When you watch a pro basketball game, you’re seeing the results of hours of grueling practices, coaching strategies, and physical conditioning. But today and tomorrow when you go to Gulfstream Park for the South Florida leg of the 2007 Hoop It Up 3 on 3 National Basketball Tour, you’ll be seeing a whole lot of skills that have been honed on back-yard courts and in-office Nerf tournaments.

Now, we’re not saying the players don’t have talent, because we surely wouldn’t want to go one-on-one with them. We’re just saying it’ll be different from what you’ll see at the AAA (well, maybe not last season). The tournament is today and tomorrow from 9:00 to 5:00 and will feature teams made up of guys and gals ages 8 to 30 and up. Today at noon you can check out the high-flying slam-dunk contest; if you don’t like to watch, you can try your hand at the three-point shootout or the free-throw contest. Visit, or call 1-888-997-PLAY.
Fri., Aug. 24, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sat., Aug. 25, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
