Hot Hoops 3-on-3 Streetball Tournament

Expect over 10,000 spectators to crowd the streets of Cary this weekend for North Carolina's oldest and largest 3-on-3 streetball tournament. For 14 years, Hot Hoops has attracted up to 300 teams from across the state, with kids as young as 11, teenagers, adults and the occasional Duke player coming together for a weekend of intense basketball, fierce competition and spirited camaraderie. Hot Hoops teams are organized into subdivisions based on age, height and previous playing experience, while players ages 8 to 12 who want to develop their skills through instruction and play, can participate in the Kidz Hoops competition. One of the most popular and recognizable events in the Triangle, the event works to benefit youth basketball programs and is dedicated to competitive basketball with an overall clean, fun and family atmosphere. In keeping with this good-natured attitude, Hot Hoops is the only major 3-on-3 basketball tourney in the country, where all games are refereed solely by high school and college students. When they are not shooting hoops of their own, players (and spectators) can watch games in the many other divisions, stroll along the streets of Cary and browse the various vending offerings set up for the event. Hot Hoops will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. with the semifinals and finals held on Sunday, 1-5 p.m. Across from Cary Towne Center, corner of Walnut Street and Maynard Road. Call 870-0315, 829-4843, or visit for more information. --Andrea Fjeld
