Excitement Building for Portland Women’s 3x3 Basketball Tournament

The following post comes from Shaley Howard, Director and Organizer of HRC’s 3x3 Women’s Basketball Tournament:

Excitement is building for HRC’s fourth annual Women’s 3x3 Basketball Tournament in Portland, Ore., on Saturday, July 28! 

This unique event is the largest 3x3 “women’s only” basketball tournaments in the state. Last year there were 26 teams of women, and this year we’re hoping to surpass that and top 32. The tournament is also all-inclusive. Women of all ages and skill levels participate, from 18 to 60+.

To add to the excitement this year, Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown will be in attendance, as well as Sherri Murrell, the Head Coach for Women’s Basketball at PSU and the only openly lesbian coach in the NCAA. Secretary Brown will be awarding our first-ever “Spirit Award” to the team with the most creative name, uniform and overall enthusiasm. Coach Murrell will emcee parts of the tournament along with broadcaster and motivational speaker Ann Schatz.

Nike once again has graciously come on board as our presenting sponsor along with dozens of other local businesses and supporters. And if that isn’t enough, Portland hottest DJ will also be spinning all day long. It’s a day of fun in the sun that many look forward to all year, and a great way to support HRC!
