The streets of Mount Pleasant will become a hotbed of basketball again this August for the second annual Avenue of the Saints Championship. Sponsored by Gus Macker basketball the tournament will feature three-on-three competition for all ages.
Eric Rawson with the Henry County Convention and Visitors Bureau says they have teams from all over Iowa and many teams from across the Midwest. He says they hope to double the number of teams this year as many teams travel around looking for tournaments.
Rawson says the tournament has almost a "cult" following, as teams work their schedules around the tournaments throughout the summer as they get ready for winter basketball.
Rawson says interested teams have plenty of time to register. You can go to http://www.macker.com%20 and click on the state of Iowa icon. The tournament is August 11th and 12th.
