‘Right on Time’ Wins Basketball Tourney

“Right on Time” beat “Get Well” 26-18 to win the 4th annual Spring into Health Three-on-Three Basketball Tournament. The 13-team, single elimination tournament took place May 28 at the Bldg. 10 sports court behind Lipsett Amphitheater.

“It was a total team effort, everyone on the team contributed to us being victorious,” said OD’s Casey Hargrove, Right on Time’s captain. “There were no easy games, and we are ready to come back next year and defend our title.” His teammates included NIAID’s Sabrina Mangat, OD’s Chris Farley and OD’s Lindel Schuyler.

Before each game, a referee flipped a coin to determine which team received the ball first. Once the game began, the referee kept score, called fouls and watched the clock. All baskets were worth 2 points and each game lasted 20 minutes. Every team had to include at least one female. And every team could have as many as two substitutes who could enter the game at any time.

The tournament was part of the Spring into Health Initiative. The month-long effort included several free physical fitness classes. The activities were part of NIH’s commitment to the HealthierFeds initiative.
