ASCE OC YMF Annual Basketball Tournament
By: Nestor Godinez
The 8th annual ASCE OC YMF 2015 Basketball tournament was held on Saturday June 20, 2015. The Basketball Tournament is a very popular tradition that pits teams against each other in competitive yet friendly 3-on-3 half court basketball. Some companies field a team every single year. Eight teams of a maximum of four members from local engineering companies and ASCE university student chapters consisted of both male and female players. This year’s tournament was held on a bright and sunny afternoon on the outdoor courts in Centennial Park in Santa Ana. Teams were divided into two groups of 4 and played a round robin with the teams in their groups. Every team played a minimum of three games with the first and second seed teams of each group moving onto the semifinals. In the end, the team from Kimley-Horn was crowned champion. This is their second championship in three years of competing.
