Tournament Rules
Game times:
Be prepared to play from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Sunday, November 6. Winners of each division will receive their prizes at half time of a CMU basketball game.

Playing Rules:
Each game will last 20 minutes or until a team reaches 20 points, whichever occurs first. The clock will only stop for injuries or score discrepancies. If, at the end of 20 minutes of play, the score is tied, the next team to score will win. No specific margin of victory is required. Baskets inside the 3-point line will be worth 1 point. 3-point baskets will be worth 2 points. After a made basket, the defensive team will obtain possession. All inbounds must be checked by the defensive team. Following a defensive rebound, the ball must be cleared outside the 3-point line in any direction from the basket. A shot taken and converted without proper clearance will not count, and the offensive team will retain possession. Fouls on a shot will result in 1 free throw unless the shot is taken behind the 3-point line which will result in 2 free throws. After 7 team fouls, the bonus rule will apply, and 1 free throw will be awarded. If a player is fouled in the act of shooting and the basket is made, the player will receive 1 free throw. Each team is allowed 1 thirty second time-out per game, and the time-out cannot be called in the last 2 minutes of the game.

$90 per team (3 games guaranteed - limit 5 players per team). Every player will receive an official tournament t-shirt. WHEN SIGNING IN THE MORNING OF THE TOURNAMENT, PLEASE HAVE ALL MEMBERS OF YOUR TEAM PRESENT. Teams are allowed to pay the day of the event.

Players can only play on one team. Teams will consist of a minimum of 3 players & a maximum of 5 players.

Game Balls:
Game balls will be provided, but teams must bring basketballs for warm-ups. A regulation-size ball will be used for all age groups.

All games will be played at Colorado Mesa University.
