BOSTON (WHDH) - The newly-renovated gymnasium at the BCYF Vine Street Community Center will named after a local basketball star during a special dedication ceremony this weekend.

BCYF officials have chosen to name the gym after Terrence Clarke, a Dorchester native who grew up playing basketball there.

His initials will be displayed within a heart on center court, officials said.

Clarke, who played basketball at the University of Kentucky, was killed in a car crash in California in April 2021.

He had been expected to be selected in this year’s NBA draft.
