2024 Doghouse Classic 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament

The Doghouse Classic is an original Michigan Tech event that saw its beginnings over 30 years ago under the direction of Kevin Borseth, head women’s basketball coach at the time. The Doghouse Classic was a long-standing tradition in the Houghton and Hancock area up until the last tournament took place in 2007. In 2016, the tradition was reestablished. Michigan Tech Recreation is excited about the opportunity to host the tournament and bring the Doghouse back to its former glory!

The tournament will take place in the SDC Multipurpose Room on six competition courts. The number of teams registered will determine the number of divisions and the tournament format for each division. The preferred format will be a double-elimination bracket. Tournament brackets will not be available until the day of the tournament.

Divisions – Boys and girls divisions for grade levels 4-8, JV, Varsity, and Men’s and Women’s Opens.

Cost – $120/team (4 players/team)
Registration closes April 8, 11:59pm.

This tournament is an excellent opportunity to have some fun playing 3-on-3 basketball in a friendly yet competitive environment. Prizes for division champs and event swag for all participants!
