FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - Two nights a week since facilities were allowed to reopen, Fort Wayne area basketball players ranging from the high school ranks to the professional have been getting together to play.

Renewing or making new friendships is part of it, but the high level of competition has also created an opportunity for these player to sharpen and improve their games.

Over 20 guys will show up at the SportOne Parkview Fieldhouse and make up two courts of action, with teams changing opponents after a certain time so that every group gets to see the other three during the 90 minute session.

Among those who have been taking part, V.J. Beachem, James Blackmon, Jr. Bryson Scott, Brenton Scott, Brachen Hazen, Ali Ali, and Matt Holba, just to name a few.
