The event took place at the Ben Avery gym, beginning at 9:30am and going on throughout the day. The tournament was a well run event, with all participants, volunteers and organizers having an incredibly enjoyable experience. The event consisted of both a Men’s and Co-Ed division, a three point contest and a raffle, as well as a complimentary barbeque for everyone involved in the tournament.

There were many raffle prizes to be won at the event, and the winners consisted of:

Carmelo Anthony Jersey: Ryan Hicks

Kevin Durant Jersey: Jon Ross

Kevin Garnett Jersey: Ben Whyte

Kyrie Irving Jersey: Tommy Zapletal

Samsung Tablet: Hamza Munawar

Molson Gift Pack: Kyle Nicol

The winner of the Men’s division was “The Scalabrine Crew”, while “Team Body Balance” took home first place in the Co-Ed division.

Alan Russel, one of the event organizers, had this to say about the event:

” The day went amazing. Everyone involved seem to have an enjoyable experience. We had a thrilling 3 point contest that came down to the final shot. We would like to say thank you to all of the participants as well as our big sponsors, SRO and the SGA, who both made this day possible!”

As a volunteer of this event, I can personally say that this event was a big success. It was well run, enjoyable and an action packed day for all of those involved. After such an enjoyable day, all SPAD student are looking forward to the various SPAD events throughout the rest of the year by the third year event management students.
