When Hermanson returns to the Lilac City this week, he’ll be playing in his first Hoopfest, but in a different capacity than most of the 6,000-plus teams registered for the world’s biggest 3-on-3 tournament.

He and former Santa Clara guard Henry Caruso are teamed up in the eight-team Spokane Hoops 3×3 World Invitational at Nike Center Court, featuring FIBA rules and a $5,000 grand prize.

FIBA games are 10 minutes long but are continuously moving, featuring a 12-second shot clock with no breaks between buckets.

The tournament, which includes a championship berth to the Edmonton 3×3 Challenger in September, begins Friday at noon.

“With (FIBA 3×3) being in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo next year, and us being one of the bigger 3-on-3 tournaments in the world, we thought it would be a great opportunity to showcase it at Hoopfest,” Hoopfest projects and events manager Connor Walsh said.

*** and ***

NY Harlem: The 10th-ranked 3×3 team in the world doesn’t feature a player from a major college basketball program, but that hasn’t seemed to matter.

Dominique Jones, a former member of the Harlem Globetrotters, Kidani Brutus (D-I Manhattan College), Marcel Esonwune (D-III York College) and Antoinne Morgano are aiming for cash and an even higher ranking.

JFOUND: @_susanmegan [MC2012] Tips for a Busy Post-Graduate



Work in a Workout: Tips for a Busy Post-Graduate

After I graduated from Manhattan College in 2012, I found that the best way to handle all the changes that come after graduation, was to focus on my health and fitness. As I cheerleader, I have always been active, but now that I was no longer part of a team and back home and not working out, it challenged me to find a way incorporate fitness back into my life.

I signed up at the local YMCA and began going to the gym a few days a week. It was productive, but the routine was predictable and I was not used to working out by myself. For years, I worked out with teammates and small groups and found this worked best for me. Around the time, I found myself in this rut, I ran into one of my friends from high school who was on the same cheerleading team as me. Although we lost touch in college, our interest in fitness was an easy way to pick back up our friendship. She shared her same struggle of not being motivated at the gym and we decided to look for group classes that could keep us motivated.

Zumba classes have always been a favorite of ours! It is an hour that we are just able to dance and have fun without even thinking that we were working out. My friend recently became a certified Zumba instructor, so it was a great opportunity for me to support her as well. I recommend Zumba to anyone looking to change up their routine while having a lot of fun.

I started doing yoga about two years ago after an injury, and it is one of the best decisions I could have made for myself. I go to yoga twice a week at a yoga studio and the YMCA and take Vinyasa classes. This is a beginner level class but you will see progress as you continue to go to class. Not only is this my time to unwind from the day, it has increased my flexibility and taught me techniques to calm down after a long day. Everyone can benefit from yoga, especially anyone with any back injuries.

If you are really looking for a challenge, I recommend KettleBell Kickboxing! You can search for a Certified Trainer in your area through a quick Google search. I found a gym in my hometown called Trinity Training. The staff is great and I felt very comfortable trying this class! This high intensity class is usually an hour and includes 1 minute intervals of various workouts incorporating kettle bells. You will feel the workout immediately after the class. I was sore as soon as I got home, but it was definitely worth it!

Even with all these workouts, nutrition is key in keeping up with this healthy lifestyle! Tone It Up has great nutrition plans and workouts that are easy to follow. They also have a Tone It Up Community,where you can meet girls in your area who have an interest in health and fitness.

I’m so glad that I have incorporated these classes into my regular workout because it has motivated me to keep up with this healthy lifestyle. It is also a great way to make new friends who share the same interests, which is sometimes hard to do after college. These classes are easy to find, and have great discount rates for students. Some gyms even offer free classes for first time customers.

“Sound Lounge has enjoyed incredible success over the past 20 years, and I will work to ensure it continues its reign,” Falborn said. “As the industry evolves, we want to keep assimilating and adapting to changes in media and the needs of our clients. We’re moving forward with the times and are committed to being at the forefront of everything premium for sound.”

One of Falborn’s first tasks will be to add a new member to the studio’s team of producers. “We want to ensure that our producers have the support they need so that projects are managed with utmost efficiency, even when the studio is operating at capacity,” she observed.
