SPOKANE, Wash. - There are changes for the 25th year of Hoopfest. The biggest change is the addition of 63 courts in the north east corner of the Spokane Arena parking lot, right on Washington and Boone.

In year past, there were about forty courts in the INB Performing Arts parking lot on the corner of Washington and Spokane Falls Bld. But this year, construction crews are working on a hotel that takes up that entire space. So Hoopfest organizers decided to move those courts, and add a couple more, up north.

This will be the furthest north the courts have ever been. Matt Santangelo says that he is interested to see what the public thinks. He thinks the Arena parking lot is going to make for great basketball. He said that they will be the flattest courts, and there will be more room.Another new feature this year is the Hoopfest App.

Download the app on your smartphone and you have an interactive map on your phone. You can search for specific courts, plug in the team you are watching and get your schedules, all on the app.

Hoopfest will release the brackets on Wednesday night.
