Staff Pick: Hoop It Up

Midway through a national tour, the enormous three-on-three basketball tournament makes a stop this weekend at Nationwide Arena. Hundreds of teams from across Ohio will compete for a place in the national championship, and the action will include a dunk contest and a three-point shootout.

If you've never watched, what makes this tourney fun is that teams are grouped by age, height and ability - kind of like a round of golf among players boasting a similar handicap. Tons of hoops will be set up throughout the arena parking lot, so there'll always be plenty to watch.

Saturday-Sunday, July 17-18

Nationwide Arena, Arena District
