Basketball Players Competing to be King of the Rock

This weekend will give basketball players a chance to start their journey to be called King of the Rock.

Energy drink maker Red Bull will be hosting a one-on-one basketball tournament at Sunset Park Saturday.

It is the qualifying round for a final tournament held on the island of Alcatraz in the San Francisco Bay in September. The top two players from Las Vegas will advance.

Only the first 64 players to register will be accepted in the competition. Registration starts at 5 p.m. Competition begins at 7 p.m.

Amateurs and pros can compete but competitors must be at least 16 years old. Players between 16 and 18 years old must have a parent or guardian sign a waiver.  

The rules are the same as a regulation game, but games only last five minutes.
