Celebrity basketball tonight!

If you are looking for some fun hoops to watch, there will be a celebrity basketball game tonight (Friday, May 29) at Borah High School starting at 7:00 PM. This is a charity event working with the Ada County Sheriff's Employee Association (ACSEA). At the event will be former Broncos Matt Bauscher, Daryn Colledge, Ryan Clady, Vinny Perretta and more. And we're told there will be a dunk competition as well.

BAM Jam will have a presence there. Be sure to check it out; should be a ton of fun!


Updating an update

We just received a "Tweet" from the Spokane Hoopfest - over 6,600 teams have registered! So our question is this: why not Boise? Can you imagine?

Here is a video that gives a glimpse of just how big this thing has gotten up north. And provides a road map as to where BAM Jam is heading.


Up in Spokane...

Just saw this about the Spokane Hoopfest, the world's largest 3 on 3 tournament -

So, if they were at 6,400 teams last year and now they are even bigger, does that mean they are going to hit 6,600? 6,700? Wow! Can you imagine having even just a fraction of this in Boise? Think how many people would be spending money downtown! Think about how much money we could donate to charity! Think about how much hoops this town would be playing! Let's do it!

By the way, if you are looking for BAM Jam updates via Twitter (similar to the Hoopfest version), check out the updates via the Idaho Select Twitter account, You can also search using the #bamjam search term.
