DK 3 On 3 Invitational

Randy Snow Free Throw Challenge

DK 3 On 3 Invitational

   Every year I host, with the help and support of many, the DK 3 on 3 Invitational Wheelchair Basketball Invitational. Turning POINT  is an outdoor adventure organization which hosts the Extravaganza each year (24 years) as well as my event. The Extravaganza is a day to enjoy your choices of over 24 activities.

   This year was unprecedented with the support received from ABC medical. They stepped up into the Presenting Sponsor role making it possible for me to create a $ purse for the top three teams. Other sponsors were Randy Snow Push Forward Foundation, Spinergy Wheels, Sportaid and the Yates family. Lunch was provided by Ron and Tricia LaBar.

   The 3 on 3 is into approximately its 10th year and for the past few years has been named in honor and memory of my great friend Randy Snow, one of the greatest athletes of all time in wheelchair sports. Randy left this world but his mark will always be with us and in our hearts.

There were 30 players registered for the competition and Doug Garner, the head coach for UTA Wheelchair Basketball Team was the tournament director (thx Doug).  My team was composed of Rose Hollermann, 18year old USA Team player,  Brian Wofford, an Irag military single amputee and super sub Francis Key. We had two other women play in the tournament: Darlene Hunter (USA Team) and Morgan Wood.

   My team called the Lakers in round robin went 4 and 4 and in cross over we beat the Heat in a close one. Willie Hernandez led that team. Willie is a big teammate with ABC Medical and owner of Per4Max Wheelchairs. We then squared off against Jorge Sanchez's Spurs team who were undefeated. Rose played lights out and we won! Putting us in the finals.

The finals happen at the end of the day at the Extravaganza, and the gym was packed: Spurs vs Lakers. The Lakers shooting a high percentage won it all. My first win in the DK Invitational. The winning team took home $1200, 2nd $750 and 3rd $300.

   The Randy Snow Free Throw Contest took place and newcomer Jimmy Moceri, who traveled from Michigan, came in as a sharp shooter. In the preliminary round, he made 19 of 20 earning him the top seed of the 6 finalists. Tyler Buysse, a junior all star from Dallas shot his way past the other four adults and had a showdown with Jimmy M. Jimmy stroked it to the 1st place prize winning Spinergy SLX wheels valued at $1000, Tyler collected a check for $500 for 2nd. The women's contest went to Rose Hollermann, taking home $150.
