Behind The Scoreboard
More NBA, plus tennis and soccer
It seems harder and harder to wipe away the last vestiges of the just completed NBA season and make way for some of the more current and prevailing events. If you recall, this column usually leaps right into the trials at Wimbledon but this year there has been the distraction of the World Cup (of soccer). The tournament has completely dominated the sports world and has not garnered this type of devotion since Pele joined North American Soccer years ago. One could write a book trying to report all the news generated from around the world since the competition started.
Three-on-three July 19
A three-on-three basketball tournament will be held Saturday, July 19, at the Eddie Lee Smith Multi-Purpose Building.
The fee is $80 with up to four players per team.
