updated  This year’s Hoopfest was about as average as Spokane isn’t. More than 250,000 people gathered in downtown Spokane to shoot free throws and make slam dunks for the annual 3-on-3 basketball tournament. The largest tournament of its kind in the world, this year’s event brought together 6,000 teams, 3,000 volunteers and 450 courts spanning 45 city blocks. It was big, it was hot and it was a heck of an event.
