Crown Point Shores, Mission Bay, San Diego (May 17 & 18, 2008) – Over 140 teams and hundreds of spectators packed Crown Point Shores this weekend for the Jack in the Box 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament – A Pacific Life Holiday Bowl Production. There were 17 divisions, including brackets for men and women, old and young, tall and short, and good and b… (not so good). In the top division (Elite), the West Coast All Stars defeated Beat City 16-14 in an exciting and hard-fought center court finale.
In other action, Anthony Tapia and Caleb Morris claimed the AT&T 3-Point Shootout adult and junior championships respectively. And while the sun kept folks warm along the shores, Tapia was downright hot and can undeniably claim to have been the weekend’s top sharp-shooter. He also took home the adult winner’s trophy for the Mudd Club Free Throw Challenge. Brandon Wheelihan won the junior division.
The Jack in the Box 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament has served as an annual fund-raiser for the non-profit Pacific Life Holiday Bowl for 21 years. This year it also benefitted Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County.
Special thanks are extended to Lincoln Military Housing, who made it financially possible for all military teams to have their entry fees waived. And to the Los Angeles Sparks for providing two regular season tickets to each and every baller who participated in the event.
Other sponsor partners who made the weekend a success include Pepsi, Aquafina, Dr Pepper, Classic Party Rentals, 100.7 Jack FM, 760 KFMB, NBC 7/39, San Diego Family Magazine, San Diego City Beat, Vavi Sport, San Diego Sol, Picnic People and Pacific Life.
