dylan Dog: Dead of Night”), Greg Finley (“Secret Life of the American Teenager”), Clark Gregg (“Thor”), and R&B recording artist Tank.

The Ball Up All-Stars team roster include streetball icons: The Professor, Air Up There, AO, Bone Collector, Special FX, Sik Wit It, Springs, Pat The Roc, Mr. Afrika and Violator; and former NBA player, Tracy Murray as coach.

Ball Up’s 1st Annual Celebrity Game will also feature a halftime show by hip-hop sensation Cali Swag District, performing their multiplatinum hit single “Teach Me How to Dougie.” Originally taped on May 1 in Los Angeles, their halftime show is one of the group’s last performance together before Montae “M-Bone” Talbert’s untimely death.  Cali Swag District’s debut album “Kickback” will feature a special tribute to their fallen member and is slated  for release on July 11.
