3 On 3 For All The Marbles

What do you get when you mix the following ingredients: 3-on-3 basketball tournament, outdoor courts, the hot summer sun, and a $600 cash prize with no entry fee? A whole lotta shit talking, hard fouls and a few scuffles. But all in all, everything went pretty smoothly.

Last weekend, the Show Out Boyz (a classic car club) held a 3-on-3 basketball tournament at Swanston Park here in Sacramento, CA. So far I've been unable to find any internet evidence of the Boyz or their tournament except for this jpeg of a flyer. But when I pulled up to the park, it was going down! There was a total of about 39 teams with games occurring on three half courts. The tourney dragged on for about 7 or 8 hours and as I was losing daylight, the main event was finally underway.

In a game that started 12-3 (first to 15 wins), there was a near impossible comeback with a final score of 15-12. The man with the crazy haircut and his team representing "The Heights" split the $600. Shout out to the Show Out Boyz for putting on the tournament and their success in keeping everything in order. Looking forward to the next one.
