The first day of the Hermiston 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament took place on a sunny warm day. The
temperature made it up to 95 degrees in mid afternoon. There were several new hoops that shrunk
the space between courts to about four feet from the old style ten feet between hoops.
Here are some photos from the action that took place on Saturday July 19, 2014.

meant that they had to step up to challenge the men on switches.
