BIG3 Skips San Antonio

Published

on

On July 19, 2019 the Big3 announced that a brand new major basketball festival will be taking place in Dallas, TX on August, 17th, the day the league was scheduled to play in San Antonio. It is my understanding that this is the third season the BIG3 has skipped San Antonio.

It is unfortunate that ticket holders like myself had to find out through individual sources and Facebook that the game was canceled. So, in the event you are a Big3 ticket holder and was not aware that the San Antonio games have been canceled, it is a fact. If you purchased your tickets through Ticketmaster online you will want to follow up on your refund by calling the Ticketmaster Fan Support line.

The “New” Basketball Festival is supposed to include additional events throughout the entire weekend to included musical performances by rappers T.I. and Yella Beezy. The festival is also set to feature all six weekly games on one day at American Airlines Center with fans being able to watch six games with just one ticket and experience a series of Young3 clinics for area youth throughout the weekend, with player meet and greets for fans.

And Another One….

Simone Biles, aka “the GOAT,” set another record Saturday, May 22, 2021 becoming the first women ever to land the extremely difficult Yurchenko double pike vault move during competition at the GK US Classic in Indianapolis. The move is a roundoff onto a springboard, followed by a back handspring onto the vaulting table, and ending with a piked double backflip into the air to landing. Historically this move has only been completed by just a few male gymnasts.

Biles, 24, successfully defended her GK US Classic all-around title. This was her first competition since October 2019.
