While Hoopfest couldn’t run its usual massive tournament across the streets of Spokane this year, the organization has gotten creative with online alternatives for folks who just are itching for a basketball fix. Consider this weekend’s Hooptown USA esports tournament, in which players will take to the NBA 2K20 video game and battle it out for court supremacy. It’s free to play in the youth, high school and 19+ divisions, and just $5 to join the Elite Division, where a $2,000 prize is at stake. All the action will be broadcast live on SWX and all major streaming services.
Sat, Sept. 26 from 6-10 pm • Free or $5 to play • Register to play at justaddmonsters.com
