3-on-3 hoops tournament won the day

Fresh jerseys, tightly tied sneakers, and baggy shorts matched the determined game faces of more than 160 fourth through tenth grade boys and girls who took to the floor for a day of 3-on-3 hoops—a tournament that has become a championship event supporting The Rory David Deutsch Foundation. Held on October 7, 2005 and hosted by Highland Park High School, the fifth year of this biennial basketball gathering raised $20,000 for The Foundation. This event brought out both the competitive and giving spirit of young players who typify the tournament’s theme, “3-on-3 for What Tomorrow Can Be.”

More than 300 fans cheered teams of boys and girls who were matched in 3-on-3 games against their peers. “It was another great year, and another great group of kids,” said Alan Samsky, who has served as the tournament’s director for the last four years. “It’s all about raising awareness, raising support for The Foundation, and having fun for a good cause.”
