Midnight Sun 3 on 3 tournament set for Saturday

FAIRBANKS, AK-A big weekend ahead for Interior sports events. You got the Midnight Sun Baseball game Friday night and the Midnight Sun Run of Course on Saturday night. But you can also get on the court for some basketball in the Midnight Sun 3 on 3 tournament.

It's hoops all day and all night. You can register up until 9:45 a.m. on Saturday but registering online is the best way to go. You can register online at http://breakthruathletics.com/.  It's 125 dollars for a four person team.

The Midnight Sun 3 on 3 tournament which is sponsored by the Fairbanks Youth Sports and the Wolfpack Tip-Off Cluib has age divisions from third graders all the way up to the 40 and older ballers. There are women's and coed divisions as well.

It all goes down Saturday in front of Sports Authority off the Steese Highway from 11 am to 11 pm. Organizers of the event believe the location is a benefit for everyone coming out to the tournament.

"Not having it downtown any more I think it's something that's new and having it at Sports Authority there's all these other stores there that you can go while you're not playing ball. You can go and check out these other stores we have around, you know Old Navy, Sports Authority," tournament director Kimani Shotwell said. "We got a bunch of vendors there. We'll have a barbeque there out there so we got a good basketball community so it should be some fun, fun games out there. There's going to be a lot of food a lot of basketball going on and it's just real good for the community I think."
