3 on 3 basketball is coming to the Tri-Cities. Former Olympian Andrew Reyes is developing a tournament in which he hopes will bring 200 ballers to Columbia Point Marina, July 16th-17th. The tournament costs a hundred dollars per team if you join before, and proceeds will go to the Andrew Reyes foundation, which provides scholarships to local athletes.
Reyes said, "living out here seems to be a very good place for family to grow a family. I want to give back to the community. The community has been nice to me and I want to give back."
Phil Pinard from the Richland Parks and Recreation Department added, "it's exciting to think that if we can host it here and it's successful... Then it can come back each year and bring those people in the city and showcase our parks."
Reyes went on to say, "come out there, rattle some hoops, rattle some balls, come by showcase their talent ... And see what we can do with that."
