The 6th Annual Jeremy Saxe Memorial Basketball Tournament

Last Saturday, the brothers of the Rho Chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon hosted the 6th Annual Jeremy Saxe Memorial Basketball Tournament in the Kamine Gym. This charity event is held every year to honor the life of Brother Jeremy Saxe, who passed away during his senior year due to an undiagnosed heart condition. The proceeds from the event are donated to the Jeremy Saxe foundation to help build schools in Nepal.

The tournament is held in a 3 vs 3 format, as organized teams had the option to compete in either the competitive or non-competitive bracket. All were welcome to participate, as Lafayette students from all class years came to compete, as well as multiple DKE alumni. Even a team from Easton High School came out to support Jeremy’s cause. All in all it was a fun-filled, productive day at Lafayette, as DKE raised about $8,200 in donations, making this year’s tournament the highest grossing tournament to date.


After dozens of match ups took place on four different courts in the Kamine Gym, a team of four seniors (three of which are DKE brothers) came out on top. Brandon Turner, along with Brothers Rob Howe ’14, Michael Kelley ’14, and Charles Roberts ’14 (pictured below) calling themselves “The Fab Four” took home the trophy in the competitive bracket.

DKE would like to send a heartfelt thank you to everyone who showed up to participate and to those who worked to make this event possible. We would also like to send a special thanks to Brother Chris McConnell ’09 for his help organizing the tournament. And finally we would like to thank all of the DKE alumni who were not able to make it to the event but still chose to donate to Jeremy’s foundation. With everyone’s continued support we hope to have an even larger turnout for next year’s tournament.
