It was the best of black top basketball held over the weekend. It was the 12th annual Hoop Jam 3 on 3 Street Basketball Tournament. Folks from North Dakota and Colorado along with hundreds of teams from across Wyoming took part. Tournament Director Amanda Monterastelli gives us the numbers.
It was geared for kids from 3rd grade on through high school with a few adult teams in action. Marci Holte came over from Gillette to watch her son play with his team, the “Hot Shots.”
The Sheridan “Predators” stood strong on the court. Kara Bateson was yelling encouragement to her son from the sidelines.
Proceeds from the tournament go to help pay for School District 2”s athletic trainers and to Wyoming Rehab.
