A parking lot near the state capitol in Des Moines will be crowded with basketball players on Saturday for the annual Hoopin’ at the Dome" basketball tournament. Sponsored by the Iowa Games the tournament features three-on-three half court competition.
Iowa Games executive director Jim Hallihan is expecting an increase in the number of teams as they’ve sent out information to a lot of teams. He says they have 120 teams signed up and last year they barely made 100.
Hallihan says competition will run through the afternoon and they hope for good weather so they can keep things outside.
The tournament offers division for kids through adults. Hallihan says the biggest division is usually the open division.
