I remember the good old days when the Gus Macker basketball tournament used to take place in downtown Lansing in the 1990's in conjunction with Riverfest, and also was in downtown East Lansing in the early 2000s.

Get ready, because the 3 on 3 Gus Macker basketball tournament is coming to the Meridian Mall parking lot for a weekend this summer.

Gus Macker will host a tournament July 14-16 at Meridian Mall in Okemos.  The tournament will be part of the 175 year celebration of Meridian Township.

Gus Macker owner and founder Scott McNeal is excited for the tournament to be in a centrally located place like Meridian Mall.  McNeal has noticed resurgence in recent years with Gus Macker 3 on 3 basketball, especially in Michigan.  Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
