Despite Sanders’ performance, his team wound up losing 14-8 to Leaders Believers Achievers Foundation — a local non-profit that uses sports to help kids grow into leaders.
It’s not the first time Sanders’ athletic prowess was on display. After winning the New Hampshire primary in 2016, Sanders was spotted celebrating the win by draining some shots on a basketball court.
Most Democratic polls consider Joe Biden to be the favorite to receive the nomination, though Sanders and Elizabeth Warren aren’t far behind. Sanders will look to make up some ground on Biden at the next Democratic debate, which will take place in September.
