WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) One of the biggest three-on-three basketball tournaments in the Midwest comes to Wausau this weekend. The Gus Macker basketball tournament starts with an opening ceremony at 8am tomorrow and runs through Sunday. The event is a fundraiser for the athletic department at Newman Catholic High School.
Teams travel from across the region to take part, filling most available hotel rooms in the area. Some out-of-towners will be registering today from noon to 7pm at the high school.
There will be some changes because of construction at the Newman athletic fields. Some of the courts that had been there in past years are being moved to the Newman parking lot off Bridge Street. Other courts will be in the Wausau-West parking lot.
