WAUSAU (WAOW)-  Thousands of basketball players from around the state are set to hoop it up at the Gus Macker this weekend.

The annual three on three tournament is set to grab around 2,500 players at Newman high school.

That number and the amount of spectators makes it the third largest Macker tournament in the country.

And the organizers are excited to get things going.

Says Organizer Danny Rozwadowski, "It's great, I mean the weather is the biggest factor we look at and its sunny, a little overcast but we're excited. Being a part of this community for 18 years so we're looking forward to the players, the basketball, all the fans coming out. We just wanna thank the sponsors for keeping this thing in Wausau for so many years."
