Hundreds of players converged on Emerald Downs last Saturday for the Marsh Classic 3-on-3 basketball tournament.
About 240 teams competed in more than 25 divisions – from second-graders to adult categories – during the two-day event.
The tournament, one of the largest of its kind in the state, was open to boys and girls, men and women, of all ages and skill levels.
The tournament is named after Marsh, a former USC and NBA player, who is a community leader. Marsh has coached and mentored thousands of youth through basketball and in his work as a high school select and college-level basketball coach. He is the director of Jammin’ Hoop Camps and has served as president of Mentoring Works Washington.
Marsh is also a champion for Parkinson’s awareness, as he is living with the disease, and is involved in the efforts of the Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation.
The classic was created to raise awareness and funds for statewide mentoring of youth and for Parkinson’s research.
