The summertime tradition of 3-on-3 hoop hysteria is soon to overtake the city of Everett, as the 2nd Annual Homeboy's 3-on-3 Tournament comes to town June 8th at the brand new Everett Station.
Gonzaga's Tyler Amaya and his Mount Vernon Bulldogs took home bragging rights last spring from the first installment. Amaya, along with Troy Devries (Portland St.), Chris Thompson, and Stanley Johnson, knocked off King's High School of Seattle 20-19 in the championship contest, completing a memorable event that left everyone itching for the sequel.
36 teams rocked it during the first edition, with talented squads like Mt. Vernon, Mountlake Terrace, Stanwood, Everett, Cascade, King's, and Squalicum representing with their top talent.
Along with a 3-point shootout, a bangin' slam dunk contest, and the innovative "Sultan of Swat" competition (which saw more than one 6'6 cat get dunked on), the Homeboy's 3-on-3 cemented itself as one of Western Washington's premiere playground hoop events.
On June 8th, the Homeboy's 3-on-3 moves to the parking lots of the Everett Station, Snohomish County's new multi-million dollar transit complex. The new digs will more than facilitate the 100+ teams that expect to attend, including 3A state champions Rainier Beach (Lod and Rod), Garfield (Roy and Kemp), Ballard (the Butlers), and many other all-star teams consisting of players from different schools.
Don't want to play those guys, don't worry! There will be all sorts of divisions for male and female ballers ages 12-18. Also, a men's open division has been added so that all the YMCA and playground junkies out there can get a hoop fix. Don't wait to sign up, spots are filling fast.
For more information, contact Jeff Huber at 425.754.0332, or Bobby Thompson at 206.255.6918. Also, feel free to email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you on the courts!
