LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The sun may have been blazing, but that didn't stop hundreds of folks from packing the parking lot across from WDRB for this year's annual Hoop It Up! three-on-three basketball event.
More than 90 teams are competing this year. Participants come from
all around the country to take part in the tournament, now in its ninth
There was plenty of food, booths, inflatables and other
entertainment for the kids. There was also a free breakfast on Saturday, and
a free lunch will be provided on Sunday, compliments of Arby's (while supplies last).
Participants say the event is a great way to bring the Louisville community together with a sport they love.
Hoop It Up! will continue at 9 a.m. Sunday in front of WDRB's studios at
624 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd. -- and one lucky person will have a chance to win a new Cadillac Escalade from the Sam Swope Auto Group.
