Buchtel is set to host a 3-on-3 boys basketball tournament today [Saturday] and Sunday in the three gymnasiums within the Community Learning Center that includes the high school and Perkins Middle School.

Griffins coach Stephen White said there are 47 teams scheduled to compete in the “The Basketball Bout.” Teams, which range from sixth graders to seniors in high school, will play from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Admission for one day is $5 for adults and $3 for students, and an $8 weekend pass is available for both days.

White said teams “from Akron and all over Ohio are going to be playing in a 3-on-3 tournament with four boys to a team.” The event serves as a fundraiser for Buchtel’s boys basketball team.
