BUFFALO, NY ( WKBW ) Thousands of hoop fans young and old are taking over the streets of Buffalo.

The popular "Gus Macker 3 on 3" tournaments are being staged in the streets around Buffalo's City Hall in one of the largest events of the summer.

Participants compete against teams in their age and class division for possible trophies and prizes.
