WESTON, Wis (WSAU) There were far fewer teams taking part in this year's three-on-three basketball tournament -- the replacement for the annual Gus Macker in the Wausau area.
The Macker used to attract upwards of 400 teams. This year’s indoor three-on-three, part of the Badger State Summer Games, had 34 teams participating. The games were played at the Greenheck Fieldhouse in Weston.
Most of the athletes say they preferred playing indoors, and said they appreciated that trained officials worked each of the games. Organizers said they were pleased with the turn-out for the first-time-event, and hope for larger numbers next year.
