HOUSTON - This past weekend was a milestone for Slam Jam as it celebrated its 10th anniversary.
Forty-two boys teams competed in the one-day event, which included squads that traveled from as far as Laredo, Austin and Beaumont to test their hoops skills. The teams consisted of groups of fourth to eighth grade divisions.
The highly competitive tournament was held at the Louetta Sports Complex, which houses six courts in the Cypress area.
"This event is designed to prepare teams for the upcoming spring/summer season," VYPE Vice President of Sales and Events Derek Dusek said. "It was so awesome to see these teams compete at a high level in February. I also want to give a shoutout to the staff at Louetta Automotive Sports Complex; they were fantastic!"
The VYPE Hardwood Basketball Spring and Summer Series enters its 10th season this Spring.
