TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - On many other nights, they might drop by and play a game of street basketball.
But, on Friday night local basketball players took it to another level.
Teams got together to play in a three versus three Basketball Heat Jamboree at Tupelo's Gum Tree Park on Front Street.
Organizers say it gives the players, both youth and adults, an opportunity to compete in a more organized setting.
Players had to already have their teams put together before the tournament.
The jamboree is scheduled to last for three days with each day being a new tournament, and then the last day is the day of champions.
Any games that may be postponed due to rain will be scheduled for the next weekend.
