Dream KillersThe Dream Killers took first place at Gus Macker in Quincy, Ill on May 26. The girls competed in the 15-16 age group with 15 in their bracket. They play for HYPE of St. Louis and are coached by Brandi Tipton Smith.

The Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament is a nationwide event for players of a variety of age and skill levels. The Tournament is designed so that anyone can play: male or female, young and old, short and tall, the most experienced or no experience at all. This maintains the purity and integrity of the driveway game. Since 1987, the Macker tour has expanded, holding a total of 972 tournaments with approximately 2.2 million players – male and female from seven years old to 50+ – and more than 23 million spectators.
