ALBION – The Albion Boys Basketball Boosters is organizing a 3-on-3 tournament on Saturday open to boys and girls in grades 5 through 12.

Tip-off in the double-elimination tourney begins at 10 a.m. in the high school gym. There will be 10-minute games. Teams can have a maximum of four players on the roster. The cost is $20 per player.

“Since the high school basketball season just concluded, the 3-on-3 tournament is a fun and exciting way to wrap up the season and keep the players in Albion and surrounding schools to keep playing basketball,” said Jeff Radder, one of the organizers and the JV boys basketball coach at Albion. “Plus, with the excitement of the upcoming NCAA Basketball tournament, we decided to host our own version of ‘March Mania.’”

The Boys Basketball Boosters are planning to use the proceeds to pay for Albion players to be in basketball leagues this spring and summer as well as  purchase gear for the teams next season, Radder said.

The registration deadline is Wednesday. Awards will be given to teams in grades 5/6, 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12.
