For the third straight year, Grand Island will be home to the Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament.
Event officials announced the tourney will be held June 10-11 via press release. More details will be announced during a news conference at Fisherman's Landing on Friday.
This will be the 26th edition of a Gus Macker Tournament in Western New York. The tournament used to serve as a fundraiser for the Buffalo Police Athletic League, calling downtown Buffalo home until moving to Darien Lake during the PAL's final year of involvement with the event in 2014.
A change in the management team at Darien Lake led to the parties opting out of their working arrangement in spring 2015 -- seemingly ending the event's future in the Buffalo-Niagara area, until Corey McGowan and his production company entered into a three-year agreement with Gus Macker to host the event.
