2014 Tournament Wrap-Up

For our fourth annual tournament, we tried a change in format, adding a “primary” division (under 12) and an “open” division (over 18) that played in exhibition play. Six youth teams participated along with four primary teams and four open teams. Teams played in a round-robin format for seeding, then played a single-elimination tournament (with a wild card round for the youth teams).

2013 Tournament Wrap-up

logo_2013The third annual tournament saw a change in venue to the Garden Grove Recreation Center. Once again, we had eight teams participate, but with the two courts provided by the new venue, we were able to allow each team to play every other team during round-robin play. Teams played round-robin games all day Friday and on Saturday morning, then were seeded #1 through #8 based upon their overall record as we put everyone into the playoff bracket with a chance to win the tournament championship.

2012 Tournament Wrap-up

logo_2012Our second annual tournament was a great success, with eight teams participating. The teams were separated into two four-team pools and played each team in their pool during the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday morning games. The order of finish in pool play sorted teams into two brackets; the top two teams from each pool entered the Championship bracket, with a chance to win the tournament championship trophy, while the bottom two teams from each pool entered the consolation bracket.  Each team got the chance to play two games in their bracket, meaning each team was able to play a total of 5 games.

2011 Tournament Wrap-up

logo_2011Our 2011 tournament was a lot of fun and a great success. The inaugural tournament was strictly a round-robin affair among six teams (allowing each team to play five games in total) with a three-point contest to wrap up the tournament.

Hook-It-Up (Carson), Bingy, and Anaheim 12th were the standout teams as all finished play with 4-1 records.

The winner of the three-point shooting contest was Buda from the Bingy squad. The runner-up in the three-point contest was Frani from Lynwood 2nd.

A great time was had by all and we look forward to next year!
