In this thrilling tournament 10 teams battled each other for glory. They battled each other in the 3 vs 3 basketball tournament organized by the RAC. All teams contained thee players and a few teams had a fourth player as a sub. Through it was a long tournament a winner emerged at the end. The Cavs battled team Turbo in the final and it stayed exiting till the end. At the end the Cavs managed to score the final point that made the difference.
All teams came well prepared and some teams even brought their coach and mascot. We saw teams with international students, but also teams with domestic students and it was a very multicultural tournament.
All with all it was a very successful tournament and the winning team (the Cavs) won a gift box and a spot on the wall of eternal fame. The wall of eternal fame will show all the winners from the tournaments. https://racgreenriver.wordpress.com/wall-of-fame/
