IT! It's the
21st Annual Asian 3on3 Basketball Championships sponsored by
MANHATTAN BRIDGE ORTHODONTICS and WWW.ASIANHOOPS.COM. Mark it
on your calendar as you won't want to miss this summertime tradition.
25-26 and August 1st".
begins on Thursday, June 25 and end on July 15th or until divisions are filled.
Each year over 200+ teams hoop it up. Be a part of Asian basketball tradition.
2015 - THE BEGINNING OF THE NEXT 20.
The first 20 was nice but our hopes are the NEXT 20 will be even
better. Asian basketball is definitely at heights not seen in
many years as evident by the number of youth basketball programs
in the NYC area. Long standing organizations, such as the NYC
Sabres/NYC Falcons, Lunar NYC (formerly USAB), NY Rockits AIA,
continue to do their thing with others joining the mix led by
the rebirth of the NY Titans, RL Cruisers/Golden Horizon, NY
Flightz, AAYC, and C.A.S.E., just to name a few. Add to that
the amazing number of passionate ballers over the age of 30 that
still continue hoop it up. I look forward to seeing you on the
courts for the 21st 3on3.
This monster of a tournament was born in 1995 at
the size of 75 teams. Through the years it has grown to as much
as 300 teams. This year, over 200+ teams are expected to hoop
it up again as we embark on the "NEXT 20".
This summer event is one of the most highly anticipated events
of the year. For many of you, this could be the 21st consecutive
year hooping it up!!! For others, this could be your first. Just
remember to drop buckets, have fun and make some friends!!!
