Battle On The Blacktop This Weekend In Buffalo

The annual Battle On The Blacktop 3-on-3 Street Basketball Tournament will be this Saturday and Sunday in Buffalo.

Champions will be crowned in youth divisions from 3rd through 12th grades and in adult men's and women's divisions.

Mike Quast, Executive Director of the Johnson County Family YMCA, who is putting on the tournament, tells us how the YMCA got involved, and a little more about the tournament itself.

Sheridan's 3-on-3 tournament was this past weekend, and Quast said a number of teams move from tournament to tournament competing throughout the summer.

Teams play for pride, bragging rights and a t-shirt or sweatshirt.

The deadline to sign up for the basketball tournament has been moved from last Friday to this Tuesday at 5pm. Registration fees are $145 per team.

For those interested in watching the tournament, games will be played between the courthouse parking lot and the Clear Creek Elementary School this weekend.

For more information, contact the Johnson County Family YMCA at 684-9558.
